An IPv6 Refresher--Part I Design How-To 7/24/2006 Post a comment Excerpted from Deploying IPv6 Networks, Chapter 2--An IPv6 Refresher, this comprehensive series covers the concepts fundamental to undertsanding IPv6, including: the new addressing architecture, new header format and structure, enhanced functions of ICMP, and Layer 2 address-resolution mechanisms.
Amtech tag lets RFID ride the rails Teardown 7/24/2006 Post a comment
North of Austin is a piece of Old Texas where two railroad lines and a 120-year-old lime factory converge. During a recent train-spotting stop, I found a curious little box trackside and recognized it as an asset-tracking badge that had somehow gotten detached from a passing railcar. That meant electronics within--and a teardown waiting to happen.
4-Gbit NAND built at 65 nm Teardown 7/17/2006 Post a comment
Samsung has established the No. 1 market position in the top two semiconductor memory markets. But even as the memory leader, the company is not known for coasting. It continues to scale memory products aggressively into advanced geometries, a technique it used to achieve its current position. The latest example of Samsung's scaling efforts is the 4-Gbit NAND flash, the first standalone memory to be manufactured at the 65-
Blog Doing Math in FPGAs Tom Burke 24 comments For a recent project, I explored doing "real" (that is, non-integer) math on a Spartan 3 FPGA. FPGAs, by their nature, do integer math. That is, there's no floating-point ...
