10:00  --- COFFEE

10:15  --- Bottom-up Design in Altera Stratix II FPGA --- CH Ting
	"I am trying to layout designs the way they ought to be, taking 
advantages of the
	two-dimensional structures inherently in an FPGA. Altera tools in 
Quartus II allows
	one to assign logic to specific locations, and I will show how to 
use these tools. I
	filled the entire FPGA with a gigantic 2D shift register array with 
50x816 registers.
	I am implementing the search engine Chuck Moore did for me a long 
time ago. It
	has 32 comparator arrays, each of which has 200 comparators. I can put in an
	eP32 core to control the comparator arrays to facilitate software 
development of
	searching algorithms. I hope I can get enough things done for a real 
	at the meeeting."


Some folks bring their lunch, some folks go to Togos.
