Google’s Smartphone Revolution

Inside Project Ara

A coup d’état is imminent. A mobile revolution. With “Modular!” banners held high and money where their mouths are, Google is marching through the streets determined to overthrow the status quo in smartphone technology. This week’s Fish Fry is all about Google’s Project Ara – why it’s cool, why you should care about this modular smartphone technology, and how you can get started designing your OWN modules. My guests are Ara Knaian (NK Labs) and David Rutledge (CTO – Lattice Semiconductor) and we are going to talk about what’s inside the Google Ara phone, the important role of FPGAs, and why Ara lent his name to this super cool new project. Also this week, we take a tour of Xilinx’s Vivado IDE and break the biggest news to hit the EE airwaves.
