Embracing open source hardware

Embracing open source hardware
The impact open source hardware has had in the past year has been momentous. Educators, students and hobbyists have all traditionally been big proponents of open-source hardware, but in the last 12 months we finally saw large companies and professional engineers begin to openly embrace the open source movement as well.

Prototyping tool speeds time-to-market

A prototyping tool which speeds time-to-market, has been introduced by Cadence. Protium is an expansion of the Cadence Palladium XP II suite. Built using Xilinx Virtex-7 2000T FPGAs, the prototyping tool provides automated memory compilation, external bulk memory support, and RTL name preservation throughout the flow, which minimises FPGA bring-up steps, thereby speeding up time-to-market.
