Building Multipurpose Systems With Dynamic Function Exchange


One of the most-common oversights that designers can make is to not fully use available system resources. Typically, design and optimization efforts are focused on performance and efficiency. Mission-critical and real-time tasks are allocated hardware-based resources to accelerate their execution. But when large portions of the architecture are underutilized – in other words, they remain idle... » read more

Innovative Technology Drives Rapid Deployment Of New 5G Products, Services, And Business Models


The wireless future is about developing the most compelling products using a combination of advanced technologies to maximize system performance, while optimizing both cost and power. Doing so will unlock deployment of new 5G products and services for mobile operators and the whole 5G ecosystem, from businesses to consumers to the economy. With 5G offering so much potential, how can the industr... » read more

Solving Real World AI Productization Challenges With Adaptive Computing


The field of artificial intelligence (AI) moves swiftly, with the pace of innovation only accelerating. While the software industry has been successful in deploying AI in production, the hardware industry – including automotive, industrial, and smart retail – is still in its infancy in terms of AI productization. Major gaps still exist that hinder AI algorithm proof-of-concepts (PoC) from b... » read more

AV-Over-IP: Decisions, Decisions…


By Rob Green and Andrew Starks You know it’s coming, and you need to be ready for it, but the path to supporting AV-over-IP in your next generation product is still really confusing and choosing a particular protocol implementation feels like a gamble that you just can’t afford to lose! It’s clear that the benefits of moving to IP-based transport for audio, video, and associated dat... » read more

Accelerating 5G Baseband With Adaptive SoCs: Part II


In my previous blog, we discussed 5G split architectures with focus on the widely adopted option 7-2 split. In this article, we will cover the implementation of the fronthaul and L1 Hi-PHY for 5G base stations. The 5G distributed unit (DU) can be implemented to process fronthaul data with O-RAN processing and partial offload for Hi-PHY processing which includes the LDPC encoder, LDPC decoder an... » read more

Accelerating 5G Baseband With Adaptive SoCs


5G new radio (NR) network specifications demand new architectures for radio and access networks. While the 5G NR architecture includes new spectrum and massive MIMO (mMIMO) antennas, corresponding access networks architecture must also evolve to implement the services defined by 5G, which include enhanced Mobile Broadband, Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communications and massive Machine Type Commu... » read more

The Rise Of SmartNICs


Network interface cards (NICs) have been on the market since shortly after the first PCs in the mid-1980s. However, over the past few years, we’ve seen the emergence of SmartNICs. What is a SmartNIC? The most basic definition of a SmartNIC is simply a programmable NIC. Others have overloaded the concept by heaping vast amounts of silicon and firmware into their implementations. A good work... » read more

Greetings From Mars


Hello Mars. Congratulations to the amazing engineers and scientists at NASA and Jet Propulsion Labs (JPL) for a successful touchdown on the Mars Jezero Crater. In July 2020, NASA launched the Perseverance rover mission, which sought to find signs of habitable conditions, search for biosignatures, and collect samples for future Mars-sample-return missions and human expeditions. Seven months l... » read more

Virtualizing FPGAs For Multiple Cloud Users


Cloud computing has become the new computing paradigm. For cloud computing, virtualization is necessary to enable isolation between users, high flexibility and scalability, high security, and maximized utilization of hardware resources. Since 2017, because of the advantages of programmability, low latency, and high energy efficiency, FPGA has been widely adopted into cloud computing. Amazon ... » read more

2021 Trends For Data Centers, AI, And More


Previously, we took out our crystal ball and looked at some of the trends, technologies and changes that we expect to be embraced by the auto industry in 2021. Today, we are shining a light on technologies and trends that we predict will have a significant impact on the 5G, data center, AI and software, healthcare, and IIoT markets this year and beyond. For wired and wireless networking eq... » read more
