Plan 8 from Outer Space

Calypto’s Catapult 8 Takes Us Higher

Bob killed the headlights and put the car in park. We sat in silence. Eerie lights danced on the horizon. First east, then west, and then straight up into the night sky. We watched with mouths agape as the lights came closer (and closer), only to quietly fade away. A UFO in our midst? Not quite. HLS. Most of us have been watching the skies in hopes for the arrival of High Level Synthesis for years. Steering today’s HLS-powered flying saucer is my guest Mark Milligan (Calypto Design Systems). Mark is here to reveal the mysteries of Catapult 8. He’ll shine a light on how HLS is powering image processing and video applications, and explain how we can get to design closure from the top or the bottom. Also this week, we introduce a kickstarter campaign that aims to bring fashion-forward wearable fitness monitors to your next holiday wish list.

Let'€™s face it: We'€™re addicted to SRAM. It'€™s big, it'€™s power-hungry, but it'€™s fast. And no matter how much we complain about it, we still use it. Because we don'€™t have anything better in the mainstream yet. We'€™ve looked at attempts to improve conven...
