Insights into NMI FPGA Usage Survey of UK and Ireland
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.
FPGA verification is taken more seriously than some might expect, but…

FPGA Embedded CPUs now widely used; will this help or hinder verification?
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.
