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
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
