Tabula FPGA Scatters Logic, Memory, and Power Across Space and Time

Here’s a head-scratcher for you. Why not create tesseract FPGAs? A tesseract is the 4-dimensional version of a 3D cube. (Just as a 3D cube can be unfolded to make a set of six connected 2D squares, a tesseract can … Continue reading

Intel cuts IC power by allowing, detecting, and correcting errors

The low-power IC-design train has long ridden the rails of lowered supply voltage. However, these lowered supply rails are tangentially approaching transistor threshold voltages and have long been headed for a serious collision because transistors in large, nanometer ICs run … Continue reading
