3D graphics application is FASTER

STMicroelectronics has tested and validated an experimental 3D-graphics application based on ray-tracing technology that had been implemented on an ARM-processor-based test chip attached to an FPGA. The effort for ‘Facilitating Analysis and Synthesis Technologies For Effective Reconfiguation’ (FASTER), which was partially funded by the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7 IC T 287804), was performed as part of a tight R&D cooperation with Politecnico di Milano and the Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas.

Software suite reduces 5G system design time

Software suite reduces 5G system design time
NI has developed the LabVIEW Communications System Design Suite to cut the time to produce a 5G system prototype by half. The suite combines software defined radio (SDR) hardware with a comprehensive software design flow. Wireless prototyping was previously undertaken by separate design teams using disparate design tools. The LabVIEW Communications environment enables the entire design team to map an idea from algorithm to FPGA using a single high-level representation.
