Google and Oracle Battle it Out Over Code Copyright
“I’m not a doctor, but I play one on TV.” – Chris Robinson
I’m not a lawyer (thankfully), but that won’t stop me from rendering a legal opinion: This is nuts.
Let’s start with a car analogy. You decide that your trusty, rusty Ford F-150 pickup truck needs an oil change and a new oil filter. You buy the oil and the filter at your local auto-parts store, jack up the old wreck, and proceed to change them both in your driveway. Ford has no problem with this. Read More

Designing the DC/DC power supply for your design is almost never the fun part. And, designing a good power supply can be a complex engineering challenge. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Tenille Medley of Texas Instruments about simplifying industrial power design. It may just make your next design project a lot easier.
Get DFT off the critical path on your next chip design. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Jean-Marie Brunet of Mentor Graphics about how you can use emulation to significantly improve your DFT productivity.
We often find ourselves needing to measure temperature and take some action in our designs. But, thermal management can be a complicated area, with a lot of alternatives in terms of sensors and supporting circuitry. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with John Austin of Microchip Technology about the numerous options for thermal management solutions.
High-level design methods can dramatically increase your productivity. Now that technologies like high-level synthesis (HLS) have gone mainstream, we can make some serious improvements to our FPGA design process. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Tim Vanevenhoven of Xilinx about how the new HLx editions of Vivado Design suite are taking high-level design mainstream.
Today's FPGAs demand a lot from your design tool environment, particularly when it comes to synthesis. With larger designs, more third-party IP, globally-distributed design teams, and increasing performance and power challenges, the demands on synthesis technology are greater than ever. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Joe Mallett of Synopsys about the latest generation of the Synopsys Synplify FPGA design tools.
Brushed DC motors are the go-to solution for thousands of applications. And, although most of us have experience with brushed motors at some point, few of us have taken the time to become experts. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with David Witt from Infineon about the finer points of brushed DC motor theory, and they look at some helpful motor control solutions from Infineon.
