“I think everybody understands how important the cloud is.” – Marc Benioff
They say every cloud has a silver lining but does every silver lining have a cloud? In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, Craig Johnson (Cadence Design Systems) joins us to discuss a variety of cloud strategies. We investigate how priorities and usage models should influence our choice of cloud models and why different … Read More → "Up Up and Away"
Intel announced this week that they have begun shipping the first of their new Agilex FPGAs to early-access customers. This moves us into what we historically think of as the “head-to-head” phase of the competition between the two biggest FPGA suppliers. Xilinx shipped their first “Versal ACAP” FPGAs back in June, so, after a very long and contentious “who is going to ship first?” battle, it … Read More → "High-End FPGA Showdown – Part 1"
Two ongoing questions have plagued analog design for many years:
- How can we design analog circuits more quickly and more portably?
- How can we keep up with the growth in circuit size while still providing gold-standard sign-off simulation in a “reasonable” time? The meaning of “reasonable” being somewhat fluid…</ … Read More → "Analog Advancements"
In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, Judy Warner gives us a special sneak peek into this year’s AltiumLive PCB Design Summit. Judy and I discuss the details of this third annual PCB design conference, how the goals of this conference have evolved over the years, and why Judy hopes this event will become the PCB Village Square of the EE industry. Also this week, we investigate … Read More → "PCB Town Square"
Security was huge at this summer’s DAC. By that, I don’t mean that you had to get frisked to get in; I mean that it was a hot topic of discussion. It came together at a luncheon hosted by the Accellera standards body, with further depth in a separate discussion with Accellera. The highest-level take-away would be… that we – and you – have a lot … Read More → "How Do We Tackle Chip Security?"
“Here’s your ticket pack your bag: time for jumpin’ overboard.
The transportation is here.
Close enough but not too far, Maybe you know where you are.” – Talking Heads
In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we investigate the complexities of data processing in coming age of 5G. Wade Smith (ANSYS) joins us to discuss the challenges of 5G … Read More → "From Chip to City and Back Again"
