Six Megatrends in Consumer Electonics

Fish Fry - January 7, 2011

In my Fish Fry this week, I investigate the megatrends driving consumer electronic design today. Also, I reveal the winner of the Texas Instruments Wireless Watch Development Kit and I announce a brand new super cool nerdy giveaway.  To participate in the nerdy giveaway this week, write your Haiku poem in the comments box below.

Join me for this week’s news wrap-up with my spin on the high-tech news of the week…  

If you like the idea of this new series, be sure to drop a comment in the box below. I appreciate all of your comments so far, and we will be working to enhance the Fish Fry each week – as long as you’re watching.

Speeding Up Large-Scale EM Simulation of ICs Without Compromising Accuracy

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

With growing on-chip RF content, electromagnetic (EM) simulation of passives is critical — from selecting the right RF design candidates to detecting parasitic coupling. Being on-chip, accurate EM analysis requires a tie in to the process technology with process design kits (PDKs) and foundry-certified EM simulation technology. Anything short of that could compromise the RFIC’s functionality. Learn how to get the highest-in-class accuracy and 10X faster analysis.

Maxim's Himalaya uSLIC Portfolio

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Maxim Integrated

With form factors continuing to shrink, most engineers are working hard to reduce the number of discrete components in their designs. Power supplies, in particular, are problematic - often requiring a number of large components. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with John Woodward of Maxim Integrated about how power modules can save board space, improve performance, and help reliability.
