DesignCon Take 2

Floating Point for FPGAs and TI’s Signal Integrity Solutions

In part two of my DesignCon 2012 coverage, I chat with Mike Parker (Altera) about FPGAs doing floating point and where he feels we are are headed in this realm. I also chat with Sanjay Gajendra (Texas Instruments) about how TI is aiming to make your multi-gigabit SerDes signal integrity issues a whole bunch easier. Also this week, I check out why the “app economy” has become a big deal in the United States and how a 9 year old girl is trumping this week’s mainstream scientific achievements.

I have another very cool MAX V CPLD Development kit (courtesy of Altera) to give away this week, but you’ll have to listen to find out how to win.
