In today’s mobile designs, displays are one of the most important components in differentiating your product. As a result, more people are designing high-resolution displays into mobile devices. But, adding a high-res display to your design can be a complex task. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia chats with Pavel Klinger (GLOBALFOUNDRIES) about GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ solutions for the … Read More → "Advanced Smart Display Solutions"
Power consumption is one of the key drivers in system design today, and it’s about time we had a way to estimate and verify the power used by our design. In this episode of Chalk TalkHD Amelia chats with Lauro Rizzatti (Synopsys) about how to verify and estimate power consumption with the ZeBu emulator.
When it comes to custom IC design, one size most definitely does not fit all. Different applications call for specialized IP, tools, and even semiconductor processes. But, sorting through the options can be a daunting process. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Pavel Klinger from GLOBALFOUNDRIES about market-specific solutions that … Read More → "Market-Specific Custom IC Solutions"
In this episode of Chalk TalkHD Amelia chats with Andy Caldwell (Tabula) about putting an end to the oppressive reign of timing closure terror. Tabula’s Spacetime architecture – it turns out – besides giving us crazy performance for our high-bandwidth designs – also makes timing closure drop-dead easy.

In parts 1 & 2 of this 3-part Chalk Talk series, we talked about how Triad Semiconductor can save you 75%, or even as much as 99% in your next mixed-signal ASIC design. But, what good is savings if you don’t know what you can design with it? In this third episode of our 3-part Chalk … Read More → "How to Design a Sigma Delta Mixer Circuit"
What do you do when plain-old FPGAs leave too much on the table to handle your next bandwidth challenge efficiently? In this episode of Chalk TalkHD Amelia chats with Christian Plante (Tabula) about Tabula’s new ABAX2 devices – based on their innovative Spacetime architecture. ABAX2 is fabricated on the latest Intel 22nm Tri-Gate technology, and can give you an … Read More → "Solving the 100Gbps Challenge with ABAX2"
In part 1 of this 3-part series, we talked about how you can save 75% on your next mixed-signal chip design – which was great, but we think we can do better than that. In this episode of Chalk TalkHD Amelia chats with Reid Wender of Triad Semiconductor about how you can dramatically reduce design costs and … Read More → "How To Save 99% on Your Next Mixed Signal ASIC Design (part 2 of a 3-part series)"
Do you think developing a custom mixed-signal chip for your application is beyond your team’s reach? Too expensive, complicated, and risky? Think again! In this episode of Chalk TalkHD Amelia chats with Reid Wender of Triad Semiconductor about how you can dramatically reduce design costs and complexity – bringing that custom chip design within reach. In part … Read More → "How To Save 75% on Your Next ASIC Design"
In this episode of Chalk TalkHD Amelia chats with Bob Potock (Kozio) about how you can save yourself a bunch of headache at prototype time and how Kozio’s VTOS (Verification and Test Operating System) can solve all of your embedded design prototyping problems. Click the link below to download the free whitepaper: Introducing VTOS for … Read More → "The Hardware Prototype Arrives — Find Design Errors Fast and Improve Design Quality"
Building a hybrid computing platform from scratch is a huge and complicated project. Luckily, somebody has already done that work for you. In this episode of Chalk Talk HD Amelia chats with Justin Braun (4DSP) about how you can use pre-designed platforms to dramatically simplify these complex computing and data acquisition problems.
