Making Analog Fun

The Life and Times of Jim Williams

In this week’s Fish Fry, I recount the engineering accolades, accomplishments, and artistic endeavors of analog guru Jim Williams. I interview Bob Dobkin (Linear Technology co-founder, Vice President, Engineering & Chief Technical Officer) about Jim Williams’ work at Linear Technology, Jim’s passions outside the office, and what we should all take away from Jim’s life story.

Also this week, I chat with Lihn Hong, Marketing Vice President of Kilopass about their non-volatile memory and how this offering may just be better than your standard flash interface.

You’ll want to jump on this week’s nerdy giveaway as well…but you’ll have to listen to find out what it is and how to win!

i.MX RT1170

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and NXP Semiconductors

Dual Core microcontrollers can bring a lot of benefits to today’s modern embedded designs in order to keep all of our design requirements in balance. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Patrick Kennedy from NXP about why newer design requirements for today’s connected embedded systems are making this balancing act even harder than ever before and how the i.MX RT1170 can help solve these problems with its heterogeneous dual cores, MIPI interface, multi-core low power strategy and SRAM PUF technology can make all the difference in your next embedded design.
