ysionnea1lekernel: this FPGA does not seem to be so slow (IO) http://www.terasic.com.tw/cgi-bin/page/archive.pl?Language=English&No=52615:06
ysionnea1but it must be very expensive :)15:07
ysionnea1transceivers seem to be able to go up to > 10 Gbps15:07
ysionnea1and Stratix V GT can go up to 28 Gbps15:07

ysionnea1this is a monster fpga :o15:14
lekernelkintex-7 also has 10Gbps transceivers. but not that many that you could connect GDDR5 SDRAM on them.15:14
larscysionnea1: hopefully I'll have one of those soon15:15
ysionnea1stratix seems to have 66 of them15:16
ysionnea1crazy15:16
ysionnea1larsc: lucky boy :)15:16
larscor maybe it's still IV15:16
larschm15:16
lekernelthis is what I'm playing with right now: https://plus.google.com/photos/114321407839074124021/albums/594798375521478905715:16
larscI need to check15:16
lekernel:)15:16
larsclekernel: that looks crazy15:17
ysionnea1ouaaaa15:17
ysionnea1so, what are you making or what are you planning on making with it?15:17
lekernelright now I'm learning how to make a quantum cascade laser for emitting THz waves15:18
ysionnea1is it like a "network pattern" ?15:19
lekernelyou need to deposit hundreds of very fine layers (nanometers) with that machine. it takes forever - it started this morning and will keep going until tomorrow15:19
ysionnea1crazy :)15:20
ysionnea1do you have some plan once you know how to operate the machine correctly?15:20
lekernelsucking less at physics :)15:21
ysionnea1ahah15:21
ysionnea1that's a 10 years plan I guess :p15:21
ysionnea1not that you suck a lot, but there is so much to learn to understand very well the various notions in modern physics15:22
ysionnea1I heard that 14 28 etc nm asic technologies is just marketing name, they don't double the precision of the lithography each iteration of the technology15:55
ysionnea1it's just to say "it's 2 times better"15:55
ysionnea1I don't remember the step which was the last whose name was accurate and really represented the accuracy of the lithography15:56
ysionnea1does this rings a bell to anybody ?15:56
ysionnea1i'm searching for references of this on the web and I cannot find anything about it15:56
lekerneldouble patterning?17:06
ysionnea1ah yes maybe :)17:17
ysionnea1thanks!17:17
