How FPGAs Will Impact AI in 2024

How FPGAs Will Impact AI in 2024

Posted 02/08/2024 by Bob O’Donnell, President and chief analyst, TECHnalysis Research

As we enter the new year, there’s one topic in the tech world that no one seems to be able to get off their mind: AI. Indeed, AI has been talked about so much by so many different companies that people are now starting to notice when companies don’t mention it! In the semiconductor world, most of the AI attention has been focused on GPUs or dedicated AI accelerator chips like NPUs and TPUs. But it turns out there’s quite a range of components that can directly impact and even r...

Making Timing Secure in 5G Open RAN Networks

Posted 05/25/2023 by Bob O’Donnell, President and chief analyst, TECHnalysis Research

Over the last few years, we’ve seen dramatic evolutions of large cellular networks on several different fronts. Most notably, of course, has been the transition to 5G, a faster, more responsive and more powerful network architecture. 5G has enabled faster download speeds, opened up new applications like Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) mobile broadband, and is poised to bring important new innovations like network slicing to companies around the world. Another big move that coincided with the l...

The Answer to Security and Synchronization for 5G+ Network Infrastructure

The Answer to Security and Synchronization for 5G+ Network Infrastructure

Posted 02/27/2023 by Dr. Hossam Fattah and Mamta Gupta, Lattice Semiconductor

Today, we are seeing 5G Open Radio Access Network (ORAN) change the landscape of cellular and mobile networks. Specifically, the opening, disaggregation, and virtualization of the RAN architecture is creating a paradigm shift in the mobile network infrastructure. Many functions of the traditional RAN network are being de-coupled between the hardware and software components. This decoupling of functions is bringing about flexibility and innovation to the network deployments as hardware and softwa...

Addressing the Evolving Security Needs of 5G Networks and ORAN with FPGAs

Posted 09/30/2022 by Mamta Gupta, Director of Security & Comms Segment Marketing, Lattice Semiconductor

Ahead of National Cybersecurity Awareness month in October, Lattice held its latest security seminar focusing on the evolving security landscape of 5G networks and ORAN. If you missed the live event, you can watch a recording of the “Reimagining Telecom Security Solutions for 5G Networks & ORAN with FPGAs” seminar here, or read on to explore some of the highlights. Centralized network security models of the past are becoming increasingly vulnerable as the rollout of 5G and ORAN c...

Secure, Synchronized, Low Power ORAN Deployment is Reshaping the 5G Paradigm

Posted 05/31/2022 by Mamta Gupta

At two of the most important connectivity conferences in the world this year, Mobile World Congress 2022 and ETSI (the European Telecommunications Standards Institute) Cyber Security Standards Conference, one topic was top-of-mind for everyone in attendance: open radio access networks, or ORAN. Projected to become a $22 billion market by 2028, this year is an inflection point for the industry, with outlets like Forbes citing 2022 as the decision-making year for ORAN capabilities in the marketpla...

Implementation of Artificial Neural Networks at the Edge

Implementation of Artificial Neural Networks at the Edge

Posted 07/05/2017 by Hussein Osman

Imagine private security systems that can differentiate between an intruder and your neighbor’s dog, smart TVs that can scan the room and automatically turn off when no one is present, and cameras that can perform forensic analysis and identify suspicious behavior before a crime occurs. The applications for deploying artificial neural networks at the edge are endless. Coming up with ideas is easy, but getting to the implementation is not that simple.
