Movidius Deep Learning USB Stick by Intel

Last week, Intel launched the Movidius Neural Compute Stick, which is a deep learning processor on a USB stick. This USB stick was not an Intel invention. In fact, Intel had acquired Movidius company that had produced last year the world’s first deep learning processor on a USB stick based around their Myriad 2 Vision Processor. Neural Compute Stick is based around the Movidius MA2150, the entry level chip ...

PARALLEL PROCESSING WAS NEVER QUITE DONE LIKE THIS

Parallel processing is an idea that will be familiar to most readers. Few of you will not be reading this on a device with only one processor core, and quite a few of you will have experimented with clusters of Raspberry Pi or similar SBCs. Instead of one processor doing tasks sequentially, the idea goes, take a bunch of processors and hand out the tasks to be done simultaneously. It’s a fair bet though tha ...

FPGAs For MCU Guys

A little while ago, it struck me that I was getting tired of explaining what FPGAs are and how they work their magic to those of my chums who -- thus far -- have worked only with microcontrollers (MCUs), so I decided to write a three-part mini-series of articles to offer as an introduction. As I said in the first column: A lot of my friends are highly experienced embedded design engineers, but they come fro ...

Analyzing the vintage 8008 processor from die photos

The revolutionary Intel 8008 microprocessor is 45 years old today (March 13, 2017), so I figured it's time for a blog post on reverse-engineering its internal circuits. One of the interesting things about old computers is how they implemented things in unexpected ways, and the 8008 is no exception. Compared to modern architectures, one unusual feature of the 8008 is it had an on-chip stack for subroutine ca ...
