AI Feeds Vision Processor, Image Sensor Boom


Vision systems are rapidly becoming ubiquitous, driven by big improvements in image sensors as well as new types of sensors. While the sensor itself often is developed using mature-node silicon, increasingly it is connected to vision processors developed at the most advanced process nodes. That allows for the highest performance per watt, and it also allows designs to incorporate AI accelera... » read more

Digitalizing Water Monitoring


Managing water resources has always been important, but that monitoring is becoming increasingly high-tech and much more useful. Rather than a spot check at the tap, or a crude measurement of water levels in a reservoir, chips are making it possible to monitor and measure water quantity and quality at the source, wherever it is stored, the spigot, and in the wastewater systems. As climate ch... » read more

LiDAR Market Continues To Percolate


Light imaging, detection, and ranging (LiDAR) sensors are still dazzling investors and technologists. They are chasing after the technology for automotive applications, while also keeping an eye on LiDAR for drones, industrial automation, mapping, and robotics, among other uses. It’s too early to tell how market share for automotive LiDAR is shaping up, as the bigger vendors are still work... » read more
