FPGA/ASIC/DSP

Despite the availability of a range of commodity products, designers often need to turn to custom devices to meet particular needs. But which technology best suits the application? Should you base your design around an FPGA or is it better to use an ASIC? Can you meet your design requirements using a DSP?

In this section, New Electronics brings you the latest developments from the advanced platforms market, looking at how to develop and apply FPGA, ASIC and DSP technology.

Ultra-cool heat sink family

Advanced Thermal Solutions (ATS) is providing a family of ultra-high performance heat sinks for cooling high powered CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs and AI processors.

SLAM Software Development Kit

?CEVA has announced the availability of its CEVA-SLAM software development kit (SDK), aimed at streamlining the development of Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping (SLAM) enabled products.

Concurrent launches 3U VPX system

Concurrent Technologies has launched the SY TR2/525, a 3U VPX development system complete with an 8 or 12-core computing board that has a direct PCI Express link to four slots for additional peripheral boards.

Loopback cards for transceiver test

Samtec has release of the two new VITA 57.4-compliant FMC+ loopback cards. The devices are said to provide FPGA designers with easy to use loopback options for testing low and high speed transceivers on any FPGA development board or carrier card.

Libero SoC v11.8 software provides debugging capabilities

The latest version of Microsemi’s Libero SoC software – version 11.8, a comprehensive suite of FPGA design tools – has been released. In addition to the software release, which includes enhancements such as mixed language simulation, debugging capabilities and a new netlist viewer, the company is also introducing a free evaluation license enabling users to evaluate the company’s flash-based FPGAs and SoC FPGAs.

Digital PoL converter to power FPGAs and ASICs

The OKDL-T/60-W12 from Murata is a 60A, 95 % efficient addition to the OKD family of digitally controlled point of load (PoL) DC/DC converters. The power module is suited for FPGA and processor applications in networking, computing, and telecom systems.
