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.
Deep learning offers the next major opportunity for specialist processors, Qualcomm's Karim Arabi claimed in his keynote at Mentor Graphics’ U2U in San Jose.
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.
National Instruments has developed a kernel for Spice analog simulations that can be downloaded for faster performance on the FPGAs inside CompactRIO hardware.
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.
Altera will add a quad-core 64bit ARM processor complex to the Stratix 10 family of high-end FPGAs that will be made on Intel's 14nm finFET process.
Xilinx aims to be first of the FPGA makers to produce 20nm devices, expecting to move to production samples for some products by the end of the year.
Design security is a major target for Microsemi’s update to its Igloo series of flash memory-based FPGAs, which add an ARM-oriented memory subsystem.
