FireFly DSP is a developer of processor IP cores and associated software development tools, whose management team has a substantive semiconductor and software lineage. And SoftKinetic is a name that may already be familiar to some of you via its partnerships with Alliance members such as Intel and Texas Instruments; the company develops time-of-flight sensors for 3-D camera designs. Welcome, FireFly DSP and SoftKinetic!!

The Alliance is also less than two months away from presenting the premier Silicon Valley iteration of the Embedded Vision Summit, a free day-long technical educational forum for engineers interested...
