Programmable Power to the People

Micro Analog and On-Demand Power Management

He’d been here before, many times. He had procrastinated until he couldn’t put it off any longer. It had to be done. After a few cans of Mountain Dew and a giant sigh, he dove in. The experience wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t great. I know you’ve been through it too. Choosing the right power supply for your next design can be a drag, searching through part numbers until your eyes glaze, only to come up with a solution that (most of the time) is still not quite right.  In this episode of Fish Fry, we welcome Kapil Shankar from AnDAPT. Kapil and I take an in-depth look at AnDAPT ‘s on-demand power management solution. Also in this week’s Kickstarter Corner, we check out a new fundraising campaign called JeVois: Open-Source Quad-Core Smart Machine Vision Camera that could bring open-source machine vision to your next Raspberry Pi or Arduino project.
