Xilinx, ISR offering SDR kit News & Analysis 2/22/2006 Post a comment Xilinx and ISR Technologies released an off-the-shelf prototyping-to-production kit that the companies say accelerates implementation of software defined radio modems.
Virtex-4 FPGA-based kit accelerates adoption of software-defined radio modems Product News 2/22/2006 Post a comment Xilinx has teamed up with ISR Technologies to develop an off-the-shelf prototyping-to-production kit that accelerates implementation of SDR (software-defined radio) modems. The SDR kit leverages the partial reconfiguration feature of Virtex-4 FPGAs, and complies with JTRS-mandated specifications, including the Software Communications Architecture (SCA).
RTOS designed for multicore systems Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 2/13/2006 Post a comment I find it relatively easy to wrap my brain around the concept of an operating system running on a single processor. But what about a system containing multiple heterogeneous CPU and DSP cores?
Two 90-nm FPGA product lines hit the market with lower price tags Product News 2/9/2006 Post a comment Lattice Semiconductor launched the 90-nm generation of its FPGAs with the introduction of two product families. The LatticeSC (system chip) FPGAs combine high-speed I/O, SerDes, structured ASIC blocks and a high-performance fabric on a single device. And its second-generation ECP2 devices offer double the density at half the cost.
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.
