Architecting Low Power AI

System Architecture Options for On-Device AI

Posted 11/14/2018 by Deepak Boppana

How often is low power the determining factor for success? Certainly when designing solutions for AI inferencing in always-on edge devices, the power consumption must be measurable in milliwatts. Think about it: AI at the edge solves real world problems, and is – or very soon will be – everywhere.

New NIST Standard Tackles Latest Attack Vector for Servers

Posted 11/07/2018 by Shyam Chandra

There is an emerging, though not widely known attack vector for hacking a server: firmware. Last month, researchers at ESET published a report on Lojax, a rootkit (firmware hacking tool) believed to have been developed by Sednit, the notorious cyberespionage group linked to Russian military intelligence.

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.

The Life of an Extraordinary Lattice Employee

The Life of an Extraordinary Lattice Employee

Posted 01/08/2018 by Ryan Short

On December 21, 1983, a young engineer with a long mullet and bell-bottoms flew to Portland, Oregon to join a start-up, Lattice Semiconductor, as employee #31. He left a steady job at Harris Corp. in Melbourne, Florida to go where he thought he could have the most significant impact. Lattice was a using an EEPROM technology that he had an idea for.

The Evolution of Computing

Posted 12/19/2017 by Darin Billerbeck, President and CEO, Lattice Semiconductor

The first “computer” I ever owned was a slide rule. By today’s standards you could say my pencil served as my terminal and the slide rule was my computing agent. People laugh about it now, but my trusty slide rule served its purpose. In the business world, server-based computing was all the rage. Those early systems represented some of the first centralized computing architectures.

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.
