Great job! As mentioned above, monolithic 3D deserves to be added. A similar job on various memory technologies: volatile (SRAM, S/DRAM etc.), non-volatile (E/E/PROM, NAND/NOR Flash etc.) would be very nice.... when you have time, no pressure (grin)
Thank you so much for your kind words -- I was worried about putting some of the simple stuff in, but for myself when I'm reading something by someone else, I always like to get the history and suchlike...
Max, very good mythbusting material.
I recall that National Semi had stacked ICs for the NSC800, a Z-80 clone. You could simply plug RAM chips, eeprom, and a peripherals chip on top of the processor, to have a full computer on the DIP-40-pin socket of the processor.
It could be called a "paleo-3D" technology [grin].
PPS. Must have mis-spelt something, your Fundamentals of FPGAs is here
And very good it is too, almost exactly what I asked for. So you can have the next 3 sundays off....
PS Max I put FPGA fundamentals into the search box of the EETimes home page and I see you did something on this in 2008...however I get 404 errors on all of the links. Maybe you could resurrect that as a starting point? Not sure if I have seen it before...
One thing I would like, that you would probably do very well Max, is something on how FPGAs are programmed, say from a specific application idea through the verilog/VHDL (not sure if that's right) to the actual programming. Next time you have a spare sunday (or three...)???
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
