Haps80 is ultrascale based vs haps70 is virtex7 based. More gates in fpga, faster. Reduce the pain to split your design into multiple fpgas also your design can run at faster speed, which can be critical if it interfaces with some real time modules.

Figured out how to protect Verilog source code. You can use modelsim vlog command and run “vlog +protect xxx.vp”. In xxx.v source code, you need to put `protected and `endprotected to enclose the source code you want to protect. Then you can compile protected xxxx.vp…[Read more]
Good touch on some algorithm level low power design techniques. I’d say most are actually not used in practical RTL design since their power saving is very trivial compared to overall system pwr consumption and the techniques introduce difficulty to design and maintain.
