hello all from Edmonton, Alberta

Iron

Thanks for everything.

The second time is a charm.

The third time through, I shall get even more...

Good lecture series... Rod. R.

Iron

Thanks a lo for the information!!

Iron

Another great program. Thanks Warren.

Please join us tomorrow for the conclusion of Warren's week of programs.

Blogger

Thanx for attending and use the links posted below if you can't figure out how to access them on the Reference slide. CU 2morrow!

Iron

Thanks Warren. Got the links bookmarked. Lots of study to do.

Any other questions today?

Iron

A lot of the camera housings had heaters. Ouch!

Reference links-

Xilinx Zynq link here

Microsemi SmartFusion2 link here

Altera Aria V link here

Iron

Warren - Batteries in Northern latitudes will need arctic electrolyte or be gel type to last through teh sub-zero conditions.  So, yes batteries are an option for remote applications in Alaska too.

Iron

awesome, thank you. I will try that

Iron

MayanBlood- I will post the links when the chat gets closer to the end. Should be posted in 5min or so. Some people seem to be able to access the links in PPT 'Show' mode. You might try that too...

Iron

Alaskaman66- Got it. These days it is possible to run off batteries (in some cases)

Iron

Hello Warren, did you posted the missing links?

Iron

Every application for fixed security was on plant power. At that time, the power requirements precluded anything battery powered.

Alaskaman66- Did you need to worry about power on the surveillance video application? Battery, solar, etc?

Iron

Ahh,...North Slope.

Iron

I did surveillance video maintenance for Alyeska Pipeline. Lots of discussions about what works and the human system interface.

Alaskaman66 - reminds me of stereo cameras I used for underwater ROVs in teh past.  We used photogrammetry those days to derive 3-D, not it is all built into the functionality of the devices.

Iron

Alaskaman66- You are right on target with your comment about Video. This is a big target market for the FPGA guys. Much like communications and networking are as well. When you get covergent requirements for video and networking/comm these devices can really shine...

Iron

Mr Logic- RTOS can be a complication if you don't really need them. I think we will strt seeing more RTOS-lite implementations that are easy to use and understand....

Iron

These products appear well suited for a security application where HD video is encoded as MPEG-4  at a frame rate of at least 60/sec, Such a system would need external cuing, including video motion analysis. The only part still required is a camera system with logic controlled zoom capability, hopefully implemented without the complexities of a typical zoom lens. Multiple synced cameras could also provide an input for post 3-D scene processing.

Sherlock- Open CL is a "C" like language that can target FPGAs or MCUs. Higher level than Verilog or other Hardware oreiented languages...

Iron

Warren, I had to refresh several times. And I am on LAN today.  Perhaps improving the audio experience is something DigiKey could address for future CECs.

Iron

What is OpenCL? Is it for design algorithm hardware into FPGA?

Blogger

my audio dropped out but I think it was a wifi signal loss

Iron

How was the audio today? Anyone have trouble hearing?

Iron

Thanks Warren and Rob

Iron

goodnight and thanks once again sir warren for a great presentation, i will repeat it again in the archived.

Thanks Warren, Rob, and Digi-Key

Iron

I do not like RTOS implementations - too much of a mystery for stability (my lack of trust I suppose) - preffer state machine implementations.  Haven't used any significant 3rd party software IP.

Iron

No, I have not used RTOS so far

Iron

Thanks Warren, excellent presentation.

Iron

Thanks, Warren. Great presentation.

Rob- I see you posted it too! Thanx!

Iron

Thanks again for another great presentation.

Iron

I did have one more question for everyone. Have you used RTOS  or higher level software IP in your designs?

Iron

Thank you Warren.  Shalom.

Iron

thanks  sir warren, nice presentatiion...

Thanks for today's great talk

 

 

Thanks Warren for nice presentation.

Iron

Thanks Warren, Rob, & Digi-Key

Iron

Warren has a question:

Have you used higher level design IP like drivers or RTOS? What
products did you use them with?

Blogger

Thanks again for another great presentation

Iron

Thanks Warren and rob.

Iron

You can click the links if you view the PPT in slide show mode.

Here's hoping everyone survived the weather debacles.

Thanks for good presentation

Iron

Warren, thank you for today's presentation

The first photos made with a 3D-printed telescope are here and they're not as fuzzy as you might expect. A team from the University of Sheffield beat NASA to the goal. The photos of the Moon were made with a reflecting telescope that cost the research team 100 to make (about $161 US).
At Medical Design & Manufacturing Midwest, Joe Wascow told Design News how Optimal Design prototyped a machine that captures the wing-beat of a duck.
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
