1) Diagnostic imaging

FPGA are major hardware pieces in vital healthcare equipment. When the word diagnostic imaging is mentioned, some of the first things that should come to your mind are X-ray scans, ultrasounds, PET, CT, and MRI scans.

Data acquisition cards are used to acquire the input, and then these are sent along to processing, where filtering and algorithmic processing enable image reconstruction.

Altera's Stratix V family are ideal FPGA for diagnostic imaging applications.

5 Applications of Xilinx's Ultrascale FPGA Family

Posted by Nadeesha Thewarapperuma

Mar 30, 2017 11:09:59 AM

Xilinx has used Ultrascale FPGA for the following applications:

1) 256 Channel Ultrasound. Xilinx's Kintex Ultrascale FPGA are used for ultrasound applications, specifically to lend a higher resolution and depth to the picture quality produced. This is essential when it comes to detecting and identifying any issues.

2) Kintex Ultrascale are also used in radio applications. The advantage is that the application supports a low power environment. Plus the chips can be programmed to meet the bandwidth, frequency, and standards for multiple regions.

3) Virtex Ultrascale FPGA are used in next generation Optical Transport Networks (OTN) transition to 400G. Use of a high-end FPGA enables the transfer of massive data flows, reduced latency, power reduction, and logic resource saving.

4) Automotive Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). The ultrascale range has the ability to crunch through and process real-time video feeds, enabling split-second decisions to be made from the AI control center.

5) Broadcast applications. The range is suited for transferring large data feeds, keeping the quality of the data intact and not allowing for any losses due to latency.

By relying on the Kintex Ultrascale or Virtext Ultrascale range, PCB manufacturers gain certain advantages:

  • Power savings
  • Ability to remove traditional memory bottlenecks which may slow down certain processes.
  • A reduction in PCB real estate
  • Faster time to market.
  • Fast processing speeds
  • Reprogrammability and flexibility when it comes to the design.

5 Tips for Riding out a Supply Chain Disruption

Posted by Nadeesha Thewarapperuma

     Within the past twenty years, the advent of globalization has allowed many tech companies to spread their roots and reach out to the far corners of the world, often locating to regions that are rapidly churning through different technological advancements. While globalizations has smoothed over the business of carrying out an international sales transactions, it has its own issues as well. Globalization means that a problem that's taking place in one corner of the world will have a direct impact elsewhere.

     Take a look at what's happening in South Korea this week. South Korean judges have ruled to uphold a parliamentry decision that called for leader Park Geun-hye's resignation. The scandal has been going on for a long time, but now that a decision has been reached, one can only determine how it will affect the global market. After all, South Korea is home to one of the biggest tech companies in the world, Samsung.

     The repercussions from the US election are still being felt. Donald Trump has instigated certain travel bans, prompting worried tech companies to recall all non-US employees who were travelling overseas. Yes, Google did this.
