I am interested to see more active collaboration between academic and companies like GE on using or developing the most advanced FPGAs.

The more big companies such as GE get seriously involved with FPGAs, the better it is for this technology. The lack of standard boards and APIs has held back this technology for long.

You would think companies like GE could get early access to Xilinx design data and parts. It has been our experience that we can stay an entire FPGA generation ahead by designing our own boards internally.

Signal processing and data acquisition products are still dominated by the legacy designs. There is a market in the future which will help the industries to transform their legacy designs to more advanced products that use latest technologies. Usually the ASIC's or general purpose micro controllers are used in the platform based products. GE collaborating along with Xilinx would definitely pave way to the standard designs and will definitely penetrate the FPGA technologies into new markets.

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.
