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.

When Wireless Technologies and Drones Soar

When Wireless Technologies and Drones Soar

Posted 08/02/2016 by Peiju Chiang

When I walked the show floor at CES 2016, I knew right then and there that drones would become one of the hottest technologies of 2016. I could not go a few steps without seeing one hovering in the air. There were drones as small as the size of your palm and drones that aimed to carry a person in flight. Even the heavy-weights like Intel, Qualcomm, and NVIDIA, had joined the fray.

Or maybe you are on a quest, traveling through a dark forest with a team of trusty companions. You look up and you see the sunlight through the branches. You look to your left and see the glint of…wait is that a sword?
