Chalk Talk Spartan-6 FPGAs in Video Designs

Video design is easy, right? A silicon press, a couple of coders and some lines of software, and you’re there, right? Well, not so fast. If your design requires intelligent processing of the video, keeping your performance high and your power low in your next video design can be a truly challenging task, but using … Read More → "Spartan-6 FPGAs in Video Designs"
