Google TechTalks

This is a talk from Professor Bob Brodersen of UC Berkeley on general-purpose low power supercomputing using reconfiguration. Although the talk is from the end February last year the topics and ideas presented are very much relevant to what’s going on today in electronics. The main theme behind the talk is on how to exploit FPGA technology to gain power efficiency for general-purpose parallel computing. I believe that the most power efficient design has to be very application specific, and therefore custom designed IC’s are usually the best solution; however that may not be an option if time and money come into the equation. One solution is to use FPGA technology, and this talk helps you understand how it can be done effectively. Professor Brodersen also explains why power has become such an important issue and why parallel computing is necessary.
