Not Your Mom’s Embedded Design

Atmel’s Newest Advancements in Touchscreen Technology and Memory made from Jello

In this week’s Fish Fry, I investigate some new developments in embedded design.  I interview Sherif Hanna (Product Marketing Manager at Atmel) about the future of human-machine interfaces and how he thinks touchscreen capabilities help the embedded design community. I also dig into the details of a new Jello-like memory being created by North Carolina State University and how it may not only change what memory is made of, but also where it can be implemented.

I give away a STK600 Wireless Development Kit courtesy of Atmel, but you will have to listen to find out how to win.

Demo: Low-Power Machine Learning Inference with DesignWare ARC EM9D Processor IP

Sponsored by Synopsys

Applications that require sensing on a continuous basis are always on and often battery operated. In this video, the low-power ARC EM9D Processors run a handwriting character recognition neural network graph to infer the letter that is written.

New package technology improves EMI and thermal performance with smaller solution size

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Power supply designers have a new tool in their effort to achieve balance between efficiency, size, and thermal performance with DC/DC power modules. The Enhanced HotRod™ QFN package technology from Texas Instruments enables engineers to address design challenges with an easy-to-use footprint that resembles a standard QFN. This new package type combines the advantages of flip-chip-on-lead with the improved thermal performance presented by a large thermal die attach pad (DAP).

Transforming 400V Power for SELV Systems

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Vicor

Converting from distribution-friendly voltages like 400V down to locally-useful voltages can be a tough engineering challenge. In SELV systems, many teams turn to BCM converter modules because of their efficiency, form factor, and ease of design-in. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Ian Masza of Vicor about transforming 400V into power for SELV systems.
