Smart Consumer Robots and Toys

Powerful, Low Power FPGAs Enable Next Generation Robots and Toys

Next generation of consumer robots and toys are embedding a range of sensors to drive rich user experiences and human-like interfacing. Designers are taking advantage of flexibility in sensors choices, powerful low power edge processors, and ability to aggregate data from multiple sensors to drive these devices.

Lattice’s smart solutions running on optimized low power FPGAs provide:

  • Low power on-device AI for object detection, identification, counting, and human-machine interfacing
  • ISP and other processing to collect quality image, sound, and data from sensors
  • Flexible and low latency sensor data aggregation, bridging, and buffering from a wide variety of sensors
  • Accurate, low power, and predictable motor control to drive devices’ movement
