IP Standards, Price-Fixing, and the LCD Cartel
We’re talking standards this week -- from the LCD Cartel "standardizing" the prices of their TFTs (otherwise called "price-fixing") to the standards we all need to employ to make sure our IP works the way we intend. I interview Ian Mackintosh (President - OCP-IP) about why IP standards are important, how OCP-IP can help us all get on the same IP page, and how Ian is trying to help us all become managers in our spare time.
I also have one more Altera DE0-Nano Development Kit (courtesy of Altera) to give away to one lucky listener. I'll tell you at the end of my broadcast how you can enter to win!

I'm very interested in the Altera DE0 Dev kit. I would use it for an LED Mood Wall controller (32x16 RGB LED matrix panel with diffuser in front). The Altera Dev kit would allow me to digitally control the matrix with MOSFET drivers and PWM modulation. The on board ADC would be used to process a sound signal and vary the display output based on the music. The MEMs gyro chip would also allow for some interesting user interaction with the display.

I am very interested in Altera DE0 Nano development kit.
I am working on the project where I can use DE0 Nano development board.
I am working with the Laser safety devises, that allow autonomous robots to move pick place, operation with knowledge of their surroundings, which prevents them and human to be involved in accidents.
Current system we have FPGA running on each Laser scanner, where I can collaborate multiple scanner to one controller, and process the data. 3-axis accelerometer will give whole new feature, for the balancing, positioning and surface property.
