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.

Benefits of FPGAs & eFPGA IP in Futureproofing Compute Acceleration

Sponsored by Achronix

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 how to design systems to be both fast and future-proof using FPGA and e-FPGA technology.
