Frost and Sullivan 2020 Award Achronix

FPGAs have played an important role in the growth of key markets, including networking, storage, mobile devices, etc. They offer a unique set of capabilities that ASICs, CPUs and GPUs find hard to match. FPGAs are wire-speed, programmable integrated circuits that accelerate data and applications.  The ability to reprogram … Read More


In-Chip Monitoring Helps Manage Data Center Power

In-Chip Monitoring Helps Manage Data Center Power

in-chip sensing

Designers spend plenty of time analyzing the effects of process, voltage and temperature. But everyone knows it’s not enough to simply stop there. Operating environments are tough and have lots of limitations, especially when it comes to power consumption and thermal issues. Thermal protection and even over-voltage protections… Read More


Talking Sense With Moortec … Ask Yourself a “Probing” Question?

Talking Sense With Moortec … Ask Yourself a “Probing” Question?
by Ramsay Allen on 07-16-2020 at 10:00 am

Managing and controlling thermal conditions in-chip is nothing new and embedded temperature monitoring has been going on for many years. What is changing however, is the granularity and accuracy of the sensing now available to SoC design teams. Thermal activity can be quite destructive and if not sufficiently monitored can … Read More

Achronix Announces New Accelerator Card at Linley Fall Processor Conference – VectorPath
by Randy Smith on 11-04-2019 at 10:00 am

This blog is my second blog from this year’s Linley Fall Processor Conference. The first two blogs focused on edge inference solutions. Achronix’s discussion was much broader than just AI/ML; it was about where FPGA’s have been going and culminated with a product announcement preview. I’ll get to the announcement in a moment, … Read More


Data Centers and AI Chips Benefit from Embedded In-Chip Monitoring

Data Centers and AI Chips Benefit from Embedded In-Chip Monitoring
by Daniel Payne on 03-08-2019 at 12:00 pm

Webinars are a quick way to come up to speed with emerging trends in our semiconductor world, so I just finished watching an interesting one from Moortec about the benefits of embedded in-chip monitoring for Data Center and AIchip design. My first exposure to a data center was back in the 1960s during an elementary school class where… Read More

On the heels of successful seminars in Tokyo and Shanghai, eSilicon is starting the new year back in the cloud with a webinar version of the live events for those, like myself, who could not attend. The webinar will compress the 3 hour live event into 60 minutes which will provide a great place to start a conversation on your next chip… Read More


HW Emulator Apps Open Doors to Entirely New Uses

HW Emulator Apps Open Doors to Entirely New Uses
by Tom Simon on 02-28-2016 at 7:00 am

When the topic of hardware emulation comes up, thoughts of big iron customarily come to mind. However, hardware emulation has evolved significantly and now there are other important traits that distinguish the offerings in this area. For a very long period of time emulators provided primarily a method to accelerate gate level… Read More


Qualcomm goes in Data Center thanks to Google

Qualcomm goes in Data Center thanks to Google
by Eric Esteve on 02-05-2016 at 12:00 pm

The Server SoC at the heart of Data Center almost don’t care about power consumption, at the opposite of Application Processors for smartphone. If you design a server multi-core SoC, you target the highest performance, in fact a combination of high frequency and lowest possible latency, and try to pack as many CPU core and embedded… Read More


5 Verification Challenges of IoT Solved by Emulation

5 Verification Challenges of IoT Solved by Emulation
by Pawan Fangaria on 12-09-2015 at 4:00 pm

Software-centric Emulation environment takes the forefront in modern SoC verification. As more and more devices are IoT enabled, the SoCs have to make special provisions to factor many things including communication, power usage, and network switching, and so on. Also, the demand for an SoC (specifically for smartphone which… Read More
