Design Tool Death Match: FPGAs, PCBs and We’re Caught in the Middle

Fish Fry - February 4, 2011

In my Fish Fry this week, I check out DesignCon at the Santa Clara Convention Center, interview Brad Griffin from Cadence about Power Distribution Networks and try to find out why FPGAs are such bad team players when it comes to board design. Also this week, I answer questions from loyal listeners and offer up another fantastic nerdy giveaway.

If you like the idea of this new series, be sure to drop a comment in the box below. I appreciate all of your comments so far, and we will be working to enhance the Fish Fry each week – as long as you’re watching.
