Achronix Gets Ready to Roll

In a special executive focus Fish Fry, this week I interview Achronix CEO Robert Blake about Achronix’s new high-end FPGA family (based on Intel’s new 22nm Tri-Gate technology).  Robert and I discuss why this new family may be a serious contender – going head-to-head with the most powerful FPGAs from the big guys.  We also explore what their software tool story looks like, and why domain-specific hard IP may be the key ingredient in their secret sauce.

Also this week, I am giving everyone another chance to win a MACHXO Pico Development Kit courtesy of Lattice Semiconductor, but you’ll have to listen to find out how to win.

I'm having olfactory flashbacks to the strangely satisfying scents found in machine shops. I love the smell of hot oil in the morning....

DNA of a Modern Mid-Range FPGA

Sponsored by Intel

While it is tempting to classify FPGAs simply based on logic capacity, modern FPGAs are alterable systems on chips with a wide variety of features and resources. In this blog we look closer at requirements of the mid-range segment of the FPGA industry.

Advancements in Motor Efficiency Enables More Sustainable Manufacturing
Climate change is encouraging the acceleration of sustainable and renewable manufacturing processes and practices and one way we can encourage sustainability in manufacturing is with the use of variable speed drive motor control. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Maurizio Gavardoni and Naveen Dhull from Analog Devices about the wide ranging benefits of variable speed motors, the role that current feedback plays in variable speed motor control, and how precision measurement solutions for current feedback can lead to higher motor efficiency, energy saving and enhanced sustainability.
