Intel's acquisition of FPGA-maker Altera completed - News

December 28, 2015
SANTA CLARA, California. Intel Corp. officials announced today that the company completed its acquisition of FPGA-maker Altera Corp., which will now operate as an Intel business unit dubbed the Programmable Solutions Group (PSG). Altera's FPGAs are used by military systems designers in electronic warfare, radar, and other signal-processing intensive applications.

Designing a 2 million-point frequency domain filter using OpenCL for FPGA - Story

June 19, 2015
Fast Fourier transform (FFT) is the backbone of signal processing applications. For a long time now, FPGA vendors have been providing well-tuned FFT libraries to process data sets that fit in FPGA on-chip memory. But what do you do if your data set is too large? To solve this problem, the FPGA designer must now make multiple intertwined design decisions, such as considering on-chip FFT core configuration options, how many to include, how they connect and access external memory, synchronization among multiple cores, and many others. Exploring all such design decisions to create the perfect combination for the product at hand while coding in HDL is just too time-consuming and can actually leave performance on the table. With a higher level programming language such as OpenCL, however, system design exploration can be done in days.

SAN JOSE, Calif. The product and architectural details was released of Altera’s Stratix 10 FPGAs and SoCs, the programmable logic devices that deliver performance, integration, density, and security.

Security value of processor-driven configuration for FPGA-SoCs - Blog

June 01, 2015
With the massive increase in content and IP options made available in the modern field programmable gate array (FPGA) system-on-chip (SoC) device, the last true frontier in flexibility is the configuration process itself. Expect to see next-generation FPGA SoCs that make this flexibility in security, configuration times, and single-event upset (SEU) responses a reality.

Smaller form factors benefit electronic warfare applications - Story

April 28, 2015
Small form factor (SFF) requirements continue to drive higher-performance computing platforms in electronic warfare (EW) and other signal-processing intensive applications year after year as there is an insatiable need for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR). Airborne EW is a critical component of the military's overall EW strategy and almost all approaches desire more computational performance while reducing size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C) as more capabilities are added.

Video surveillance chipset does reality TV in HD - Product

So your iPhone 4 records in HD at 720p. So does the Cisco Flip camera (which, by the way, just went obsolete as we went to press).

FPGAs balance architecture, IP, power in electro-optical/infrared systems - Story

May 23, 2010
Modern Electro-Optical/Infrared (EO/IR) systems have become increasingly and exceedingly complex, and therefore demand processing capabilities best offered by FPGAs. The most critical design challenge in these systems is that of combining high-performance sensor/video processing with low power consumption. To help solve this dilemma, key sensor-processing and video-processing algorithms - and how they can be implemented on FPGAs - are presented.
