The next process node is coming faster and faster with every passing press release. This week we’re taking a closer look at the brand new 14nm test chip rolled out by Cadence, ARM, and IBM, and we’re looking into the new nanotube memory technology being developed by IMEC and Nantero. Speaking of breaking new ground, my guest this week is Brad Quinton (Tektronix) and we’re going to chat about the most recent developments in FPGA prototyping, what Brad sees as the biggest problems for FPGA prototyping today, and why embedded instrumentation can be more effective than physical instruments.
Also this week, I dig into Amelia’s Mailbag and give everyone the chance to win an LX9 Spartan-6 MicroBoard courtesy of Xilinx.
