Insight teams with inSilicon to resell FPGA cores News & Analysis 3/19/2001 Post a comment Seeking a broader sales channel than it can support internally, inSilicon Inc. has given semiconductor distributor Insight Electronics Inc. an exclusive franchise to resell its cores. In doing so, the IP developer will for the first time be able to address the FPGA market-a move that may bring a lower revenue payoff per design, but far more designs each year than ASICs.
Adaptive Silicon claims to cut cost of embedded programmable logic in SoC designs News & Analysis 3/12/2001 Post a comment MUNICH -- What's best--embedding chunks of programmable logic in large system-on-chip (SoC) designs, or integrating standard functions in large programmable logic devices? Privately-held Adaptive Silicon Inc., founded by former managers from National Semiconductor Corp., believes embedded programmable logic in multi-million-gate ASICs and standard ICs is the best way to go.
Altera rolls out first PLD in stacked-chip package News & Analysis 3/5/2001 Post a comment SAN JOSE -- Altera Corp. today (March 5) claimed it was the first supplier to offer a programmable logic device in a stacked-chip package.

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.
