Sneaky Bits, Gold Bars and Tiny Packages

Fish Fry - January 28, 2011

In my Fish Fry this week, I delve into sneaky ways to take advantage of the variance found in our semiconductor processes, check out the variety of features found in the new family of 28nm FPGAs from Altera and discover a truly unique USB hub from Thanko. Also this week, I look forward to next week’s DesignCon and announce a winner of last week’s nerdy giveaway.

If you like the idea of this new series, be sure to drop a comment in the box below. I appreciate all of your comments so far, and we will be working to enhance the Fish Fry each week – as long as you’re watching.
