The world’s largest LEGO wooden roller coaster

Chairudo built the world’s largest wooden-style coaster, inspired by El Toro at Six Flags, out of LEGO. His gigantic LEGO wooden coaster was made out of around 90,000 bricks, it measures 21 feet long, 4 feet wide, 4.5 feet tall, and sports 85 feet of track. It is currently on display at the Czech Repubrick event at Hamleys toy store in Prague, Czech Republic.

Achronix VectorPath Accelerator Card Uses PCIe Gen4 x16 to Communicate with AMD Ryzen PC

Sponsored by Achronix

In this demonstration, the Achronix VectorPath™ accelerator card connects to an AMD Ryzen based PC using PCIe Gen4 x16 interface. The host PC issues commands to have the Speedster™7t FPGA on the VectorPath accelerator card write and read to external GDDR6 memory on the board. These data transactions are performed using the Speedster7t FPGA’s 2D network on chip or NoC which eliminates the need to write complex RTL code to design the host PC to GDDR6 memory interface.

Cutting the AI Power Cord: Technology to Enable True Edge Inference

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Maxim Integrated (now part of Analog Devices)

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are exciting buzzwords in the world of electronic engineering today. But in order for artificial intelligence or machine learning to get into mainstream edge devices, we need to enable true edge inference. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Kris Ardis from Maxim Integrated about the MAX78000 family of microcontrollers and how this new microcontroller family can help solve our AI inference challenges with low power, low latency, and a built-in neural network accelerator.
