Here's what they say on the website:
No matter how you call it - Prima Aprilis, April Fools’ Day, All Fools’ Day, Aprilscherz, Jour du poisson d’avril or Hunt the gowk Day - thank you for your sense of humour and thank you that you took our joke.
yours sincerely, DCD Team
These guys do IPs not physical chips...
I can understand the confusion and misinformation regarding the BYT-ON. It's still a pretty new technology. In fact, it's so new that I'm surprised they have it ready to ship. I've been expecting the company to first ship the BYT-ME version.
I'm taking everything I read today, including the weather forecast, with a grain of low sodium salt.
Whan that Aprille with his shoures soote
The droghte 2 of Marche hath perced to the roote,
And bathed every veyne in swich licour,
Of which vertu engendred is the flour...
Happy April 1! If it's still on the market tomorrow I'll buy it.
I just heard back from an unidentified underling for Lattice Semiconductor, speaking on condition of anonymity. The following is his (or her) direct quote:
“Well, it’s always something, isn’t it? Really, there’s only so much technology one can evaluate in any given day before one is just exhausted. So, while we can neither confirm nor deny any rumors linking grapheme-based FPGAs and Lattice, we can categorically state that we may or may not look into it further. Or not.”
Well, that seems to be fairly conclusive to me ... there's obviously a coverup going on ... what do you think?
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
