Thanks for the comment. We do in fact provide the targeted reference designs online for customers to download and evaluate, along with the tools, IP, and instructions. Each of the targeted reference designs has been designed to work on a specific board and FPGA device. Currently, customers would need one of these board or would need to design a board based on design files including board layout provided in downloadable material to evaluate the functionality running in hardware. The IP that is included in the each of the kits is either full versions or evaluation versions that timeout. Xilinx targeted design platforms include OS, IP, and drivers that come from Xilinx as well as third party providers. For these kits Xilinx provides support for customers. - Xilinx PR guy

Targeted design platforms are a good idea. Perhaps these hardware platforms can be put online so an interested engineer can try them out before purchasing them. One concern I have is the amount of IP that needs to be purchased to support the design and the number of 3rd parties involved. If the OS, some key IP and drivers all come from different companies support can be a real issue.

from what I hear this is a "buzzing" conference -- I wish I was there!

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
