Connecting the Dots

Siloti Helps Reveal the Picture

by Bryon Moyer

Dot-to-dots are a fundamental part of American kiddie culture. Maybe it’s universal; I don’t want to speak to things I know nothing about… (much). But at least here in the US, it’s a typical child’s pastime (or homework busywork to placate parents that don’t want their children wasting their time playing): a piece of paper has a few strategically-placed numbered dots. You fill in the missing information by supplying the path between the dots; the result should reveal an image that wasn’t evident at the start.  Read More

Cramming Moore Components

Posted on 04/23/15 at 2:02 AM by Reiner

I agree with the statement, that Moore’s Law is slowing to a long and expensive end. However, Moore’s Law has also a long and expensive history.

The amount of intelligence we’ve been able to pack into inanimate objects has not always paralleled Moore’s…

Photographer catches his camera drone moments before it crash-lands in the ocean

Posted on 04/22/15 at 11:06 AM by kevin

I'm unsure. Some things make me suspect it could be staged:

- The camera is conveniently pointed at the guy the whole time. That would make it much easier if someone else were flying it to have it arrive at exactly the right time for him to catch it.

What do you guys think about this one - legit, or staged?

XMOS xCore-200 Wants to Replace Peripherals

Posted on 04/21/15 at 7:50 PM by CharlieM

The XMOS approach is MORE hardware, amounting to one CPU per driver, but it still requires software.

There is an alternative for simple systems. NL is an ALL HARDWARE method (for time- or safety-critical functions) that has NO run-time code.


All About Messaging Protocols

Intel Altera Deal Off?

For the reason's posted under "Intel Plus Altera

Everything that is important they will need to engineer themselves anyway, and that isn't very much. A co-processor FPGA fabric i…
