Doing RF with digital CMOS processes can be tricky. If you’re adding things like vehicular WiFi to your next design, it can be even trickier. You need the right IP and process support to get the results you want. In this episode of Chalk TalkHD Amelia Dalton chats with Fayyaz Singaporewala (GLOBALFOUNDRIES) and Mats Carlsson (Catena) … Read More → "GLOBALFOUNDRIES RFCMOS Solutions and Catena WiFi Solutions"
Just about every design needs one – that magic, do-anything part that can connect nearly any two things together and can aggregate all those messy, left-over functions on our board. Today’s low density PLDs have remarkable capabilities at a tiny cost and power budget. In this episode of Chalk Talk HD, Amelia Dalton chats with … Read More → "Design @ MachXO2 Speed"
In this episode of Chalk TalkHD Amelia chats with Lauro Rizzatti of EvE about the latest in emulation technology and explains how you can use emulation to dramatically accelerate software development, which is becoming the most time-consuming part of SoC design.

Sometimes, it really feels like our design project needs a Vault. When we have a project crunch, things tend to get out of control and messy. We end up wasting a lot of work and having to re-invent things that it seems like we’ve already designed before. In this episode of Chalk TalkHD Amelia chats … Read More → "Vault-Driven Electronics Design"
Nanowatts and microcontrollers are normally two words you don’t see together, but in this Chalk Talk HD we are going to use nanowatts and microcontrollers in the SAME SENTENCE – over and over. In this episode, Amelia chats with Jason Tollefson of Microchip Technology about a radical new line of microcontrollers from Microchip that combine amazing processing … Read More → "Super Low Power MCUs: NanoWatt XLP Technology"

Does the definition of “FPGA” seem like a moving target? Over the past few years, there has been phenomenal progress in FPGA technology – going from simple glue logic to impressive programmable systems-on-chip. Today’s FPGAs are some of the most powerful and flexible devices ever built. But, what will your FPGA look like ten years … Read More → "It’s 2022: Do You Know What Your FPGA Is?"
One of the most basic (and most often overlooked) aspects of high-reliability system design is getting reliable power to all of our components. We need the right kind of power at the right places – at the right times, and in the right order. We need to handle power-up, power-down, and reset cases (among others). … Read More → "Power Supply Management in High-Availability Systems"
Neutrons are coming for you and you’d better be prepared. Whether we like it or not, SEUs (Single Event Upsets) are becoming a bigger and bigger problem for our designs, especially for high realibility systems. If you thought SEUs couldn’t mess up your next design because you aren’t designing something destined for space, you need … Read More → "High-Reliability in FPGA Design – SEU Mitigation"

In the video above, it might not appear that much is taking place, but just like with transformers there is “more than meets the eye.” Alright, that was corny, and I am mildly ashamed, but Nanosecond Event Detection for shock and vibration is nothing to be ashamed...

Let's face it: We're addicted to SRAM. It's big, it's power-hungry, but it's fast. And no matter how much we complain about it, we still use it. Because we don't have anything better in the mainstream yet. We've looked at attempts to improve conven...
