The Communication Super Highway

Fiber Optics and the New Age of Ruggedized Communication

Optical communication takes center stage in this week’s episode of Amelia’s Weekly Fish Fry. First up, Mark Benton (TE Connectivity) and I chat about the different levels where optics can exist in the world of electronic packaging and the how the most recent advancements in ruggedized fiber optic technology have ushered in a whole new era of box to box and PC to PC communication. Also this week, Patrick Mechin (Techway) joins us to discuss the biggest trends in rugged optical communication today and why signal integrity in these environments is more important than ever before.

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

Sponsored by Synopsys

Autonomous vehicles, robotics, augmented and virtual reality all require simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) to build a map of the surroundings. Combining SLAM with a neural network engine adds intelligence, allowing the system to identify objects and make decisions. In this demo, Synopsys ARC EV processor’s vision engine (VPU) accelerates KudanSLAM algorithms by up to 40% while running object detection on its CNN engine.

Smart Embedded Vision with PolarFire FPGAs

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Microchip

In embedded vision applications, doing AI inference at the edge is often required in order to meet performance and latency demands. But, AI inference requires massive computing power, which can exceed our overall power budget. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton talks to Avery Williams of Microchip about using FPGAs to get the machine vision performance you need, without blowing your power, form factor, and thermal requirements.
