Designing Embedded Vision: It’s That Easy

Posted 05/24/2018 by Dirk Seidel

On the path for faster time-to market and reduced development time and cost, rapid prototyping is required for many electronic designs. To accomplish this task, designers need to reuse existing hardware and software building blocks. The emergence of vision technologies further complicates this path as many design engineers have experience in everything but embedded vision!

Form Follows Function – Selecting the Best Lattice FPGA

Form Follows Function – Selecting the Best Lattice FPGA

Posted 04/03/2018 by Gordon Hands

You may be asking yourself, “What does a nineteenth century architect have to do with FPGAs?” A key decision facing many system architects is which FPGA families to use in their next project. Lattice currently offers four classes of FPGAs: iCE, ECP, Mach and CrossLink. It is often tempting to think of FPGAs as just a blank canvas, ready to be filled with digital logic.

Designing a Wearable Body Camera with a Wireless Connector

Posted 02/20/2018 by Ehren Achee, CTO at SecuraShot Technologies

We knew what we wanted, but didn’t know how to get to a solution. We wanted to offer police officers a fully connector-less, robust body camera that could be worn throughout an entire work shift and still operate. The issue was that the camera would be capturing a lot of data throughout the day, so getting this information out without a mechanical connector had us scratching our heads. That is, until we learned about Lattice’s Snap short range wireless link technology.

Over the holidays, I was updating the firmware on my car, when my 12 year old walked in and asked me why I was updating the software on our car. I told him that the software was an older version, and the updated software improves some of the safety features of our car.

Not Your Father’s FPGA

Posted 11/21/2017 by Doug Hunter

I keep running into engineers who say “we can’t use FPGAs because they are too big, power hungry, and expensive!” While that’s true for many FPGAs, there are some FPGAs which defy the size, power, and cost stereotype. Thanks to these pioneers, FPGAs are no longer limited to network centers and are now becoming pervasive in edge devices you interact with daily.

Solving the Embedded Challenge of Too Many Signals and Interfaces

Posted 11/07/2017 by Joel Coplen

Building designs around state of the art microcontrollers and embedded processors brings along a specific challenge: not enough I/Os and interfaces. Today’s embedded systems have more real-time data and control requirements than ever.
