App note: ASIC fixes for noisy analog “Oops”

App note from Maxim Integrated about simple fixes that can solve most issues when designing with ASICs. Link here (PDF) Noise is a common problem in mixed-signal ASICs, degrading performance and jeopardizing the completion of products. This application note gives hints and tips for adding external circuits that make many of these ASICs operational for […]

NandLand – FPGA info and tutorial site

Russell is interested in working with FPGAs. He’s developed an educational website: www.nandland.com. “It’s an educational website for people interested in learning about FPGAs and ASICs, mostly by focusing on VHDL and Verilog tutorials and examples. I have written all of the content on it myself and I’m adding new content constantly.” Check it out! […]

OpenRISC ASIC chip fundraiser

January 18 is OpenRISC day and the OpenRISC project currently is conducting a fundraiser. We are raising $250,000 to build the worlds first truly open source system on chip processor. Help make this happen by donating to the project today. Money raised will be used to fabricate a batch of OpenRISC SOC ASIC chips that […]
