Embedded control: Webcast discusses using FPGAs manage performance and power
Differentiating embedded control products calls for FPGAs with greater functionality, maximum performance, and minimum power consumption.
Learn from Altera Corporation’s Seyi Verma, product marketing manager for the company’s Stratix Series FPGAs, and Vaughn Betz, Director of Software Engineering, about using high-end 40-nm field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) that meet next- generation performance and power requirements for embedded controls. Download the webcast for a behind-the-scenes look at new technologies such as:
• Strained silicon and triple-gate oxide, and why they matter to you;
• New transceiver technology for the highest system bandwidth;
• Power optimization via FPGA architecture and the Quartus II software.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
