@Max: Thank you for the information! The DSP blocks are not supported on Cyclone V SoCs I suppose? Are these new devices supported on the Quartus II design tool? Does the older versions of the tool support these new SoCs or it would be required to move to a newer version?
2. How much power does one of these consume running 1.5 TFLOPS, including the logic needed to get operands to the FPUs?
Also, I sure hope the developers remember to write their floating-point models using single precision, or they're going to get a nasty surprise when they discover that floating-point numbers are not real numbers.
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.
