This tutorial provided an overview of the new “Post-Moore” testbed, the CRNCH Rogues Gallery, and enabled attendees to learn more about using the Emu Chick, one of the systems in the Rogues Gallery. We also covered a brief introduction to the Field Programmable Analog Array (FPAA) and other rogue devices.
