What are Intel’s plans for the future? Let’s take a look at what Intel has already done. It’s certainly moving away from the PC, smartphone, and tablet arena. In 2015, Intel acquired Altera FPGA. While some analysts believe Intel overpaid for the company – paid a record $16.7 billion to complete the acquisition, it was […]Read more "Intel Plans for an FPGA Code Library"
Global Markets Insight released a new report predicting the FPGA market size will reach USD 9.98 billion by the year 2022. In 2014, the FPGA market was valued at USD 5.27 billion. Demand for FPGA will be prevalent in several end-use industries, including data processing, automotive, industrial, and consumer electronics. 1) The biggest demand will […]Read more "Future End-Uses for FPGA-based Devices"
Instead of using copper wires, Optical FPGA rely on fiber optics. What’s the main advantage? There’s a tremendous increase in link distance, performance and bandwidth capability, enabling high-speed communication between products. Back in 2012, Altera Inc. partnered with Avago Technologies to introduce the Optical FPGA. Instead of copper wires, the chip-level circuitry included a laser […]Read more "Optical FPGA: the Next Generation FPGA"
Nallatech has developed a coprocessor card that allows companies to integrate FPGA into any devices or system they are developing. Nallatech’s new coprocessor card can work with Tesla’s GPU accelerators (developed by Nvidia) and the Xeon Phi processors and coprocessors that are developed by Intel. The boards were initially developed for a customer in the […]Read more "An Overview of Nallatech’s 510T Board"
BMW will work with Intel and Mobileye to integrate their technology into the company’s autonomous platform. Compared to other driverless platforms – such as Nvidia’s ‘Drive PX2,’ BMW plans to build an open platform, allowing other companies to use their own expertise to develop their own system for autonomous vehicles. All three companies – BMW, […]Read more "BMW, Intel, and Mobileye to develop autonomous vehicles"
