The Future is Modular

Embedded Design, FMCs and Compact PCs

Whether you’re designing a COTS embedded computer, a low power consumer device, or an FPGA mezzanine card enhanced project, this Fish Fry has a little something for you. This week’s episode is all about FMCs, compact PCs, the future of embedded design, and some seriously cool new battery technology. Richard Avry (4DSP) joins us to chat about why he believes the future is modular, and what open standards like FMC and VPX buy us as engineers. Doug Patterson (Aitech) and I discuss the role of compact PCs in low power embedded systems and the challenges of designing compute platforms for millitary and aerospace applications. Also this week, we check out how University of California Irvine is changing the face of battery technology – one nanowire at a time.

Demo: Inuitive NU4000 SoC with ARC EV Processor Running SLAM and CNN

Sponsored by Synopsys

See Inuitive’s NU4000 3D imaging and vision processor in action. The SoC supports high-quality 3D depth processor engine, SLAM accelerators, computer vision, and deep learning by integrating Synopsys ARC EV processor. In this demo, the NU4000 demonstrates simultaneous 3D sensing, SLAM and CNN functionality by mapping out its environment and localizing the sensor while identifying the objects within it.

Create Multi-Band Sensor Networks with the LaunchPad SensorTag Kit

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Texas Instruments

Doing IoT development today can involve a number of different communications standards. There is no “one size fits all” for wireless protocols. Every application has its own needs and constraints. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Adrian Fernandez of Texas Instruments about the new LaunchPad SensorTag development kit - that can launch your IoT design regardless of what wireless standards you need.
