All You Can Eat: A Bountiful Buffet of EE

Ivo Bolsens Talks Programmable Platforms, Kilopass v. Sidense, and The World's Smallest Motor

In this week’s Fish Fry, I’ve got a bountiful buffet of EE beauty for you to sink your teeth into. I interview Ivo Bolsens (CTO and Senior Vice President – Xiinx) about the changing nature of FPGA design wins and why Xilinx is banking on its Zynq platform to transform the industry as we know it.

Also this week, I check in on the recent rounds of litigation between non-volatile memory IP suppliers Sidense and Kilopass and I dig into the details of the world’s smallest motor.

I have a Spartan-6 LX9 Microboard to give out, but you’ll have to listen to find out how to win.

Demo: Achronix Speedster7t 2D NoC vs. Traditional FPGA Routing

Sponsored by Achronix

This demonstration compares an FPGA design utilizing Achronix Speedster7t 2D Network on Chip (NoC) for routing signals with the FPGA device, versus using traditional FPGA routing. The 2D NoC provides a 40% reduction in logic resources required with 40% less compile time needed versus using traditional FPGA routing. Speedster7t FPGAs are optimized for high-bandwidth workloads and eliminate the performance bottlenecks associated with traditional FPGAs.
