Just what is a Christmas Cracker? Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 12/28/2005 Post a comment Having been born in the UK, this is the time of year when I have to explain British holiday traditions to my American friends, such as "just what is a Christmas Cracker?"
I'm in Nixi Tube Heaven! Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 12/16/2005 Post a comment I've just been introduced to the "Mike's Electric Stuff" website, which provides a goldmine of information on early display technologies and other "stuff".
Mixed-signal FPGA is here to stay! Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 12/13/2005 Post a comment I've seen a number of devices that might be classed as "field-programmable analog arrays (FPAAs)" appear and disappear, but I think this one is here to stay...
OCP is the one for me! Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 12/7/2005 Post a comment Connecting IP cores together sounds easy if you say it quickly and wave your arms around a lot, but connecting these little scamps together is a non-trivial task.
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
