This year's "EDA/SOPC Technology and Research Seminar" held on November 19, 2011 and organized by Wuhan University's School of Electronic Information and Hubei EDA/SOPC Technology Research Association took off to a grand start! With the goal of raising the level of EDA/SOPC training, improving exchange of technological teaching experience, and promoting further development of research, senior research manager Rosaline Lin from Taiwan's Terasic Technologies was invited to this year's seminar to share her deep experience and laboratory applications in the field of digital television and IC design. The seminar attracted seventy-two professors from thirty-one different universities to participate, hailing from cities such as Jiangsu, Henan, and Hunan.
June 11th 2011 – Following a string of successful design cases, Terasic Technologies has delivered again! As the world’s premier electronics design service provider and manufacturer, Terasic has successfully co-designed and manufactured a complex multi-FPGA electronics support platform for medical imaging.
Running through its eighth consecutive year, InnovateAsia Design Contest 2011 is the premier FPGA design contest to promote student engineer creativity. Organized by Terasic and Altera, and co-sponsored by Agilent, ISSI, Linear Technology, and the Legislation Committee member Fuxing Li, InnovateAsia was held today at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center. The engineering event attracted university students and professors country-wide, where students used Terasic DE2 FPGA Development Boards as learning platforms to realize their amazing projects. Numerous key people attended the event, including Ministry of Economics Representative Mingji Wu, ITRI Director Shaozhong Xu, Ministry of Education Representative Xuezheng Liang, and legislation committee member Fuxing Li. Judges of the event included not only key Terasic engineering managers, but also key members from Altera, ISSI, Agilent, Linear, and ITRI. Judging also took place among visitors, where the audience could vote for their favorite project through voting slips.
Once again, Altera Corporation has awarded Terasic Technologies the Supplier Excellence Award for outstanding service of 2010. Altera Corporation (NASDAQ:ALTR), whose market share and stock price have been growing, introduced a 2011 product roadmap to Terasic after the award ceremony. It is expected that Altera and its long-term partner, Terasic, will work closely and give birth to killer FPGA products of the next generation.
In collaboration with Altera’s University Program, Terasic Technologies has announced the release of Altera’s newest University Program FPGA development board, the DE0-Nano. Measuring just 49 mm by 75.2 mm and weighing about 40 grams, the DE0-Nano board is well-suited to a wide range of portable design projects, such as robotics applications.
Nowadays the whole world is working on high-end multi-layer PCB designs that operate at more than 10Gb/s, with the integration of high-speed circuitry analysis, theories and simulation technique experiences. Thus, American or European companies dominate in such markets. Few Asian companies have the resources to compete with American and European competitors in this niche market. Going along with TSMC, UMC and other large wafer manufacturers that are experiencing rapid breakthroughs in FPGA development, with 90nm quickly shrank all the way down to 28nm, and IO speeds gaining from 10Gb/s up to 30 Gb/s, the market demand for precise FPGA hardware and PCB design is likewise rapidly accelerating.
In recent years, rapid development has occurred in the field of molecular biology, and when coupled with the developments in genomic technologies, massive amounts of data have been discovered. The result is data needs proper and suitable storage, organization, and must be facilitated for further analysis, usage, and search. Along with recent advances in information technology, bioinformatics was born.
As televisions are entering into the age of High Definition Television generation, HDTV can be separated into 720p, 1080i, and 1080p under the ITU (ITU-R BT.709) protocol, where “I” stands for interlaced scanning and p stands for progressive scanning. Under a frequency of 60 Hz, a 1080i HDTV can display 30 complete frames a second, and 1080p can display 60 complete frames per second. Hence, 1080p is the most stable and smooth solution.
Terasic Technologies, the leading provider in high-performance hardware and software solutions, is introducing a new product line with Cypress CapSense Solution. The CapSense Matrix Keypad board is available to be ordered on-line now. This is the first time Terasic is designing with a PSoC solution and stepping into the field of capacitive sensing technology.
