Bridge Over Pixelated Water

CrossLink Changes the Camera Interface Game

by Amelia Dalton

We're talking about the building blocks of electronic design in this week's Fish Fry. First, we take a closer look at some groundbreaking transistor technology. We investigate new research coming out of the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology that could finally make graphene tunneling transistors a reality. Also this week, we examine Lattice Semiconductor's CrossLink pASSP with Subra Chandramouli. Subra and I dive down into the details of this new programmable bridging device and reveal how ASSP and the FPGA parts of the CrossLink story can help you with your next camera or interface-enhanced design.  Read More
