QuickLogic Opens Up FPGA Design

The walled fortress is a time honored tradition in the FPGA business. Since the beginning of FPGA time, vendors of programmable logic silicon have kept a tight grip on the tool chains that are used to program their devices. If you want to do anything with a vendor’s chips, you need the vendor’s tools and the vendor’s rules. The only exceptions have been … Read More → "QuickLogic Opens Up FPGA Design"

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?"

Protecting Circuitry with eFuse IC

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Toshiba

Conventional fuses are rapidly becoming dinosaurs in our electronic systems. Finally, there is circuit protection technology that doesn’t rely on disposable parts and molten metal. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Jake Canon of Toshiba about eFuse - a smart solution that will get rid of those old-school fuses once and for all.

This is interesting, but the concept ha been around for a very long time. When I was just starting in the early 70's Signetics had this http://kazojc.com/elementy_czynne/IC/8220-4.pdf

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.
Posted on Feb 15 at 12:03pm by Karl Stevens
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 ...
