Build A Low-Cost, Custom SoC In Just Weeks - Maker Faire
We chatted with Ming Zhang, co-founder and CEO of zGlue, a company that is going to revolutionize access to smaller systems in a way that is much cheaper and faster than traditional SoCs while much smaller than discrete components on PCBs. Using what he refers to as a 2.5D chip stacking technology and a proprietary integration technology, you can fit processors, sensors, PMICs, communication devices, as well as passives so you can design an entire system on a chip in days, and then have it manufactured in weeks. With the reduced costs, now small businesses and makers can create small, low-power products that used to only be possible for companies with millions at their disposal.
We’ve been discussing doing a hardware project at CircuitBread/SwellFox that would benefit from this, so we’re planning on picking up a dev kit ourselves to see if this will be a good solution for us. If you want to learn more, go check out their site at http://www.zglue.com/ and they’re also allowing preorders of the zOrigin until the end of June 2018 here - https://www.crowdsupply.com/zglue/zor....
