decimation: slur << that's the dumbest thing I've heard yet

decimation: http://www.acmeportable.com/products/netpac#specs-section << here's one, only weighs 24 lbs and comes with a fritz chip

asciilifeform: decimation: overpowers << skeptical until demonstrated in field (i.e. x86 pc) rather than laboratory (fpga with custom dram controller)
asciilifeform wrote a ddr2 controller for 'xilinx' chip once. it is amazingly easy to create a dysfunctional one with behaves like, for instance, the one pictured in that paper.
asciilifeform: just forget a refresh sometimes. or violate one of the many mandatory command sequences.
asciilifeform: or, or.
asciilifeform: instant strange.
decimation: yeah, that's a fair point
asciilifeform: i experimented with using a 'refresh-starved' dram for computation.
asciilifeform: and even as a particle detector.
asciilifeform: snore.
decimation: as kind of a pseudo analog computer?
asciilifeform: nothing pseudo about it.
decimation: did you succeed in detecting particles?
asciilifeform: not to my satisfaction.
asciilifeform: (certainly detected - something.)
decimation: ideally one would find a simultaneous set of 'hits' over an area so one could backtrack the cosmic rays
asciilifeform: works best with a 'sandwich' of dies.
decimation: asciilifeform: there's probably an nda'ed talmud of errata that is supplied to the actual chipset dealers
Adlai: how would you use it for computation?
decimation: who knows if the authors had access to such knowledge
asciilifeform: errata in dram ?
asciilifeform: times are dire, if errata for dram.
decimation: yeah w.r.t. exact timings, refresh rates, things
asciilifeform: normally these are determined experimentally.
asciilifeform: ask a 'bios tweak' aficionado.
decimation hasn't closely examined a dram datasheet
asciilifeform: decimation: http://www.eng.utah.edu/~cs5780/DRAM_datasheet.pdf << enjoy
assbot: ... ( http://bit.ly/1A76U9d )
decimation: lol
asciilifeform had that one printed & bound
decimation: asciilifeform: did you implement ddr2 bus on an fpga?
asciilifeform: bus?
decimation: I've heard from folks who have that it is a pain in the ass
asciilifeform: it is
asciilifeform: virtually impossible to do well from scratch (vs vendor turdware) without the unobtainable internal docs
decimation: it can be done, it just takes many man-months of experimentation with a particular set of hardware
asciilifeform: incidentally, fpga work shits straight into the faces of folks who think that 'anything can be slow-prototyped'
asciilifeform: you can't slow-prototype a dram controller!
asciilifeform: it's an all-or-nothing affair.
asciilifeform: either runs, or not.
asciilifeform: conform to the timing diagram - or die.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 33750 @ 0.00057621 = 19.4471 BTC [-] {2}
asciilifeform: decimation: months of experimentation << the end result is a product which cannot be understood, function of which cannot be rationally explained, and which will break on the slightest deviation from the parent hardware
asciilifeform: aka a turd.
decimation: yeah, that's pretty much the case. the vhdl codebase is littered with 'don't touch this' crazy code
asciilifeform will not read or write vhdl for love or money
asciilifeform: verilog is at least tolerable
decimation: vhdl comes with layers of bureaucracy
decimation: all of which is abused by the vendor tools & magically wedged with vendor ip
asciilifeform: xilinx ships a set of identially-functioning turdlibraries for both languages.
asciilifeform: each ultimately a set of wrappers around closed blobs.
thestringpuller: asciilifeform: i made an app, called the asciilifeform turd counter
thestringpuller: :D
asciilifeform: most of the more complicated ones being unusable in practice (e.g. ethernet controller that 'expires' after N frames)
asciilifeform: unless you pony up serious dough.
decimation: lol I didn't realize they had 'trialware' like that
decimation: that's hilarious
asciilifeform: at the risk of repeating the last 100+ xilinx threads - the closed architecture of -all- fpga vendors is specifically to enable this 'business model'
asciilifeform: i.e. to prevent you from curing the ethernet card.
asciilifeform: or sata card, or whatever.
asciilifeform: also to prevent taking the design to another fpga.
decimation: plus it's cash in their pocket

assbot: An Interview with Shahriar from The Signal Path - Quisquous Quivering Quadripole | The Amp Hour Electronics Podcast ... ( http://bit.ly/1A78JTP )
decimation: the annoying australian and some guy from cleveland interview a guy who works for bell labs designing >100 ghz analog ics
asciilifeform: afaik the only customer is usg.
decimation: as I recall, the guy claimed that most of the high-end fabs use cadence tools
asciilifeform: primarily for electronic arse search machines.
decimation: asciilifeform: yeah and there are some esoteric telco applications too
asciilifeform: aha and they won't even take your job if you aren't using cadence's cell libs.
asciilifeform: iirc
asciilifeform: mircea is mistaken when he writes that china controls ic manufacture.
decimation: yeah the bell labs guy has issues hiring because very few schools are willing to pay the bezzlars required to actually experiment with high-end process
asciilifeform: what does it mean if asia has all of the factories, but is utterly dependant on winblows and a stack of monopoly turdware as tall as empire state building ?
asciilifeform: for which, i will point out, no practical substitutes are known or, afaik, even contemplated anywhere.
decimation: asciilifeform: what it means is that they can enrich themselves privately by stamping out copies and selling shit on ebay
decimation: but doesn't give them a single step toward 'making their own'
decimation: yeah the bell labs guy said that they charge him $500k per year per seat
decimation: which sounds cheap
asciilifeform: the point is not the cost.
asciilifeform: to china, or to me, and you, it's $0
asciilifeform: to any 12 y.o. boy who knows what w4r3z is
asciilifeform: point is the control.
asciilifeform: and the winblows.
decimation: yeah but how are you going to walk into a foundry with your warez design?
asciilifeform: depends on who's foundry
asciilifeform: but that also isn't the point
decimation: if you pay $mils per year, people know who the hell you are
asciilifeform: point is that 'w4r3z dangle' is a time-honoured usg tactic.
asciilifeform: see the siberian pipeline incident.
asciilifeform: chinese semiconductor industry, afaik, runs almost 100% on warez.
decimation: so if a chinaman owns a foundry, and can get design warez, why not build & design own chips?
asciilifeform: because - in all but one out of thousand cases - why???
decimation: I guess he's getting paid to hustle for his usg masters
asciilifeform: he gets paid to sell, e.g., electric dildoes with programmable waveforms.
asciilifeform: they vibrate merrily, customers happy, the dough rolls in
asciilifeform: what should he want on top of this ?
decimation: from his point of view, he has a design team of usg zeks to work for him?
asciilifeform: for the work to actually be his own, non-plagiarized? in the confucian world, this is actually an anti-value
decimation: if the world were reversed and china was designing stuff for us foundries to stamp out, it would certainly be the case that us folks would try to do it themselves
asciilifeform: i'll point out that the complexity of the designs, which makes straight plagiarism so irresistible to the asians, doesn't happen in a vacuum.
asciilifeform: ever wonder whence we got the crock of shit that is usb ?
asciilifeform: pci ?
decimation: complexity is intentional, to lock everybody in
asciilifeform: virtually every little gibblet of the entire stack
asciilifeform: written guess where, by guess whom
decimation: by zeks, who work for companies whose entire business model consists of locking people into their bullshit by whatever means
asciilifeform: here's related story
asciilifeform: every day i wonder why the 'arm' architecture so thoroughly beat 'mips' (closest competitor in the 'risc' world) in the markets ☟︎☟︎
asciilifeform: despite being a steaming crock of shit compared to mips
asciilifeform: (arm makes a mockery of the whole risc concept, hundreds of weird instructions with a multitude of modifier bits, hilariously varies addressing mechanisms, etc)
asciilifeform: finally i arrived at an answer
decimation: plus they regularly redo the entire instruction set
asciilifeform: arm is sufficiently complex that folks were stuck licensing it verbatim, rather than reimplementing
decimation: whereas skilled undergrad could make a mips cpu?
asciilifeform: (an undergrad can throw a mips-compatible fpga core together in a day)
asciilifeform: aha
asciilifeform: hence arm (uk corp.) rolls in dough, without actually manufacturing anything at all
decimation: yes, there is much wisdom here. the electronics market consists nearly entirely of lock-in, either by complexity, inertia, or usg enforcement (patents, etc)
decimation: yet there's just enough 'freedom' to make the little people think that they actually control something
asciilifeform: the old saw about 'freedom of the press' belonging to the fellow with the press;
decimation: asciilifeform: this (arm's) was almost exactly the same business model as qualcomm's
asciilifeform: the freedom of the semiconductor belongs - not! to the fellow with the factory - but the one who controlls the entire process stack
asciilifeform: presently that's usg.
assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM1] 162 @ 0.12459819 = 20.1849 BTC [+] {8}
decimation: except they achieved lock-in by getting usg to enforce their comms standard & getting the cell phone ownership to agree

decimation: (I've been reading that slatestarcodex link)
decimation: whoever is willing to 'cooperate' and produce hardware/software that actually serves only the customer, will be eaten both those who are willing to defect for a cheap buck
Adlai: on the other hand, proper cooperation strategies could yield a strong enough ecosystem that it could survive defections of individual entities without the entire cooperative system collapsing
Adlai: for increasingly speculative values of "could"
decimation: this is something that underlies my yearning for 'hard currency': the idea that a hard currency would make defecting in this manner much less profitable
Adlai: how so?
decimation: presumably in a world funded primarily by investors actual capitol instead of made-up dollars, the loss of a bitcoin on an idiotic scheme is going to be a loss forever
decimation: new bitcoins can't be printed up to ensure the solvency of the 'investor class'
Adlai: and since you put it in scare quotes, how would you define 'hard currency'?
Adlai: compromised silicon softens bitcoin
decimation: but as asciilifeform has pointed out, the bezzlars (usg) control the entire silicon process stack
decimation: I'm thinking of bitcoin, but any currency that is finite would suffice
decimation: anyway, the pressure to not-lose would be much greater than the pressure to win-big in such a world
