Industrial


Time-of-Flight Signal Processing & Filtering Using FPGAs


Time of Flight (ToF) equipment establishes the distance to an object or between objects. The real time Digital Signal Processing needed to perform filtering and data extraction on the received signal will overwhelm the capabilities of a small microprocessor. FPGAs offer a good solution.

Embedded Video & Imaging


High-resolution imaging and video handling are opening up new possibilities when relying on visual data to make decisions across a broad spectrum of applications. The inherent parallel processing and high-speed I/O capabilities of FPGAs make them ideal processing platforms for delivering the high data throughputs needed for these applications.

Smart Embedded Vision


Smart Embedded Vision is opening up new possibilities for stand alone or edge of net systems to analyse image data and make decisions from that data. Critical in these applications are the security and integrity of the data being processed, and secure high-speed interfaces for communication and transmission of the data.

Asset Tracking


Asset tracking means keeping track of your company’s physical assets and their information (location, status, due dates, etc.). The ultimate goal of asset tracking is simple: to save time and money. The data collected via asset tracking can be used to support decision making, prevent losses, and maximize asset utilization rates.

Kiosks & Vending (Touch-Free)


A low touch/no touch user interface for vending machines and kiosks has obvious benefits post pandemic. Presence, proximity and movement sensors can help to minimise physical contact with a machine. Optical, microwave or time-of-flight sensors can provide no-touch sensing of receptacles for drinks dispenser mechanisms.

IoT & Connectivity


Edge of Net Computing


Many real systems require a complex mix of interfaces – multiple UARTs, Fieldbus, Ethercat, proprietary interfaces – an IO mix beyond the interface capability of any processor. A good way to overcome this problem is to use an FPGA to consolidate and correlate all the inputs into a single format.

5G & WiFi 6


We examine the latest cellular and wi-fi standards and what they mean in the real world.

IoT Cloud Platforms


An IoT cloud platform enables networks of connected devices in multiple locations to access central infrastructure, servers and storage. It will also typically include the necessary services and standards for connecting, managing, and securing different IoT devices and applications.
