QuickLogic Opens Up FPGA Design

The walled fortress is a time honored tradition in the FPGA business. Since the beginning of FPGA time, vendors of programmable logic silicon have kept a tight grip on the tool chains that are used to program their devices. If you want to do anything with a vendor’s chips, you need the vendor’s tools and the vendor’s rules. The only exceptions have been … Read More → "QuickLogic Opens Up FPGA Design"

Securing Artificial Intelligence Before It Secures Us!

Since I spend an inordinate and unfortunate amount of time worrying about the possibility of a forthcoming artificial intelligence (AI) apocalypse, I was delighted to hear that the folks at ETSI have plunged into the fray with regard to establishing the world’s first standardization initiative dedicated toward securing AI. We will return to ETSI’s initiative shortly, but first…

Full Stack Future Proofing: How LEVL is Changing the Device Identity Game

Step right up ladies and gentlemen! We’ve got all sorts of fun lined up for this week’s Fish Fry podcast. Tim Colleran (LEVL) joins us to discuss LEVL-ID, what sets it apart this device identity technology from MAC randomization, and why full stack device Intelligence is key to its success. Also this … Read More → "Full Stack Future Proofing: How LEVL is Changing the Device Identity Game"

Neuromorphic Revolution

According to tech folklore, Carver Mead actually coined the term “Moore’s Law” – some ten years or so after the publication of Gordon Moore’s landmark 1965 Electronics Magazine article “Cramming More Components Onto Integrated Circuits.” For the next five and a half decades, the world was reshaped by the self-fulfilling prophecy outlined in that article. Namely, that every two years or so, semiconductor companies would be … Read More → "Neuromorphic Revolution"

Esperanto AI Chip Exploits Thousands of Minions

“The sad thing about artificial intelligence is that it lacks artifice and therefore intelligence.” – Jean Baudrillard

It’s turtles all the way down. That’s the takeaway from a deep dive into Esperanto’s upcoming AI chip, melodically named ET-SoC-1. It’s organized as layer upon layer of processor cores, memory blocks, and mesh networks as far as … Read More → "Esperanto AI Chip Exploits Thousands of Minions"

Cutting the AI Power Cord: Technology to Enable True Edge Inference — Maxim and Mouser Electronics  Artificial intelligence and machine learning are exciting buzzwords in the world of electronic engineering today. But in order for artificial intelligence or machine learning to get into mainstream edge devices, we need to enable true edge inference. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Kris Ardis from Maxim Integrated about the … Read More → "Cutting the AI Power Cord: Technology to Enable True Edge Inference — Maxim and Mouser Electronics"
UWB: Because Location Matters — Qorvo and Mouser Electronics  While technologies like GPS, WiFi, and Bluetooth all offer various types of location services, none of them are well-suited to providing accurate, indoor/outdoor, low-power, real-time, 3D location data for edge and endpoint devices. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Mickael Viot from Qorvo about ultra wideband (UWB) technology, and how … Read More → "UWB: Because Location Matters — Qorvo and Mouser Electronics"
Benefits of FPGAs & eFPGA IP in Futureproofing Compute Acceleration   In the quest to accelerate and optimize today’s computing challenges such as AI inference, our system designs have to be flexible above all else. At the confluence of speed and flexibility are today’s new FPGAs and e-FPGA IP. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Mike Fitton from Achronix about … Read More → "Benefits of FPGAs & eFPGA IP in Futureproofing Compute Acceleration"
Smart Embedded Vision with PolarFire FPGAs — Microchip and Mouser Electronics   In embedded vision applications, doing AI inference at the edge is often required in order to meet performance and latency demands. But, AI inference requires massive computing power, which can exceed our overall power budget.
