This guy built a gorgeous camera from scratch

Ever find yourself in the position where you need something but can’t afford it? Lucus Landers did, when he needed a large-format camera for class so he found a laser-cutter and built a pretty janky-looking one out of wood. Now, the Louisiana native has just finished building another camera from scratch. It is a beauty.

The so-called Landers AL6 Mark II is an all-aluminum, medium-format camera that almost looks like it could be a vintage Mamiya prototype. The boxy edges hint at its being handmade, while the sleek design suggests sophistication. Landers says it wasn’t easy to get his camera-making prowess to this point. Read more at Gizmodo.

Achieve Greater Design Flexibility and Reduce Costs with Chiplets

Sponsored by Keysight

Chiplets are a new way to build a system-on-chips (SoCs) to improve yields and reduce costs. It partitions the chip into discrete elements and connects them with a standardized interface, enabling designers to meet performance, efficiency, power, size, and cost challenges in the 5 / 6G, artificial intelligence (AI), and virtual reality (VR) era. This white paper will discuss the shift to chiplet adoption and Keysight EDA's implementation of the communication standard (UCIe) into the Keysight Advanced Design System (ADS).
