Six Automated Steps to Design Partitioning for Multi-FPGA Prototyping Boards

Six Automated Steps to Design Partitioning for Multi-FPGA Prototyping Boards
by Daniel Nenni on 03-09-2020 at 6:00 am

Aldec Webinar SemiWiki

Before starting your next FPGA Prototyping Project you should catch the next SemiWiki webinar – “Six Automated Steps to Design Partitioning for Multi-FPGA Prototyping Boards”, in partnership with Aldec.

A significant portion of my  30+ years in the EDA industry has revolved around design verification with some form of FPGA … Read More


WEBINAR: Prototyping With Intel’s New 80M Gate FPGA

WEBINAR: Prototyping With Intel’s New 80M Gate FPGA
by Daniel Nenni on 01-29-2020 at 10:00 am

The next generation FPGAs have been announced, and they are BIG!  Intel is shipping its Stratix 10 GX 10M FPGA, and Xilinx has announced its VU19P FPGA for general availability in the Fall of next year.  The former is expected to support about 80M ASIC gates, and the latter about 50M ASIC gates.  And, to bring this mind-boggling gate… Read More


MEMS Actuation and the Art of Prototyping

MEMS Actuation and the Art of Prototyping
by Bernard Murphy on 11-27-2019 at 5:00 am

Thermal actuator prototyping

I mentioned a while back that I’m really getting into the role that sensors play in our new hyper-connected world – in the IoT, intelligent cars, homes, cities, industry, utilities, medicine, agriculture, etc, etc. If we can think of a way to sense it and connect it, someone is probably already doing it. But there’s more to … Read More


S2C Delivers FPGA Prototyping Solutions with the Industry’s Highest Capacity FPGA from Intel!

S2C Delivers FPGA Prototyping Solutions with the Industry’s Highest Capacity FPGA from Intel!
by Daniel Nenni on 11-19-2019 at 6:00 am

In 2016 we published our book “Prototypical: The Emergence of FPGA-Based Prototyping for SoC Design” which began an incredible journey through ASIC prototyping. While we are working on an update to that book there is some recent Prototyping news that is worthy of praise.

First and foremost, S2C Inc. has just announced THE single… Read More


Cadence and Green Hills Share More Security Thoughts at ARM Techcon

Cadence and Green Hills Share More Security Thoughts at ARM Techcon
by Randy Smith on 10-15-2019 at 10:00 am

On Wednesday, October 9, 2019, I had the pleasure of spending the day at ARM Techcon at the San Jose Convention Center. In the morning, in addition to getting some sneak peeks into the exhibitor area, I attended some of the morning keynote presentations, which focused on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) topics.… Read More


AI Chip Prototyping Plan

AI Chip Prototyping Plan
by Daniel Nenni on 09-10-2019 at 6:00 am

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with a chip designer for an AI start-up to talk about using FPGA prototyping as part of a complex silicon verification strategy. Like countless other chip designers for whom simulation alone simply does not provide sufficient verification coverage, this AI start-up also believed that… Read More

Are the 100 most promising AI start-ups Prototyping?

Are the 100 most promising AI start-ups Prototyping?
by Daniel Nenni on 07-12-2019 at 10:00 am

I came across a report on the 100 most promising AI start-ups. The report claimed that CBInsights had “selected the 100 most promising AI start-ups from a pool of 3K+ companies based on several factors …”  Wait, what … 3K+ companies!?!?  This was a stunning reminder of the sheer magnitude of what is shaping up to be a veritable tsunami… Read More


FPGA Prototyping for AI Product Development

FPGA Prototyping for AI Product Development
by Randy Smith on 06-21-2019 at 8:00 am

I recently wrote about The Implications of the Rise of AI/ML in the Cloud. In that article, I wrote about my expectation that the rapidly growing AI market will lead to the accelerated use of high-level synthesis (HLS), prototyping, and emulation. In this article, I will focus on the prototyping portion of that – specifically FPGA… Read More

Recently, Daniel Nenni blogged on the presentation Wally Rhines gave at #56th DAC. Daniel provided a great summary, but I want to dive into a portion of the presentation in more detail. I love Wally’s presentations, but sometimes you cannot absorb the wealth of information he provides when you initially see it. It’s… Read More
