If I ask the question, “What has grown 4,000x over the last twenty-five years?”, most people will start throwing names of some stocks. Although various stock markets have had crazy run ups and yes, there is a stock that has grown 2,500x over that period of time, the answer to the 4,000x question is not a stock. What if I modify the question… Read More
I had a chance to preview the subject webinar recently. Yes, it’s a long title, but a very important topic. When it comes to hyper-scale data centers, there are substantial challenges associate with thermal management, power distribution and processing performance. Moortec explores approaches to these issues using their … Read More
If you are designing high-performance computing and networking SoCs for hyperscale data centers, then you require IP that enables large amounts of data to travel at very fast rates.
Whether the IP is for true long reach or very short-reach die-to-die connectivity in multi-chip modules (MCMs), you must consider several essential… Read More
To run the real-world workloads on cycle-accurate hardware simulation framework is one of the essential tasks in the system-level validation before silicon tape-out. S2C introduced Prodigy Cloud System recently in the response to meet challenging targets.
It is equipped with scalable FPGA capacity using the largest FPGA … Read More
S2C has been developing FPGA prototyping platforms since 2003, and, over time, their FPGA prototyping platforms have supported increasingly larger more sophisticated FPGA prototyping projects with three key attributes; 1) scalable prototyping gate capacities, 2) a high-speed interface between the FPGA prototype and software… Read More
I recently had the pleasure of attending the AI Hardware Summit at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA. This two-day conference brought together many companies involved in building artificial intelligence solutions. Though the focus was on building the hardware for this area, there was naturally much discussion… Read More
In case you worry that IBM will abandon hardware in the pursuit of its strategic initiatives focusing on cloud, mobile, analytics and more; well, stop worrying. With the announcement of its POWER Roadmap at the OpenPOWER Summitearlier this spring, it appears POWER will be around for years to come. But IBM is not abandoning the strategic… Read More
