Xilinx can't chew gum and walk at the same time?

It is wrong impression that FPGA consume more power. It all depends what you are comparing with. If you try to implement the some FPGA features into software running ARM or similar processors, you will use 10x if not 100x more power.

Will you be willing to share your use case such as image format, type of video processing algorithms, and memory bandwidth requirement?

The comments about yield are spot on but does nobody care about power consumption any more? I think not! There are much better alternatives to FPGA for flexible hardware on SoC.

Perhaps fixing the dismal yield Xilinx apparently has on large die might be a better alternative than going for 3D chip rocket science?

I first heard about this concept at FPT in Beijing last year. It sounds good, but I will wait and see how it is implemented and what the overall cost is. It will probably fly for some high performance apps where cost is not an issue, but let's see how far down the cost curve this idea goes before making a final judgment.

The challenge is performance. This is not a new concept. The key part is finding a mass market strategy for this. Until they have a product, they will not ascertain the market appeal.

There are plenty of applications for this basic concept of FPGA cross over for SoC. However, we have not seen any practical implementation. One urgent requirement is SoC with FPGA for video processing of CMOS image sensor with HDMI output. Can Xilinx take lead and provide some demonstration for this? This may be again suited for medium volume application. For high volume application, it may not be cost effective.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
