Enabling Technology Omni Design SWIFT

While the trend towards System-on-Chip (SoC) has been gathering momentum for quite some time, the primary driver has been integration of digital components, spurred by Moore’s law. Integrating more and more digital circuitry into a single chip has been consistently beneficial for performance, power, form factor and economic… Read More

Industrial Condition Monitoring

Mountains over 10,000 feet capped with snow in the winter. Some of the deepest, clearest blue sky you’ll find in the United States. Farmlands of green in the spring. That was the view looking out the second story window from the most awesome conference room I’ve ever taken a customer meeting. Even if I didn’t immediately understand… Read More

Do You Care About What Youre Measuring Cloud Data Centers

When I think about servers and data centers, I think about multiple-core/high-power CPUs, Intel’s domination over the years and GPUs coming on strong in recent years. I think about very fast digital interfaces, such as PCI Express connections and the latest DDR memory interface. Precision analog isn’t something that first comes… Read More

Xilinx and Red Pitaya is Tootie Fruity
by Luke Miller on 04-03-2014 at 12:00 pm

Xilinx’s Zynq SoC is the best selling FPGA of all time. Zynq has brought together, at first an uncomfortable but necessary mix of software and hardware engineers. Two very different but special kind of people. Me, I’m of the hardware persuasion. Zynq is the start of the much needed open FPGA community. This will drive down the price… Read More

The International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) was last week in San Francisco. Stéphane Le Tual, Pratap Narayan Singh, Christophe Curis, Pierre Dautriche, all from STMicroelectronics presented a paper on A 20GHz-BW 6b 10GS/s 32mW Time-Interleaved SAR ADC with Master T&H in 28nm UTBB FDSOI TechnologyRead More


Xilinx’s Mixed Signal FPGA

Xilinx’s Mixed Signal FPGA
by Luke Miller on 01-28-2014 at 10:00 am

Something in all the Xilinx chatter of UltraScale 20nm, 16nm, having massive amounts of Gigabit transceivers, DSP blocks, RAM, HLS, Rapid Design Closure gets lost… and that is Xilinx’s ability for Mixed Signals. I do not mean when you are talking with the wife (Remember Listen!), but a wonderful block that lives within… Read More


How to Optimize Analog IPs for High-end SoCs?

How to Optimize Analog IPs for High-end SoCs?
by Pawan Fangaria on 01-07-2014 at 12:00 pm

Gone are the days when analog design had its sweet space on a single chip. However, it’s the main driver in this new electronic world which is geared by Internet-of-Things, wireless, mobile, remote control and so on. How does an electronic device sense a touch by human, motion, temperature, sound etc.? It’s the analog circuitry … Read More

If you have ever send a Request For Quotation (RFQ) for an ASIC including processor IP core, memories, Interfaces IP like PCIe, SATA or USB and Analog function like Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) or Digital to Analog Converter (DAC), you have discovered, like I did a couple of years ago, that these Analog functions may be the key… Read More
