FPGAs and The Next Generation of Cameras

by Amelia Dalton

Not much could be cooler than 3D video using FPGAs, right?  Yeah, that's what I thought too, so in this week's Fish Fry, I chat with Niladri Roy of Lattice Semiconductor about some of the coolest video-related FPGA applications out there right now. Lattice is using FPGAs in some pretty creative ways in their new camera development kits, so if you're into video technology, you'll want to check out this week's interview. 

Ready... Goggles on... Go!

Also this week, I am giving everyone another chance to win a MachXO2 Pico Development Kit courtesy of Lattice Semiconductor, but you'll have to listen to find out how to win.

This week's Fish Fry is all about the newest advances in FPGA-based video technology. What do you think about the evolution of this technology and the rising competition in the FPGA marketplace?

Where is the Value? Where is the ROI?

IoT Business Model Ruminations

by Bryon Moyer

When you think about it, the much-vaunted launch of the Internet of Things (IoT) represents an enormous investment in research, development, and rollout. Much is made of all the cool things well be able to do once its all in place, but I see less discussion of what the return will be on all of that investment. After all, some of us may be focused on this because we think the technology is cool, but someone else has to pay us, and so theyre going to want to see something for their efforts in the long-run.

You might wonder, for example, why a simple, self-respecting thermostat maker would want to get all complicated by adding a bunch of functionality to the poor little wall-mounted bugger, bringing the phone and cloud into the party as well. If youre that thermostat guy and youre using classical marketing thinking, then one reason for doing this might be so that your thermostat will do more than your competitors, and so youll sell more than they will.

The return? The extra profits from the extra sales....

Open Power Foundation Aims to Make PowerPC More Plentiful

by Jim Turley

Once upon a time, there were many little RISC processors frolicking in the deep green microprocessor forest. There was the jaunty little ARM. The bright little SPARC. The mighty little MIPS. The aristocratic little PowerPC. And so many others. They all played and laughed and had ever such a good time.

Then, one by one, the happy little RISC processors started disappearing. Were they gobbled up by the big, bad CISC processor that lurked in the woods? Did they cross over the Wheatstone Bridge and into another land? Or did they just get lost in the tall grass, wandering aimlessly until their mommies and daddies forgot about them? ...

iWatch, You Speculate Incessantly

by Bruce Kleinman, FSVadvisors

I held out as long possible before writing anything iWatch related. The irony is that I am iFatigued with everyone iGuessing about an iUnnanounced product, and yet here I am contributing to the noise. iCaramba! The proverbial last straw: I read a piece comparing Microsofts unannounced wearable to Apples unannounced wearable. OMG.

And AFTER deciding to write this piecebut before I could startanother piece appeared with the declarative headline Heres Everything We Know About the iWatch. And because I cannot make up stuff this good, apparently the things we KNOW include:...
