Der ASIC-Markt lebt Product News 6/13/2005 Post a comment Einen guten Gesundheitszustand bescheinigen die Marktforscher von Dataquest den Märkten für Applikationsspezifische Schaltkreise (ASICs) und Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). Vor allem die Consumer-Elektronik haucht dem schon totgesagten ASIC-Markt neues Leben ein.
Development system supports multiple serial protocols Product News 6/7/2005 Post a comment A new multi-serial protocol development system, which incorporates Altera Corp.'s Stratix II EP2S90 field-programmable gate array (FPGA) and PMC-Sierra's PM8358QuadPHY 10GX serializer/deserializer (SERDES) transceiver, is available for rapid prototyping of high-performance backplane and line-interface solutions.
Enhanced tool set reconfigures FPGAs while system operates Product News 6/6/2005 Post a comment Programming software supporting Transparent Field Reconfiguration (TransFR) technology, which allows designers to reconfigure LatticeXP nonvolatile field-programmable gate arrays in the field without interrupting system operation, is available at no charge from Lattice Semiconductor Corp.
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.
