IoT with a Side of Pi

myDevices and the World’s First Drag-and-Drop IoT Project Builder

by Amelia Dalton

In a special Maker Edition of Fish Fry, we're serving up a little internet of things with a side of Raspberry Pi. My guest Kevin Bromber (CEO - myDevices) and I check out Cayenne - the world's first drag and drop IoT project builder: what sets it apart from the rest of the IoT pack and how you can get your next Raspberry Pi-fueled IoT design up and running in mere minutes. Also this week, we take a closer look at a Kickstarter campaign that aims to take your drone dreams to a whole new level.  Read More

What do you think of PNI Sensors' approach to reducing GPS-reading power?

Xilinx 1, Intel 0

Posted on 02/06/16 at 1:06 PM by beercandyman

I'll just point out that TSMC 16nm is really just 20nm with a finfet. I'll also point out that the latest part from Xilinx is just a little bigger than their last part. Altera did a big change in the architecture of the Stratix 10. For example single prec…

Magnets Help the Harvest

Posted on 02/04/16 at 10:07 PM by TotallyLost

In the first case with the fan and magnets, anything that increases loading of the fan, will incur losses in the fan motor, in addition to what is coupled off.

Now assuming you really need to move the air for cooling something, then the proper engineer…

Cadence Tensilica Vision P5

Intelligent vision systems represent some of today's biggest embedded design challenges. The enormous processing power required combined with small energy budgets rules out most conventional applications processors. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Dennis Crespo from Cadence Design Systems about the new Tensilica Vision P5 processors - designed specifically to meet the needs of embedded vision applications.

Introducing Palladium Z1 Enterprise Emulation Platform

Emulation is critical in the development of just about every complex IC these days, but most emulation systems are burdened with proprietary standards and form factors that don't scale well. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton talks with Frank Schirrmeister of Cadence Design Systems about the new Palladium Z1 datacenter-class emulation system, which was designed with the capacity and scalability required for today's most challenging designs.

Analog to Digital Conversion

High speed analog signals pose special challenges for analog-to-digital conversion (ADC). Applications like software-defined radio, radar, instrumentation, and high-speed wireless require ADC that is high-performance, high-accuracy, and low power. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Trent Butcher of Microchip Technology about solving the issues of high-speed ADC.

M8/M12 Connector System

For industrial-grade applications, consumer-style connectors just don't cut it. You'd never use RJ45 where you really care about ruggedness or reliability. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Tom Wess of TE Connectivity about M8 and M12 high-reliability connectivity solutions that will keep your system operating smoothly under harsh conditions.

Altera 2.5Gb Ethernet IP

Even though the newest, fastest standards get all the press, most of the work in the world is being done by standards like 2.5G Ethernet. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Juwayriyah Hussain of Altera about Altera's IP for 2.5G Ethernet. It'll have you up and running with Ethernet on your next design in no time.

Meet ARTY: the $99 FPGA Development Kit from Xilinx

Have you been wanting to try FPGA design? Were FPGA development boards and tools always too expensive and difficult to use? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Darren Zacher and Jim Burnham of Xilinx about ARTY, a new, easy-to-use $99 FPGA-based embedded development kit from Xilinx.
