Calling All Plant Cars

Fish Fry - December 3, 2010

In my Fish Fry this week, I investigate the curious case of QuickLogic, Lattice Semiconductor’s new HiGig MAC IP Core, and Mercedes Benz’ new Biome concept car. Also this week, I announce the winner of the very first Fish Fry nerdy giveaway.

Join me for this week’s news wrap-up with my spin on the high-tech news of the week…  

If you like the idea of this new series, be sure and drop a comment in the box below.  We appreciate all of the comments submitted so far and we are working on implementing as many as we can. 

If you don’t like it, please send your comments to spam@techfocusmedia.com.  We’ll get to them right after I refinance my house, refill my online prescriptions, and help out that friendly Nigerian banker who keeps e-mailing me.

OK, seriously – all comments are welcome. We’ll be working to enhance the Fish Fry each week – as long as you’re watching.

Demo: Inuitive NU4000 SoC with ARC EV Processor Running SLAM and CNN

Sponsored by Synopsys

Autonomous vehicles, robotics, augmented and virtual reality all require simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) to build a map of the surroundings. Combining SLAM with a neural network engine adds intelligence, allowing the system to identify objects and make decisions. In this demo, Synopsys ARC EV processor’s vision engine (VPU) accelerates KudanSLAM algorithms by up to 40% while running object detection on its CNN engine.

SensorTile. Box - A Ready to Go IoT Node

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and ST Microelectronics

In the highly competitive IoT market, getting your idea to the prototype stage as quickly as possible is critical. But, designing non-differentiated things like connectivity, power supplies, sensor interfaces, and so forth soaks up valuable design time. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Thiago Reis from STMicroelectronics about SensorTile Box - a ready-to-go IoT node development kit that’s just waiting for your great IoT idea.
