Vanessa Cooper (DVCon US 2021 Program Chair) joins us to discuss the details of DVCon US 2021, what’s new with this year’s conference and all of the cool stuff you will learn by attending. Also this week, we check out a new research study that … Read More → "For the Love of Coffee and Design Verification"

Redefining Xilinx?

Xilinx made a batch of announcements this week aimed at the data center. The company rolled out a new line of programmable network 100Gb/s SmartNIC interface cards, a “SmartWorld AI” video analytics solution, an algorithmic trading framework, and (finally) the Xilinx App Store. Taken together, they make good on Xilinx’s long-term “data center first” strategy. And, viewed on a more macro scale, they represent … Read More → "Redefining Xilinx?"

Learning to Let It Go: Obsolescence Management and an OEM Tale of Woe

“Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it.” – Ann Landers 

In this week’s podcast, we dive deep into the world of long-term product sustainment practices and obsolescence management. Tania Read More → "Learning to Let It Go: Obsolescence Management and an OEM Tale of Woe"

PolarFire SoC FPGA Family

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Microchip

FPGA SoCs can solve numerous problems for IoT designers. Now, with the growing momentum behind RISC-V, there are FPGA SoCs that feature RISC-V cores as well as low-power, high-security, and high-reliability. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with KK from Microchip Technology about the new PolarFire SoC family that is ideal for demanding IoT endpoint applications.

can't figure out if it's choice or compulsion, but always have something on the go myself ( also even finish some of them ) by all means, hoard not the splendour and the glory

Thanks UK Joe -- I just needed one person to encourage me (open the floodgates LOL)

I do like this these Victorian/steam punk type projects. Shame Mr Mason isn't around today to see his ideas being used in the 21st century, and I approve of the way he drew his battery and labelled the positive/negative terminals on the patent. His way always made more ...

And yet both afraid to compare their benchmarks against AMD.

Just go with AMD.

Why are you so butt hurt? So what? Microsoft likes to be biased, doesn't that just make it better to use an Intel CPU, why be a warrior when you can win without fighting.

Yup, the batteries are different. Screen brightness was the same in the M1 vs. Core i7 benchmarks that Intel ran.

What matters most is the system, not the CPU. Intel sells CPUs that are overloaded with complexity that tries to hide the fact that data is in memory and the CPU has to get an instructions and operands from memory and put the result in memory. Starting with the GPU ...

Funny choice of Intel benchmarks. First, they use Windows and Office 365. These huge apps are of course optimized for Intel processors. Microsoft has a long, long history of damaging their apps running on Macs. To make the Windows experience better than the (now highly damaged) Mac experience. Next, they use ...
