FPGAs – a 1000x performance increase. How? What? Why? (Espen Tallaksen @NDC, Oslo, 18 June 2015)
|

  An FPGA is programmable hardware and yields an extreme performance for time critical operations. Throughput and latency are magnitudes better than software solutions due to the massive parallelism of real hardware. FPGAs are basically the best of both worlds; … Read More

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (Presented @FPGA-forum 2014)
|

The way you implement your FPGA design and write your code has a huge impact on your development efficiency and product quality. The strange thing is that even many experienced designers tend to write both bad and ugly code. Does … Read More

Improve your VHDL testbench – A practical approach (Presented @FPGA World 2013)
|

Most simple testbenches have close to no structure, are terrible to modify and hopeless to understand. They often take far too much time to implement, and provide close to no support when debugging potential problems. A general solution to this … Read More

Achieving the right FPGA design quality – Could reviews save the day? (Presented @FPGA-forum 2013)
|

Some of the most important quality aspects of an FPGA are: a) Functional quality. Does the FPGA perform its intended tasks – for all corner cases – and with no hiccups? b) Ease of modification. How easy is it to … Read More

Methodology Coordination, – Is it really needed? (Presented @FPGA-forum 2013)
|

Most companies have a strong focus on coordinating company critical processes, like sales, marketing, accountancy, department management, QA, etc. Lots of companies have also understood that project management is equally critical, but why is the development methodology treated so differently? … Read More

Developing an FPGA module with a strong focus on efficiency, quality and modifiability (Presented @FPGA-forum 2012)
|

Many designers and project managers consider efficiency on one hand and quality and modifiability on the other hand to be inverse proportional. In other words improving the quality/modifiability has an efficiency penalty, and improving the efficiency results in lowering the … Read More
