In the first part of this blog (read here) we already figured out ways to optimize costs when switching from an FPGA to an ASIC-based design is an option. However, we also had to admit that there are still a large number of companies that will not hit a level of production volume that makes this decision easy. Now, we’ll introduce you to a game-changing Toshiba innovation that could make this decision a no-brainer! Simplify ASIC Development Starting Your Project With Innovative Technologies Due to the circumstance that transforming anRead More
Transforming an FPGA into an ASIC is associated with high development cost and time. In many cases the lower unit price of ASIC-based designs still does not justify the higher development efforts. Therefore, designing an application specific chip is usually only rewarding for high volume production. However, there are strategies to minimize the NRE (non-recurring expenses) for ASICs as well as innovative technologies like Toshiba’s FFSA™ that dramatically increase the benefits of ASICs even in low to medium volume production. ASIC Development Costs Can Be Influenced From Scratch Consider thisRead More
Have you ever driven your car with your eyes shut? Probably not. In order to perform certain tasks we heavily rely on our vision. We see, analyse, understand and decide based on the data our eyes deliver. In a time in which we want to design applications which can help us to simplify our life and make tasks like driving our cars easier we have to think about how to enable electronic devices to see. A blind self-driving car would be scary, right? Image processing technology and machine vision enableRead More

4 Reasons Why You Should Attend The ASDF!

There are tons of events in our industry which want you to attend and try to capture you with everything from free development kits to knowledge “you won’t get anywhere else”. With tight schedules and every information already uploaded to the internet it can be hard to choose an event or to justify why you should take the effort and travel to a venue. We can certainly feel you. However there are some happenings which are real game changers – here is one of them: The Altera SoC Developers Forum (ASDF),Read More
