Do you ever feel like you are herding cats? A lot of FPGA designs are huge and getting bigger. In addition, they include IP, both in RTL and encrypted formats, and also embedded software. A typical design can be derived not only from 1000’s of RTL source files, but also vendor IP, some in object format or encrypted RTL, and … Read More
In Partnership with: As electronic systems become ever more pervasive the environments in which they operate are becoming increasingly complex often calling for demonstrable compliance to safety and security standards. Whilst representing significant opportunities, developers are aware they need to overcome significant V&V (validation and verification) challenges where the complexity of the environment and the potential for unexpected emergent behaviours … Read More
RF wireless systems and solutions are important and high growth technologies that have a wide range of applications in key sectors such as communications, defence, consumer and transport. In particular, the increased demand in Machine-to-Machine (M2M) RF wireless communications for wide bandwidth, high power, tuneable and flexible systems in RF is a key business driver. This in turn is pushing … Read More
Progress in wide bandgap semiconductors is opening up significant market opportunities in high performance electronic systems. However, to ensure maximum performance impact, this is creating significant challenges and opportunities in system design and integration that affects the entire value chain. At the same time, the application of systems thinking to high performance silicon-based systems are also developing at a rapid … Read More
In this day and age when businesses are coming under continuous pressure to reduce costs, investing in the workforce remains one of the most effective ways to do this. By using our people more effectively, we are able to have a more efficient business.
We looked at how companies in the UK & Ireland have built upon the strengths of their workforce to enhance their businesses.
Moore’s Law reaches its 50th anniversary in this year and with Finfet technologies and some advances in the wafer processing capabilities it looks set to continue for some years. However there is a growing recognition that the dynamic in the industry is changing and that Moore’s law is important to fewer and fewer players and no longer can you be … Read More
Do you worry about choosing the correct route to market for your system? Standard components, embedded microcontroller, FPGA or ASIC ? Do you feel you don’t have sufficient information to make a well-informed decision and as such, you may be compromising your final solution ? This workshop will present a balanced set of arguments for several routes, the goal being … Read More
