Remember Bill Joy's Fear? Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 8/25/2005 Post a comment So, I know you're going to increasingly be experiencing the joy of designing FPGAs into the zoomiest applications. News is coming out fast and furious regarding that fact and I'm very excited as well.
Thwarting IP Hackers Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 8/24/2005 Post a comment Seldom do companies write complete articles to answer my Blogs. This week, Actel did. Last week I asked, "Given Actel's announcement this week (Actel Turns Security up a Notch) of secure in-system programmability based on 128-bit AES encryption, it made me just a bit curious as to where are programmable device security breaches to date?"

I hate to shop. Although I know that there is a certain level of risk in doing business online, I still do a ton of it. I love Amazon.com, BN.com, Ebay, and Coldwater Creek. So far, I've been lucky that my transactions have remained secure; at least I think so.
Where No FPGA Has Gone Before Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 8/10/2005 Post a comment This week Mitrionics announced the ability to push-button program FPGAs in software for such lofty supercomputing computational-intensive applications as the human genome project, oil and gas exploration, aerospace, and finance.
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
