by Bernard Murphy (*)  Deep learning, modeled (loosely) on the way living neurons interact, has achieved amazing success in automating recognition tasks, from recognizing images more accurately in some cases than we or even experts can, to recognizing speech and written text. The engineering behind this technology revolution continues to advance at a blistering pace, so … Continue reading How Deep Learning Works, Maybe

VHDL is a strong typed language. It is also a language which has quite a long history. These two facts together make handling of signed and unsigned numbers quite confusing. Even today I see lots of code examples with incorrect treatment of signed and unsigned arithmetic. Part of the history of the VHDL language is … Continue reading Signed, unsigned and std_logic_vector
