Sensing 3D

FPGAs and The Next Generation of Cameras

Not much could be cooler than 3D video using FPGAs, right?  Yeah, that’s what I thought too, so in this week’s Fish Fry, I chat with Niladri Roy of Lattice Semiconductor about some of the coolest video-related FPGA applications out there right now. Lattice is using FPGAs in some pretty creative ways in their new camera development kits, so if you’re into video technology, you’ll want to check out this week’s interview. 

Ready… Goggles on… Go!

Also this week, I am giving everyone another chance to win a MachXO2 Pico Development Kit courtesy of Lattice Semiconductor, but you’ll have to listen to find out how to win.
