Avery PCIe Speed Adapter IP at Work

We live in the age of big data. No matter how fast and complex modern SoCs are, it all comes down to how quickly data can get in and out that determines the system performance. And, there is a lot of data that today’s systems need to process. Naturally, system interfaces such as PCIe, DDR, HBM, etc., have been evolving rapidly too, to support… Read More

ProtoBridge Debug Blog 181021

Using FPGAs to prototype and debug SoCs as part of the SoC design verification hierarchy was pioneered by Quickturn Design Systems in the late 1980’s, and I have observed a wide variety of FPGA prototyping projects over the years.  In retrospect, three factors have determined the success of the FPGA prototyping project;

aivatech product 1

3D vision technology is rapidly evolving. Compared to 2D vision technology that deals with planar information, 3D vision works with physical information, including depth, which makes it possible to recognize and measure objects with curved surfaces and arcs. In addition, as deep machine learning and big data computing technologies… Read More
