why xilinx will disrupt itself when new acap chip launches


xilinx (pronounced “zye-links”) is one of those funny-named, specialized companies that makes a cog in data center machinery that is important for efficiency’s sake but that is so melded into the infrastructure that it’s easy to be overlooked.the san jose, calif.-based chipmaker, which makes an item called a field-programmable gate array, or fpga for short, on march 19 announced a new product that it says will eventually supercede what its frontline product already does in an it system.it’s called an adaptive compute acceleration platform (acap), and xilinx claims this proprietary 7nm chip goes far beyond the capabilities of an fpga, which are already in wide use. it’s still vaporware at this point, however, with testing beginning later this year.further readingsetting a context for the ch

nvidia starts week with a boost, but intel stumbles on analyst's new views


score one for nvidia on monday.the chipmaker, best-known for its graphics processors, but which lately has made inroads into the self-driving car and data-center markets, saw its shares climb almost 5 percent, to close monday at $153.70. nvidia got a lift after jefferies analyst mark lipacis raised his price target on nvidia’s stock to $180 a share from $140. he said he believes nvidia will cut into intel’s data-center business. lipacis also increased his target price on chipmaker xilinx to $77 a share from $68.xilinx shares rose almost 3 percent monday, to end the day at $67.18.conversely, intel shares fell 0.7 percent to close at $33.65. lipacis cut his rating on intel’s stock to underperform — which is analyst-speak for sell — from hold, and lowered his price target on intel’s shares to






the matrix voice is an alexa for your raspberry pi


matrix labs just completed a successful crowdfunding campaign for what amounts to an ai voice recognition system for the raspberry pi which allows you, a mere mortal, to make your own alexa in your basement. created by rodolfo saccoman and brian sanchez their first board, the creator, fits right on top of a standard rasppi and gives you an 8 microphone array, a temperature sensor, ultraviolet sensor, pressure sensor, and 3d positioning sensors. the voice is a bit simpler and offers “an open-source voice recognition platform consisting of a 3.14-inches in diameter dev board with a radial array of 7 mems microphones connected to a xilinx spartan6 fpga & 64 mbit sdram with 18 rgbw led’s & 64 gpio pins.” this means you can offer a light show with your voice recognitionthe $99 voice is shipping






matrix voice brings fast and affordable development of voice-controlled iot apps


miami, fl-based venture-backed machine intelligence creation company matrix labs is launching the next open-sourced tool for iot developers. the new hardware, matrix voice, brings development of voice-control apps to the raspberry pi, or the stand alone platform. matrix labs the 64-bit architecture of the voice has voice recognition integration with (32-bit) amazon alexa and google voice. the tool will allow makers and hardware developers to quickly create low cost voice-control apps. the voice board has a radial array of 7 mems microphones which are connected to a xilinx spartan6 fpga + 64 mbit sdram. the microphone array on the voice lets you take advantage of voice recognition in your app creations.it uses services such as microsoft cognitive service, amazon alexa voice service, google






new pci express 4.0 delay may empower next-gen alternatives


image: istock pci express 3.0 is enterprise computing's dominant standard for communication between memory, microprocessors, networking, and storage, but it's facing new competition, as its upcoming major update is underwhelming to some of the most important observers.officials of pci-sig, an industry group that controls the specification, talked about their fourth-generation plans more than five years ago and said version 4.0 would likely arrive by 2015. now, fresh delays, combined with recent trends in big data, internet of things, and mobile computing, are pushing several top it vendors to call for new approaches to data bottlenecks.pcie 4.0, as it's known, will move data at 16 gigatransfers per second—that is double the current version. this can be performed at half or quarter of the
