ASIC Prototyping with FPGAs faces global development challenges in the hardware-software IoT and automotive markets.
See the new Virtex Ultrascale VU440, the world’s largest FPGA, in action being used to prototype 10 ARM® Cortex-A9 CPUs
Our AXIS software provides libraries for signal processing and inter-processor communications along with graphical tools to facilitate system visualization and rapid prototyping.
Systems with high speed serial links often have serial channels which result in signal distortion described as insertion loss, reflection, cross-talk, and other channel impairments. Receiver equalization can help compensate for such channel-driven losses and distortions, but link tuning and bring-up can be non-trivial even for the most experienced transceiver and signal integrity specialists. In this video, you'll learn how Xilinx FPGAs with fully auto-adaptive equalization is critical to high speed transceiver design and enables system designers to get their systems up and running quickly.
At DESIGN West 2012 (aka "ESC" San Jose), Senior Editor Chris A. Ciufo sat down with TI's Matt Kurtz, Manager, Wireless Connectivity Group. Matt's group's job is to add wireless capabilities to microcontrollers with "everything from ANT to ZigBee". Consider their SimpleLink initiative, which is comprised of chipsets, protocols, APIs and drivers that make easy the task of adding wireless to a TI microcontroller product. In this short video, Matt explains that TI's focus is one-stop-shopping and simplicity. Judging from market feedback, TI has met its goals.
The economic downturn has had an upside for some industry segments. PCB prototyping service Screaming Circuits has seen business climb steadily since it’s founding in 2003 as more companies have cut back staff and resources, stretching engineering staffs beyond their own capabilities. Screaming Circuits recently formed a relationship with Newark/element14 to offer their services to the element14 community. In this interview with Duane Benson, director of marketing and sales, Benson elaborates on the growing prototyping market in the PCB industry as well as the challenges and needs of their customer base.
