The Times They Are A Changin’

Moshe Gavrielov Gets His Zynq On and IBM Rolls Out a Graphene IC

In this week’s Fish Fry, my special guest is Xilinx CEO Moshe Gavrielov who chats with me about their new Zynq embedded processing platform and how he sees this new addition not only changing the course of the Xilinx roadmap going forward but also where he thinks the FPGA industry is headed as a whole.

Also this week, I explore the new Graphene IC unveiled by IBM and check out the Freescale/BMW collaboration that just might make parking our cars just a little bit easier.

And, in keeping with the Xilinx theme, you’ll definitely want to get in on the competition for this week’s awesome nerdy giveaway – a Spartan-6 LX9 MicroBoard and as usual you’ll need to tune in to find out how to win.

If you like the idea of this new series be sure to drop a comment in the box below.

See 400 GbE Running on a Speedster®7t FPGA from Achronix

Sponsored by Achronix

400GbE is required for next-generation, high-performance networking applications. In this video, Achronix demonstrates 400GbE connectivity on a Speedster7t FPGA integrated into a VectorPath™ PCIe accelerator card. The demonstration shows 400GbE traffic generated within the FPGA and transmitted across the FPGA’s 2D network on chip or NoC to the Ethernet subsystem. The 400GbE traffic is then looped back and checked within the FPGA fabric to compare to the original data stream.

Utilizing the Benefits of Coupled Inductors

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated (now part of Analog Devices)

In a multiphase design, coupled inductors offer many advantages compared to discrete inductors including current ripple cancellation, improved transient performance, higher inductor current saturation, smaller inductor size, output capacitance and improved overall efficiency performance. This application note highlights how the benefit of current ripple cancellation can be traded for either smaller size or higher efficiency, depending on design specifications.

Yield Explorer and SiliconDash

Sponsored by Synopsys

Once a design goes to tape-out, the real challenges begin. Teams find themselves drowning in data from design-process-test during production ramp-up, and have to cope with data from numerous sources in different formats in the manufacturing test supply chain. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Mark Laird of Synopsys in part three of our series on the Silicon LifeCycle Management (SLM) platform, discussing how Yield Explorer and SiliconDash give valuable insight to engineering and manufacturing teams.
