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.

Solving the Challenges around In-Field Upgrades

Solving the Challenges around In-Field Upgrades

Posted 03/01/2018 by Joel Coplen

A key benefit of programmable logic devices, such as FPGAs and CPLDs, is their programmability. These devices are typically deployed with a unique design intended to address application-specific problems. And because of these problems, many embedded systems that deploy programmable products benefit greatly from the ability to update their design and configuration after manufacturing. An upgrade feature is useful for multiple end-applications.

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.
