What Lies Beneath

TI's Tiny Sensors, Icahn Wins (this time) and Rambus' Latest Legal Woes

In this week’s Fish Fry, I check out Texas Instruments’ itty bitty new digital sensor and investigate how this new technology may help usher in a new era of micro sensors and micro mechanics.  Also this week, I look into the most recent battle between Carl Icahn and the Board of Directors at Mentor Graphics, while I try to sort through the latest litigation rumblings over at Rambus.

I have a brand new nerdy giveaway this week…but you’ll just have to tune in to find out how you can win!

How MediaTek Optimizes SI Design with Cadence Optimality Explorer and Clarity 3D Solver

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

In the era of 5G/6G communication, signal integrity (SI) design considerations are important in high-speed interface design. MediaTek’s design process usually relies on human intuition, but with Cadence’s Optimality Intelligent System Explorer and Clarity 3D Solver, they’ve increased design productivity by 75X. The Optimality Explorer’s AI technology not only improves productivity, but also provides helpful insights and answers.

The Future of Intelligent Devices is Here
Sponsored by Alif Semiconductor
In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and Henrik Flodell from Alif Semiconductor explore the what, where, and how of Alif’s Ensemble 32-bit microcontrollers and fusion processors. They examine the autonomous intelligent power management, high on-chip integration and isolated security subsystem aspects of these 32-bit microcontrollers and fusion processors, the role that scalability plays in this processor family, and how you can utilize them for your next embedded design.
