ARM TechCon Shakedown

Tools, IP and Processors, Oh My!

ARM TechCon was a hip and happenin’ show this year and I’ve got the interviews to prove it.  This week I interview Tony Xia and Amit Bhojraj from NXP Semiconductor about their new 49 cent 32-bit microcontroller and why they were encouraging designers to dismantle, maim and otherwise destroy their old 8- and 16-bit development boards.  From the tool side of the ARM community, I also interview Thomas Sporrong from IAR Systems about the newest version of the IAR Embedded Workbench and how IAR’s acquisition of Signum Systems expanded their already wide range of tool offerings.

I have a Xilinx Spartan-6 SP01 Evaluation Kit to give away this week, but you will have to listen to find out how to 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.

Switch to Simple with Klippon Relay
In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and Lars Hohmeier from Weidmüller explore the what, where, and how of Weidmüller's extensive portfolio of Klippon relays. They investigate the pros and cons of mechanical relays, the benefits that the Klippon universal range of relays brings to the table, and how Weidmüller's digital selection guide can help you choose the best relay solution for your next design.
