Paul Dillien's first job in semiconductors was as a chip designer. After completing four chips he turned to marketing them. In the past 30 years, he's spent half his time marketing FPGAs. His first involvement with FPGAs crashed and burned because of place-and-route software issues. He was then hired by one of the "Big Two" in strategic and tactical marketing roles. Paul is the author of "The FPGA Market" report, which gives a unique insight into this market sector. Currently he represents a number of UK SME companies, including a leading vendor of encryption IP for FPGAs.
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?
