White Papers

C-V2X Drives Intelligent Transportation
This white paper describes the benefits that cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technology will provide by enabling vehicles to communicate directly with each other (V2V), transportation infrastructure (V2I), and network-connected service providers (V2N).
In-Memory Acceleration for Big Data
Standard CPUs can easily perform complex calculations on small datasets, but they struggle to handle larger datasets, particularly for simple tasks such as search. GSI Technology has created a new type of processor that combines memory and compute units on a single chip.
Certus-NX Innovates General-Purpose FPGAs
Certus-NX is the second product in Lattice's Nexus family, bringing the benefits of FD-SOI to a broader range of applications. It is well suited for many applications including smart home, IoT, consumer networking, and motor control.
Machine Learning Moves to the Edge
Embedded systems at the edge of the network will increasingly use machine learning (ML) to deliver new capabilities. Even as ML becomes more important, these new capabilities must be added without breaking the BOM cost and power budgets of existing products.  SiMa.ai is a new company developing a product to fit these requirements.
