October 2012 – At the Linley Processor conference, we had a chance to talk to Chris Rowen of Tensilica regarding their overall position in second place in the CPU/DSP IP Licensing market with tier licensees shipment of their 2 Billionth IP core. The run rate on the cores – called DPUs for Dataplane Processing Units, [...]

 August 20, 2010—Hot Chips Conference—Stanford, CA. Olav Lindtjorn from Schlumberger talked about “surviving the end of scaling of traditional computers in high-performance computing”. Current computer configurations have run into memory and power walls. An alternative to larger server farms for high-performance computing is to develop a data flow configuration within an FPGA as is outlined [...]
