All You Can Eat: A Bountiful Buffet of EE

Ivo Bolsens Talks Programmable Platforms, Kilopass v. Sidense, and The World's Smallest Motor

In this week’s Fish Fry, I’ve got a bountiful buffet of EE beauty for you to sink your teeth into. I interview Ivo Bolsens (CTO and Senior Vice President – Xiinx) about the changing nature of FPGA design wins and why Xilinx is banking on its Zynq platform to transform the industry as we know it.

Also this week, I check in on the recent rounds of litigation between non-volatile memory IP suppliers Sidense and Kilopass and I dig into the details of the world’s smallest motor.

I have a Spartan-6 LX9 Microboard to give out, but you’ll have to listen to find out how to win.

In 1995, I attended a seminar in which the presenter told us that copper was dead.  This sort of statement is not new. The connector market is filled with armchair pundits who predict the demise of everything from D-Subminiature connectors (which are very much alive and ...
