Accelerating FPGA design with new software
Lattice Semiconductor has announced the availability of the latest version of its popular software design tool for FPGAs, Lattice Radiant 2.0. In addition to adding support for higher density devices like the new CrossLink-NX FPGA family, the updated design tool also offers new features that make it faster and easier than ever to develop Lattice FPGA-based designs.
FPGAs designed to support Intel Ultra Path Interconnect
Intel has announced shipments of new Intel Stratix 10 DX field programmable gate arrays (FPGA). The new FPGAs are designed to support Intel Ultra Path Interconnect (Intel UPI), PCI-Express (PCIe) Gen4 x16, and a new controller for Intel Optane memory to provide flexible, high performance acceleration. VMware is one of many early access program participants.
Dual FMC+ Carrier with Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ FPGA
VadaTech has announced the AMC560. The AMC560 is an AMC FPGA Carrier with dual FMC+ (VITA 57.4) interfaces and is compliant to AMC.1, AMC.2, AMC.3 and AMC.4 specifications. The unit has a Xilinx UltraScale+ XCZU19EG MPSoC FPGA that provides 1,968 DSP Slices and 1,143k logic cells.
ASIC design prototype time cut with automatic partitioning tool
Aldec has introduced automatic FPGA partitioning to its popular HES-DVM; the company’s fully automated and scalable hybrid verification environment for SoC and ASIC designs. Traditionally, the manual partitioning of multiple FPGAs used for prototyping can take days, or even weeks, whereas the automation in HES-DVM can perform the task in minutes; ideal for exploratory, What-If scenarios.
Software radio board with backplane optical added to FPGAs
Pentek has introduced the newest member of the Jade family of high-performance 3U VPX boards. The Model 54821 is based on the Xilinx Kintex Ultrascale FPGA and features three 200 MHz 16-bit A/Ds with three programmable multiband digital downconverters (DDCs) and one digital upconverter (DUC) with two 800 MHz 16-bit D/As.
FPGAs enhance video bridging for MIPI-based embedded vision systems
Lattice Semiconductor has introduced the CrossLinkPlus FPGA family for MIPI D-PHY based embedded vision systems. CrossLinkPlus devices are innovative, low power FPGAs featuring integrated flash memory, a hardened MIPI D-PHY and high-speed I/Os for instant-on panel display performance, and flexible on-device programming capabilities.
Multiprocessor SoCs come in three distinct variants
In stock at Mouser Electronics are the Zynq UltraScale multiprocessor system-on-chips (MPSoCs) from Xilinx. These devices combine a high-performance Arm-based multicore, multiprocessing system with ASIC-class programmable logic.
Software infuses AI into high-performance computing
Simplifying the infusion of AI into high-performance computing is the purpose of Arrow Electronics using a new software platform ready to run on the BittWare 385A FPGA accelerator card. Arrow’s engineering team has created ready-to-use software modules in OpenCL that help users build custom engines for compute-intensive workloads in applications such as image processing and facial recognition.
Competition set to attract savvy FPGA developers
A competition to find the most innovative and imaginative FPGA-based designs in Europe has been launched by Arrow Electronics. To encourage a wide participation, Arrow is offering a development board free-of-charge to each entrant who submits a verified project plan.
Intel ships first 10nm Agilex FPGAs
Intel today announced that it has begun shipments of the first Intel Agilex field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) to early access program customers. Participants in the early access program include Colorado Engineering, Inc., Mantaro Networks, Microsoft and Silicom. These customers are using Agilex FPGAs to develop advanced solutions for networking, 5G and accelerated data analytics.
