Open-source hardware, in-field configurability, and a hardware-plus-services approach could protect margins as the IoT hammers down costs, says GSA report.
...and why the semiconductor industry hasn't been singularitied down to one MegaSemis Inc even if that's what M&A data suggests.
Altera is using a combination of Intel's 14nm process technology and multidie packaging to boost the logic-cell count for its FPGAs, together with a superpipelining strategy to help balance area and clock speed.
Dennard’s Scaling ended years ago and Moore’s Law is slowing down. What will the future hold for the semiconductor industry?
Altera has agreed to Intel's offer to buy the company, with FPGAs to be integrated into Xeon processors after 2016. Atoms will join programmable logic in IoT-oriented devices.
Altera is revamping the Quartus II software for its FPGAs with a mapping and synthesis engine aimed at the upcoming Gen 10 products, as well as adding a C/C++ front-end for system-level design.
Altera has moved to a 55nm embedded flash process to continue its Max series of non-volatile FPGAs.
Design for the 20nm generation of processes has revealed power and clocking issues for the two major FPGA manufacturers presentations at Hot Chips revealed.
Altera has revealed that the DSP blocks in the Arria 10 FPGAs contain the logic needed to make them work as IEEE754-compliant floating-point units.
Deal quashes rumors that Altera was about to move its cutting edge production back to TSMC, but nor does it appear to be 'exclusive' for 3D products.
