Structured ASICs are cool! Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 10/17/2005 Post a comment In addition to CPLDs, FPGAs, FPAAs, FPNAs, and programmable processors, Programmable Logic Designline is also going to cover Structured ASICs.
Microchip’s DSP PICs: Whatever next? Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 10/14/2005 Post a comment You can only imagine my surprise to hear that those clever little rapscallions at Microchip are now selling 16-bit PIC microcontrollers with DSP-centric functionality!
Who is that masked man? Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 10/12/2005 Post a comment I’m currently bouncing off the walls with excitement, because this is my first day to officially take the reins as the editor of this mega-cool site.
Xilinx FPGA-powered Ghostrider competes in DARPA Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 10/7/2005 Post a comment I love zoomy applications--and this one is literally one of the zoomiest I've seen. Xilinx Spartan-3 and Virtex-II Pro FPGAs are at the heart of an autonomous vehicle's vision algorithm, allowing the vehicle to 'see' its surroundings, even in adverse conditions.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
