Programmable Power to the People

Micro Analog and On-Demand Power Management

by Amelia Dalton

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.  Read More

A New Round of Multicore Tools

Posted on 01/21/17 at 5:10 PM by KumarV

Learning the basics of parallel programming and the associated challenges is always going to enable the engineer to make better decisions. However, you would probably agree that this approach doesn't scale fast enough in a manual process. For times like…
