Another chance to view this webinar in which you will learn how to take a complex mathematical function that was found to run too slowly in software and transform it into a high performance hardware submodule within Zynq®. Before making the transformation, we will show you how to model the hardware submodule in SystemC/TLM-2.0 to provide assurance that once the hardware is implemented, performance will meet expectations.

The webinar will demonstrate the tool flow from concept to FPGA implementation by using Xilinx Vivado® HLS and Vivado IP Integrator. The source code of the examples will be made available to all who attend.

The session will be presented by David C Black, Doulos Senior Member of Technical Staff and co-author of "SystemC: From the Ground Up", and will be broadcast on April 25th. It will consist of a one-hour session, (see below) and will be interactive with Q&A participation from delegates. Attendance is FREE!

What is war, and what is peace, really? Radiolab from WNYC episode

60 Words

I thought you'd like this episode of Radiolab from WNYC that I listened to on Stitcher Radio.

Here's what it's about:

This hour we pull apart one sentence, written in the hours after September 11th, 2001, that has led to the longest war in U.S. history. We examine how just 60 words of legal language have blurred the line between war and peace.
