|Presentation Title:||Insights into NMI FPGA Usage Survey of UK and Ireland|
|Abstract:||Doug Amos of the NMI will present a thought-provoking summary of the key findings from the October 2014 NMI FPGA Usage survey, highlighting common challenges, skills, methods and trends.
|Biography||Among other things, Doug Amos is Director of the FPGA Network within NMI. Doug has carved out a living from programmable logic and FPGA for over 30 years, holding technical positions with Altera, Synplicity and Synopsys. He was also a freelance consultant designer and “PIP-Pilot” back when LUTs were still a pretty neat idea. In all that time, the one constant has been the rapid change within the industry, and despite its maturity, FPGA still takes a lot of keeping up with, and that will keep Doug busy for some years to come.|
