Innovative Integration announced the ePC-K7 user-customizable, turnkey embedded instrument. The ePC-K7 embedded computer is a full Windows/Linux PC. It supports programmable Kintex 7 325/410 and Spartan 6 FPGAs and a wide variety of FMC modules. The ePC-K7 features a modular IO, scalable performance, and easy to use PC architecture. The embedded system reduces time-to-market.
Barco Silex released the multi-channel Video over IP with JPEG 2000 reference design. The VoIP reference design integrates the BarcoSilex JPEG 2000 Encoder and Decoder IP Cores, the Barco Silex high-performance memory controller core, and the Xilinx SMPTE 2022-1/2 and Ethernet MAC LogiCORE IP Cores for Xilinx 7 Series FPGAs and Zynq All Programmable SoC.
Altera is offering several free online technical training courses. The educational classes help designers stay up to date on the latest FPGA products, features, and design techniques. Engineers can learn the recommended debug methodology and analysis techniques and how to use the latest debugging tools. Topics cover include debug, timing analysis and closure.
Analog Devices, Xilinx, MathWorks and Avnet Electronics Marketing are teaming together at the ADI Design Conference. The virtual event will give analog, mixed-signal and embedded systems engineers the opportunity to learn from leading, high-performance signal processing industry experts. The online conference will take place from 12 pm to 5 pm EDT with a live keynote speaker and interactive Q&A sessions.
ASSET InterTech published a new ebook about the pros and cons of several different methods for programming memory devices connected to the Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) bus. Each method takes advantage of a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) that is already on the board for functional purposes. The title of the technical article is At-Speed SPI Flash/EEPROM Programming Using FPGA and JTAG.
Xilinx introduced their All Programmable Abstractions initiative. Xilinx All Programmable Abstractions improve productivity of hardware designers and help systems and software developers to directly leverage All Programmable FPGA, SoCs, and 3D ICs. Xilinx and its ecosystem Alliance members now support a combination of software, model, platform, and IP-based design environments.
Altera and Micron Technology have successfully demonstrated interoperability between Altera Stratix V FPGAs and Micron’s Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC). This technology achievement enables system designers to evaluate today the benefits of HMC with FPGAs and SoCs for next-generation communications and high-performance computing designs. The demonstration provides an early proof point that production support of HMC will be delivered with Altera’s Generation 10 portfolio — includes both Stratix 10 and Arria 10 FPGAs and SoCs.
