Software Cat and Mouse

IP, Ownership, and Cyber Piracy Today

So you’ve built yourself some lovely software. You’ve shined and polished the corners, field tested it, and even gotten the approval of the VCs on high. But what if, the whole time, there was a tiny hole in your code? And because of that tiny hole, the bad guys were able to waltz right in and are now using your software all willy-nilly-like without paying. Well folks, this is happening a lot more than we know. Or, maybe we do know about it but we just don’t want to talk about it. This week we’re pulling back the curtain on software piracy, IP thievery, and unlicensed software usage with Ted Miracco from SmartFlow Compliance Solutions. Ted and I discuss where the biggest piracy threats are coming from these days and how companies big and small can protect themselves from those sneaky, scurvy-ridden cyber pirates.

Adaptive Beamformer: An HLS Optimization Case Study with SLX FPGA

Sponsored by Silexica

Learn more about how SLX FPGA provides a productivity and efficiency boost when using high-level synthesis (HLS) to implement FPGA applications in C/ C++, through automated analysis and optimization. In this beamforming example, SLX FPGA is able to achieve lower latency and cut development time from weeks down to minutes compared to hand-optimization for similar cost of resources.
