Xilinx responds to Altera's FPGA benchmarks Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 5/30/2008 2 comments The folks at Xilinx say that they've re-run the tests with different tool settings and, overall, the Xilinx software solution with Synplify Pro and ISE 10.1 dominates.
$200 million for one FPGA? Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 5/20/2008 2 comments Thus far I haven't seen the pricing for Altera's new 40nm Stratix IV FPGAs, but if we were to extrapolate from an analog device I just saw, the result would make your eyes water!
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
