Abstract:

The past few years have seen a blossoming of open source tooling for FPGA design. This talk will start with a brief survey of actively developed open source tooling for FPGA design. We'll take a brief look at how these compare to traditional vendor toolchains, and finally conclude with a case study of how these tools are used in shipping products today.

Bio:

Bunnie is best known for his work hacking the Microsoft Xbox, as well as for his efforts in designing and manufacturing open source hardware, including the chumby (app-playing alarm clock), chibitronics (peel-and-stick electronics for craft), and Novena (DIY laptop). He received his PhD in EE from MIT in 2002. He currently lives in Singapore where he runs a private product design studio, Kosagi, and he actively mentors several startups and students.
