Cyclone V GX Starter kit – HW LED flasher

The first in the projects for the Cyclone V GX Starter kit will be a HW LED flasher. Although the design is very easy, it is a complete design including absolutely all the elements needed to achieve a reliable design with timing closure. For an introduction about the Cyclone V GX Starter kit evaluation board, … Continue reading Cyclone V GX Starter kit – HW LED flasher

SoC FPGA for IoT Edge Computing

One of the reasons for the explosive growth of IoT is that embedded devices with networking capabilities and sensor interfaces are cheap enough to deploy them at a plethora of locations. However, network bandwidth is limited. Not only that, but also, the latency of the network can be of seconds or minutes. By the time … Continue reading SoC FPGA for IoT Edge Computing

FPGAs and Deep Machine Learning

The concept of machine learning is not new. Attempts at systems emulating intelligent behavior, like expert systems, go as far back as the early 1980's. And the very notion of modern Artificial Intelligence has a long history. The name itself was coined at a Dartmouth College conference (1956), but the idea of an "electronic brain" was … Continue reading FPGAs and Deep Machine Learning

Stratix 10MX – High memory bandwidth on SiP package

  The Stratix® 10 MX DRAM system-in-package (SiP) family combines a 1 GHz high-performance monolithic FPGA fabric, state-of-the-art Intel Embedded Multi-die Interconnect Bridge (EMIB) technology, and High Bandwidth Memory 2 (HBM2), all in a single package (SiP). The blue DRAM boxes (A), show the HBM2 memory tiles that the device integrates in package (up to … Continue reading Stratix 10MX – High memory bandwidth on SiP package

Intel announces Xeon processor with FPGA accelerator

Last year (December 2015), Intel completed the acquisition of Altera. As a result of this acquisition, the integration of processor and FPGA on a single chip is finally becoming a reality. Intel envisions many applications for this combination of processor and FPGA. The FPGA will fulfill accelerator tasks, either by static configuration or dynamic reconfiguration. … Continue reading Intel announces Xeon processor with FPGA accelerator
