Sending Mixed Signals

by Amelia Dalton

This week we’re talking mixed signals. My guest is Mladen Nizic (Cadence) and we’re talking about a brand new book published just a couple weeks ago called “Mixed-Signal Methodology Guide”.  Mladen and I chat about who this book is for, what companies collaborated to make this manual happen, and even where mixed-signal education is headed. Also this week, I check out Altera’s newly released roadmap for 20nm and a new “magic carpet" that can not only map a person’s individual walking patterns but also predict when they are going to fall.

I’ve also got a brand new nerdy giveaway this week, but you’ll have to tune in to find out what it is and how to win.

This week's Fish Fry is all about mixed signals, Altera's newly released roadmap to 20nm, and some excited new carpet technology that will predict when you will fall. What do you think about today's stories?

The magic carpet technology sounds fun, as long as your Grande Latte doesn’t tip over. Thanks for the update on Voyager! Or is it V’Ger?

Hi Amelia,

I would love a copy of the Mixed Signal Methodology Guide.


BTW, I am still waiting for the XMEGA-A3BU Xplained kit.
