Spartan-3 issue could take weeks to resolve News & Analysis 7/7/2006 Post a comment A mold compound issue that forced programmable logic supplier Xilinx to issue a substantial recall of Spartan-3 FPGAs could take weeks to rectify, according to Satya Chillara, an analyst at American Technology Research.
Video and image processing design using FPGAs Design How-To 7/7/2006 Post a comment Higher resolution and advanced codecs are forcing developers to re-examine design architectures and consider, or re-consider, FPGA as an alternative to DSP, media processors, and ASICs. Altera explains why FPGA is a perfect fit.
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.
