No Mistakes are Not Going to Happen. Logic Synthesis and Debugging Smart Technologies The reason that FPGA can’t be synthesized or don’t work as expected may not appear. Among thousands RTL instruction files and constraints (that maybe were created by other engineers) it is extremely hard to find an error. Taking into account the complex FPGA projects iterations length designers must have the opportunity to find and remove errors at the project initiatory stage and give more attention to FPGAs verification.
Working with FPGAs in Altium Designer. Functional Simulation When programming FPGAs it’s necessary to take into account the PCB layout because a large number of modern FPGA’s leads make PCB pinout difficult. Aside from that during the development process assignment of leads can change. Altium Designer CAD permits to create FPGA projects as a part of PCB projects, maintain their communication and use FPGA producer programs.
Nonvolatile Memory Made from This, That and Something Else. Adapted from IEDM 2012 and ISSCC 2013 proceedings This article considers creation conceptions of new memory cells and completely integrated memory systems as well as their production problems. Particular attention is given to such NAND flesh alternatives as new NVM generations. But maybe the most advanced displacement of modern NAND flesh will become 3D flesh.
Programmable Logic. Actel and Atmel won’t Disgrace their Positions Application specific ICs allow to realize computer warfare that is suited to solve designer’s problems. But extension of systems on the basis of such ICs designing terms and designing and production cost escalation don’t satisfy designers. That’s why an ASIC alternative FPGA that the designers receive not preset and that permits them to realize a desired architecture is interesting.
Xilinx’s FPGA. How to “sew” It? What kind of equipment do you need to configure or program Xilinx’s FPGA? An experienced engineer without difficulty can himself put together a feeding cable that could be connected to the computer LPT-port. But creating a cable to connect an USB interface will require much more time and effort. LDM-SYSTEMS offers finished feeding cables for FPGA interfaces at a reasonable price.
Milandr’s MCUs for FPGA Programming ARM Cortex-M core MCUs today are popular. Cortex-M MCUs that can used for in-system FPGA programming are produced in Russia by company Milandr. This article considers how to most efficient organize Xilinx’s FPGAs MCUs programming.
Analog СMOSFET switches. Selection Guide. Part 1 Today you can find a lot of diverse analog switches at the market. That’s why there are many figures of merit that the designer must take into account. This article considers the basic guidelines for standard analog СMOSFET switches construction and some of their parameters. The analog switches ICs refinement is also discussed.
DiTom Microwave’s RF and Microwave Circulators and Gates DiTom Microwave has a noticeable state in the area of RF and microwave circulators and gates design and production. It produces high quality coaxial ferrite circulators and gates working in the band from 100 MHz to 40 GHz.
Meggitt’s Sensors. Working 150 Years in Extreme Conditions. Part 2 We continue to announce sensors of Meggitt companies group and their applications that permit to solve manufacturing and science investigation problems that often occur in electrical energy and mechanical engineering industries.
Rohde & Schwarz Oscillograph RTO Programming I/Q Interface. A Powerful Tool for Analyzing Signals Quadrature modulation (I/Q-modulation) is a widely used type of analog and digital signals modulation. Rohde & Schwarz oscillograph RTO provides effective analysis of such signals. Its special option programming I/Q interface RTO-K11 permits the user to accept and analyze I/Q signals among them in MATLAB’s MathWorks media.
АКИП Bipolar Power Supplies as an Effective Instrument for Production and Research Power supplies are an important element of industrial test systems electronic equipment. But ordinary power supplies often can’t simply support real current/voltage metering values. For this high speed supplies with output signals high resolution, low noise and different electrical polarity are required. These requirements satisfy TOELLNER’s (Germany) new devices АКИП-1106 and АКИП-1106A.
Delta Elektronika B.V. Laboratory Power Supplies. Product Survey The article considers products of one of the leading professional power supplies manufacturers –Delta Elektronika B.V. (Netherlands). Namely laboratory power supplies.
Manufacturing MEMS Sensors by Plasma Etch Chemistry Technology Thanks to various constructions and purposes MEMS on the wings of wind are entering our daily life. It can be said that MEMS could be represented as a lot of microdevices of different constructions and applications that are manufactured by updated microelectronics technology.
