A recent enhancement to the platoon of JAROS units is the ability to swim in formation, allowing for a more efficient mincing of dangerous intruders. KAIST notes that these developmental platforms also hold potential for other uses such as waste detection and removal as well as monitoring oil spills.

The 10-Gbit network processor will sample before year's end.

San Francisco, CA – April 9, 2001 – Embedded Systems Conference – Xilinx, Inc. announced today the Microblaze processor, which the company is calling the world's fastest 32-bit soft processor core developed by an FPGA vendor.

Running at 125 MHz, the Microblaze processor delivers a true 32-bit instruction and data bus critical for building complex systems for the networking, telecommunication, data communication, embedded and consumer markets, the company said. The Microblaze processor features a Harvard-style architecture with separate 32-bit instruction and data busses running at full speed to execute programs or access data out of on-chip or external memory.

The Microblaze processor offers performance previously seen only in ASICs,” said Wim Roelandts, president and CEO at Xilinx. By running at twice the speed and using half the logic of competing FPGA vendors' best efforts, MicroBlaze demonstrates its clear architectural advantage and also the power of the Xilinx? Virtex?-II FPGA fabric.”

As part of the company's Empower! strategy, the Microblaze processor complements the Xilinx embedded PowerPC solution. The Microblaze processor will utilize the IBM Coreconnect bus for peripherals, the same bus used for the embedded PowerPC processor cores, providing customers with a plug-and-play infrastructure for building complex system-on-a-chip.

FPGA technology is a significant force driving innovation in the industry,” said Walden C. Rhines, chairman and CEO at Mentor Graphics. We're seeing an increased demand for FPGA design tools from our customers, driven in part by the power of the Virtex-II device. Now, the possibility of embedding MicroBlaze processors opens doors to solving problems in the network and telecom space that would have been unimaginable only a few years ago. This technology is creating exciting opportunities for both FPGA designers and the EDA industry.”

The Microblaze processor is currently deployed through a beta program to leading suppliers of networking and telecommunications equipment manufacturers and will be in production in late summer of 2001. As part of this Beta program, Xilinx has already delivered Coreconnect enabled peripherals including an Arbiter and UART. Under development are 10/100 Ethernet MAC, SPI and ATM Utopia level-2 interfaces as well as a standard set of peripherals, including timer/counters, UART, interrupt controller, GPIO, and external flash and SRAM memory interfaces. All of these standard peripherals will be fully parameterizable.

Xilinx will offer the MicroBlaze development kit at a price of $495 that includes the soft processor and peripherals. In addition, the kit will contain a complete set of GNU-based software tools, including a compiler, assembler and debugger. Variations of the kit will include a Virtex-II development board and FPGA design tools.

We start with interpreting TDR measurements of uniform transmission lines in order to get the characteristic impedance, time delay, and dielectric constant, and then advance to extracting the excess capacitance and inductance in discontinuities. We show how to use two-port and four-port measurements to measure crosstalk and differential impedance, as well as common impedance. We also explain how even-and-odd mode impedance applies.

After allying TDR measurement in the time domain, we use these same principles applied to VNA measurements in the frequency domain. We show how to use both time-domain and frequency-domain measurements as a guide to hack into interconnects to build high-bandwidth, scalable-topology-based circuit models.

Once these measurement principles are established in the book, the rest of the work contains reprints of some of the DesignCon papers in which Mike and I participated. In each paper, you can see the same principles we illustrate in the tutorial chapters applied to real-world, complex structures.

I recently noticed a headline asking, Is GE Becoming Irrelevant?” The gist of the article involved GE from an investment point of view, and maybe in that context it is becoming less stellar as an investment. However, it is not, in terms of its industrial focus and most likely its Industry 4.0 future.
