So what do you think is the coolest thing I missed on the Design West show floor?

The new Beaglebone Black seemed to be making quite a stir. The mustache camera at the Ti booth is powered by one. From what I've heard and read about it, it's potentially a rival to the Raspberry Pi in terms of cost and capability. The Beaglebone is open source, but the Pi has a few more connectors built in. I've been evaluating the Raspberry Pi for a couple of weeks now and I find it relatively easy to use (considering that it's Linux powered) and has quite a bit of power for the size and cost. I'm anxious to get a chance to look closely at the new BBB and see how it measures up. I tried to find someone to order from while I was down in San Jose, but at the time, everyone was sold out. I'm sure they're available now though.

You might have to wait a while to get one, unless you can pull rank as a journalist :-)

BBone Black's chief advantage over RasPi is that BBone has far more I/O pins so it's a superior platform for hardware development. There are some lively discussions at raspberrypi.org and element14 comparing the two. http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=41489 http://www.element14.com/community/thread/23575

This year was my first time at Design West and it was really enjoyable from the indepth talks to the show floor and of course CapNet. 

I will definitely be trying to attend next year

I've been to Design West (formerly ESC) quite a number of years, but this one was the best in quite a while. Next year, I hope to have something interesting to actually show, not just talk about.

You got a 4 out of 4 on the case study talk, so yes, I'd say you did quite wel. (A 3 on the other, which is average for the event...)

I remember TI inviting the editors to a function on the Wednesday evening -- they mentioned that the Moustache Camera would be there -- I think they were somewhat surprised when I turned up with my "Moustache on a Stick" (I always travel with one in case an emergancy arises):

Next Year Let's Play Chess!

My hope is that next year we can have several chess playing FPGAs all compete for the first annual Design West FPGAchess Crown!

If you following my blog on All Programmable Planet you can watch my progress toward an open source design that can be used as a starting point for your own ChessFPGA!

http://www.programmableplanet.com/author.asp?section_id=2141&doc_id=264755 

I hope to play against YOUR design next year!
