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.

Using the DS28E18, The Basics

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

This application note goes over the basics of using the DS28E18 1-Wire® to I2C/SPI Bridge with Command Sequencer and discusses the steps to get it up and running quickly. It then shows how to use the device with two different devices. The first device is an I2C humidity/temperature sensor and the second one is an SPI temperature sensor device. It concludes with detailed logs of each command.
