Duane's involvement in the hardware and software design world goes back to the days of the CDP1802 and Z80 up through current microcontrollers such as PIC, and ARM. After hours, he designs microcontroller and motor control boards for small robots under the moniker SteelPuppet. In his day job, he has been dishing out PCB layout and DFM advice via the Screaming Circuits blog since 2006. He is also a contributor to industry technical publications and conferences on the topics of trends in prototyping, and ways to improve efficiency in product development efforts. FPGAs are a new venture for Duane. Follow him on this site as he transitions from gate array newbie, expands his skill set and adds FPGA functionality to his robots and other projects.
The appellation "primary colors" refers to a small collection of colors that can be combined to form a range of additional colors, but which "small collection of colors" should we use as our primaries?
Today's FPGAs already integrate a substantial amount of "stuff" (MCU cores, programmable fabric, on-chip memory, etc.), so what's left to integrate and why is this being left for the future?
To celebrate Geek Pride Day, Sylvie Barak has created a mega-cool infographic that depicts how geeks have been building the Internet since 1832.
When traversing serial links with optics or backplanes, high-speed signals are degraded by impairments in the link, such as insertion loss, reflections, crosstalk, and optical dispersion.
Can statistical or heuristic verification really work for FPGA designs?
