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.

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.
