Microsoft's New Tablet Arrives on the Scene and Atrenta Rules The Roost

In this week’s Fish Fry I check out Microsoft’s new Surface tablet and investigate how this late-comer to the tablet game might have the potential to really disrupt the competition.  Also this week, I talk with Mike Gianfagna (Atrenta) about how Atrenta is helping ARM with AMBA bus configuration, assisting TSMC with IP testing, and working with Xilinx in their Vivado Tool Suite. Mike and I fit in a little chat about their jazzy reception at the DAC Conference.

I also have another XMEGA-A3BU Xplained kit (courtesy of Atmel) but you’ll have to tune in to find out how to win.
