The Next Frontier of Functional Verification

Breker and the Rising Star of Portable Stimulus

This week’s episode of Fish Fry runs the gamut of electronic design. First, check out how an Italian engineering student built a 3D printer for only twelve dollars! (Spoiler alert: He used recycled parts from three inkjet printers and a flatbed scanner). Next, Breker CEO Adnan Hamid joins us to discuss the controversy around portable stimulus representation models, the future of portable stimulus, and why he thinks we’re just scratching the surface of what portable stimulus can be. Closing out this week’s podcast episode, I take a closer look at choosing the right capacitor for your next SSD hold-up application.
