Breaking The Law

One MEMS at a Time

MEMS is everywhere. From your smartphone to your television to that gesture controlled game system that I didn’t get for Christmas. In honor of the Consumer Electronics Show taking place in Las Vegas next week, we’re talking about innovation in the MEMS marketplace. This week my first guests are Alissa Fitzgerald (AMFitzgerald) and Peter Himes (Silex). We’re gonna get down to brass tacks about MEMS and how you can get your next MEMS design up and running. Keeping with the MEMS theme, my second guest this week is Tom Flynn (Coventor). Tom and I talk about the tricky dance of EDA tools for MEMS designs. It’s complicated, but Tom will show you the steps. 

Also this week, I’m giving everyone another chance to enter to win a Zedboard courtesy of Xilinx but you’ll have to listen to find out how you can win.

This week it is CDNLive Israel. But last week it was Jasper User Group (JUG). At it happens, Jasper was one of the early companies to sign up with SemiWiki when we started it, so I've been going to Jasper User Group for longer than either I've been at Cadence or Jas...
