I just heard from Xilinx that they have put together a webinar on "Designing cost-effective, greener, LTE basestations with Xilinx FPGAs." I thought this could be of interest to you, so I wanted to pass along the info.
The webcast is being held Tuesday, March 8th at 8AM PST/11AM EST/1600 GMT. Xilinx tells me that they will be focused primarily on base station cost and power reduction. The presenter is Mark Quartermain of the Communications Business Unit. If this is of interest to you, you can register here.
I love Bluetooth. Little did I know, seventeen years ago when I was assigned my first project to write about the origins of Bluetooth and the viking that inspired the name that it would bring so much joy and convenience to my life
The main point of this blog is to point out that there is a major shift in LDMOS technology for cellular applications and the device operating voltage is changing from the current 28V range up into the 48V region.
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
