In 2016 SemiWiki published a book “Prototypical: The Emergence of FPGA-Based Prototyping for SoC Design”. Today we are writing Prototypical II since a LOT of prototyping innovation has happened in the last four years, absolutely.

For example:

Quad 10M Prodigy™ Logic System extends the capacity leadership to simplifyRead More

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


Ten Things to see @ 56th DAC!

Ten Things to see @ 56th DAC!
by Daniel Nenni on 06-01-2019 at 8:00 am

New products always take precedence since EDA is a “mature” market. I have inside knowledge on this one so I can tell you it is not to be missed. Coincidently, but not really, a related white paper was just published so if you are not going to 56thDAC you can still get a virtual briefing. If you are going to DAC be sure and stop by the Fractal… Read More

Rapid Prototyping ARM Based Designs Webinar
by Daniel Nenni on 01-07-2019 at 7:00 am

While writing the definitive book on ARM history we could not have imagined a more different exit than the SoftBank acquisition, not even close. It is now very clear why SoftBank acquired ARM for $31B. It is also very clear why alternatives like RISC-V are trending on SemiWiki and will continue to do so, absolutely. No matter what … Read More
