Eyes scan the optimization options like a master pool player about to run the table against a hapless opponent. Solids and stripes form a map – a complex mathematical model where LUTs and connections melt away and a unique strategy emerges. Quick optimization to get the lay of the land, 7 ball in the side pocket, multiple runs for timing, park the cue ball left to set up for the 5 in the corner, check power and Fmax, defensive move behind the 8 ball. The physics of the situation evolve, and the expert plays them like an instrument. Many of us wear our FPGA expertise like badges of honor. We have spent decades learning the ins and outs – the quick tricks to move the design forward – always mindful of our adversary, the ghost in the machine who strives silently to give us something to push against – to bring out our best. It’s a great feeling when a defiant web of nets and n...
