How Happy is Your Chassis?

“If the power supplies aren’t happy, nothing else in the system is happy” – Ken Grob, Elma Electronic

What do drone dodgeball, chassis management, and RF and optical backplane standards have in common? This week’s Fish Fry podcast of course!  First, we check out how the University of Zurich is changing the course of drone development with a little help from event cameras, specialized … Read More → "How Happy is Your Chassis?"

Small is Beautiful: Trends in Small Rugged Form Factors and Making Fossil Fuels into Diamonds

You’ve got to think about big things while you’re doing small things, so that all the small things go in the right direction. – Alvin Toffler

What if we could use something that is universally hated to create something that most everyone loves? In this weeks podcast, we start things off with an investigation into how a group of researchers have created the first “ … Read More → "Small is Beautiful: Trends in Small Rugged Form Factors and Making Fossil Fuels into Diamonds"

Designing High-Reliability Analog and Mixed-Signal ICs for Mission-Critical Applications  Designing products for reliability and longevity requires a different mindset – and a different tool set from the more common “just get it out the door” engineering methodology. We need to focus on all phases of product life, and do a diligent analysis of the mechanisms that can lead to premature failure in the … Read More → "Designing High-Reliability Analog and Mixed-Signal ICs for Mission-Critical Applications"
New Defense and Aerospace Products – Mouser and VicorIf you’re working on mil-standard systems and are worried about SWaP-C (and who isn’t?) you know that getting a reliable, off-the-shelf DC to DC converter and filter are critical to the success of your system. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Kai Johnstad of Vicor about solving mil-standard COTS power problems. … Read More → "New Defense and Aerospace Products – Mouser and Vicor"
Altera Stratix 10 SecuritySecurity is a key issue in just about every system design today. And, in FPGA-based systems you need robust security features built into the FPGA itself. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and Ryan Kenny of Altera discuss the new security features in Altera’s Stratix 10 FPGAs and how they help you address … Read More → "Altera Stratix 10 Security"
SystemVision® Multi-discipline System Verification DatasheetThe SystemVision multi-discipline collaboration environment lets you explore concepts, validate performance specifications, investigate architectural partitions, and integrate implementation-level details, all in an easy-to-use virtual prototyping environment. Focus on a single design domain, or combine multiple domains, for full-system verification.
Modernizing System DevelopmentAllowing disconnected development and waiting until the latest program stages to perform systems integration and connect all the pieces is a high risk situation, yet one all too common in today’s product realization process. Bringing domain expertise together as appropriate throughout a project’s development process is imperative for project success.  This paper explores a more … Read More → "Modernizing System Development"
New Approach to Manage Electrical ComplexityToday’s competitive and challenging environment, thought-leaders are recommending a shift to systems engineering. Using a systems engineering approach could help OEMs maintain product quality, reduce costs, manage change, and achieve time to market. This paper talks about applying systems engineering principles using the Capital tool suite to address these issues.
