Jacek Hanke is the CEO of the Polish company Digital Core Design (DCD), a leading provider of IP cores for ASICs and FPGAs. He is one of the co-founders of DCD, which was established in 1999 by three graduates from the Silesian University of Technology in Poland. Their studies at the Faculty of Automatic Control, Electronics, and Computer Science opened doors to the EDA world. When large companies from around the globe started to offer lucrative jobs in the US, Japan, and Taiwan, they instead decided to launch their own company in Poland. Since their early beginnings, the "apple of its father's eye" was the 8051 family of microcontroller cores. The most recent version – the DQ80251 – is more than 67 times faster than a standard 8051, thereby making it the world's fastest 8051 IP core. Read Jake's blog at Programmable Planet if you want to learn more about how to create fast IP cores for programmable devices.
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?
