Making The Pieces Fit

Distribution Series Part I

In the first of a series of distribution-focused Fish Fry episodes, I interview Alex Iuorio and Jeff Ittel from Avnet Embedded about how Avnet used a start-up mentality to get this new embedded division up and running. They discuss, among other things, how they see distribution playing a vital role in each step of the electronics design and supply chain. Then, in keeping with the distribution theme, I look into the ramifications of counterfeit chip production and highlight three overall challenges we face in protecting ourselves from counterfeit components.

Also, I check out the biggest news of the week and how one of three key elements of this announcement ties into the world of superheroes.

I have another Amazon.com gift certificate to give out, but you’ll have to listen to find out how you can win.

Using Intel FPGA to Develop Video and Vision Solutions

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Intel

Today’s video applications require enormous amounts of compute performance on small power budgets. And, the wide variety of specifications, rates, and resolutions makes flexibility a key design requirement. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Omi Oliyide of Intel about how Intel FPGAs are ideal to take on even the most challenging video and vision designs, and explain how you can get started with this exciting technology in your next project.
