Chalk Talk Maxim’s DARWIN Low Power Microcontrollers – Mouser and Maxim Integrated

   MCUs continue to evolve based on increasing demands from designers. We expect our microcontrollers to do more than ever – better security, more performance, lower power consumption – and we want it all for less money, of course. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Kris Ardis from Maxim Integrated … Read More → "Maxim’s DARWIN Low Power Microcontrollers – Mouser and Maxim Integrated"

Chalk Talk Bringing Arduino Into the Professional Environment – Mouser and Microchip

  Arduino can be an excellent platform for professional/commercial application development and deployment. While most engineers associate Arduino with hobby and maker use, Microchip Technology has developed tools and platforms that bring the convenience and ease of Arduino into the professional realm. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Bob Martin from … Read More → "Bringing Arduino Into the Professional Environment – Mouser and Microchip"

Chalk Talk Debug and Verify FPGA Algorithms with MATLAB and Simulink

   Today’s FPGA designs require industrial-strength functional verification. The ad-hoc methods that worked with older, smaller FPGAs just don’t cut it anymore. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Eric Cigan of MathWorks about ASIC-strength functional verification with model-based design.
