    White Paper: EOLs happen - How to optimize for changes

    Staff (Sparton)
    The prevailing wisdom used to be that the replacement of key components during the mid-lifecycle design refresh was simply too costly. Those days are gone. Companies that have learned how to proactively handle mid-lifecycle changes have the competitive edge.

    White Paper: The Best Defense is a Good Offense

    Staff (Avnet Electronics Marketing)
    With military systems' life cycles of 20 to 50 years, component obsolescence is always an issue. Now, however, OEMs are adopting more proactive Bill of Materials (BOM) management practices to lessen the impact of End-of-Life (EOL) notices.

    White Paper: FPGA Run-Time Reconfiguration: Two Approaches

    Staff (Altera Corporation)
    Good PR: It's not the usual meaning. PR in this case is Partial Reconfiguration, one of two approaches to run-time reconfiguration, with the other being Software Programmable Reconfiguration, discussed here. However, with benefits including reduced power consumption, hardware reuse, obsolescence av... [read more]

    White Paper: Five Ways to Build Flexibility into Industrial Applications with FPGAs

    White Paper: Five Ways to Build Flexibility into Industrial Applications with FPGAs

    Jason Chiang, Sr. Technical Marketing Manager (Altera Corporation); Stefano J. Zammattio, Product Manager (Altera Corporation)
    This document describes using an industrial-grade FPGA as a coprocessor or system on a chip (SoC) to bring flexibility to industrial applications. Providing a single, highly integrated platform for multiple industrial products, FPGAs can substantially reduce development time and risk.
