MAX + plus II: FPGA Integrated Digital Device Development Environment

The general tendency for the development of the element base of digital circuitry, starting with the appearance of the first integrated circuits in the early 60s to the present, is a continuous increase in the number of logic elements (LEs) placed on the chip, while reducing the unit cost of one element. An increase in the number of LEs continuously opens up the possibility of creating increasingly complex digital devices placed on a single chip. The main (far from complete) positive results of this trend include: Continue reading

How can you “burn out at work”

Having dealt with processor cooling issues, we can now easily figure out the question of why Duron processors burn up if they are turned on without a heatsink.

Generally speaking, the question is somewhat strange. For a long time, everyone has been searching for effective radiators, and some still have the idea to try – or maybe the processor will work without a radiator? Continue reading

Hope Small Orchestra Running DV

In recent years, a person interested in editing video on a personal computer has been hit by a real avalanche of information. But more recently, it was collected bit by bit and many technologies, including the simplest ones, had to be mastered blindly. But in the world of information technology, things are changing very quickly. Opportunities previously unavailable to the ordinary user and information about them are available to everyone today. Almost everyone who owns a personal computer (PC) and video camera can try their hand at video production (even in creating the simplest home movie). Continue reading
