Prototyping of ARM Cortex-M Processor systems in FPGA

ARM has released a new FPGA board called Cortex-M Prototyping System. With a size of ~150K LE, the Cyclone V FPGA is more than enough for creating most Cortex-M systems (for instance, a full feature Cortex-M4 system with a collection of peripherals can easily fit into a FPGA with 50K LE). The Cyclone V FPGA also support FPGA image encryption, which help protecting your IP.

Three Huge Applications Accelerated by World’s Most Powerful Graphics Chip

Weather forecasting. Tracking billions of tweets. Mitigating big-time financial risks. These burly applications gobble up computing power like an NFL linebacker plowing through a box of Ding Dongs.

So when we tore the lid off the supercharged Tesla K40 GPU accelerator - the highest-performance GPU ever built - our customers quickly put it to work tackling some of their toughest problems. And their initial results show this GPU is even better than advertised.

Global Warming “Denial” Hits a 6 Year High, Study Cries

Is the media conspiring to stoke alarmism or deny science? Shrill voices on each side can't decide.

When many temperature studies, including studies presented by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, indicate current global temperatures are cooler than the vast majority of the past 4,000 years, and then an outlier study with quickly identified serious flaws claims exactly the opposite,...

A single breathless report of impending global warming doom is going to rope in more viewers and readers than a whole collection of reports explaining that current temperatures are actually quite cool in historical perspective.

...it is no secret that the media drifts left on many issues, and drifts left on environmental issues in particular.

The Cybersecurity Canon: Reamde

For the past decade, I have had this notion that there must be a Cybersecurity Canon: a list of must-read books where the content is timeless, genuinely represents an aspect of the community that is true and precise and that, if not read, leaves a hole in cybersecurity professional’s education.

  • Embedded Processor Selection Using FPGA-based Profiling
    Fadi Obeidat* and Robert H. Klenke**
    * Intel Corporation, Austin, TX, USA
    ** Virginia Commonwealth University, Virginia, USA


    In embedded systems, modeling the performance of off-the-shelf processors is very important to enable the designer to estimate the capability of each candidate processor against the target application. Considering the large number of available embedded processors, the need has increased for building an infrastructure by which it is possible to estimate the performance of a given application on a certain processor with a minimum of time and resources. This paper presents the use a Xilinx MicroBlaze softcore processor ...
