3D Imaging and Sensing: From Enhanced Photography to an Enabling Technology for AR and VR

Beginning in late 2017, Apple brought an innovative use case to mobile devices: by means of a structured light-based 3D sensing camera module that the company built into the front bezels of smartphones (and later, tablets), users were able to rapidly and reliably unlock their devices using only their faces. Android-based mobile device manufacturers have added front depth sensors to their products in response, and are now striving to enable applications that additionally leverage rear-side-mounted depth sensors.

So far, at least, these new applications are predominantly photography-related. In the near future, however, they're expected to further expand into augmented reality, virtual reality and other applications, following in the footsteps of Google's trendsetting Project Tango experiment of a few years ago. And with rumors suggesting that time-of-flight camera modules will also begin appearing on the rear sides of iPhones later this year, it's anyone's guess as to who—Android or iOS—will launch (and achieve widespread success) with this technology first.

In this webinar, market research firm Yole Développement will describe the application roadmap, market value and cost of those highly anticipated mobile 3D sensing modules, including topics such as CMOS image sensors, optical elements and VCSEL illumination. The webinar will be presented by Principal Analyst Pierre Cambou, who has been active in the imaging industry for more than 20 years.

Architecting Always-On, Context-Aware, On-Device AI Using Flexible Low-power FPGAs

Driven by concerns such as network bandwidth limitations, privacy and decision latency, interest in on-device Artificial Intelligence (AI) is increasing. Always-on context awareness is a key requirement in devices at the Edge, including mobile, smart home, smart city, and smart factory applications. Many of these Edge devices are battery-operated or have thermal constraints, leading to stringent power, size, and cost limitations. Additionally, the inferencing solution has to be flexible enough to adapt to evolving deep learning algorithms and architectures, including on-device training.

Given this unique mix of requirements for on-device Edge AI, developers need to architect their systems thoughtfully, both at the system level and the chip level. FPGAs are proving to be well suited for implementing machine learning inferencing, given their inherent parallel processing capabilities. In this webinar, Lattice Semiconductor uses its experience in developing always-on, vision-based AI solutions to illustrate these tradeoffs and explore optimizations across implementations ranging from 1mW to 1W.
