Someone said "I'm still unclear as to why one would use FPGAs to emulate SoC when the SoC already exists in hardware"
I think it's more a case of when you are designing a new PLC or PAC or SBC for an industrial control application -- if there's already an exuisting SoC (ASIC / ASSP / whatever) that does everything you want then you woudl use it. But if the existing SoC doesn;t do what you want ... it will cost millions of dollars and at least 18 months to develop a new one -- or you can get an off-the-shelf FPGA and program it to do whatever you want it to do...
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
