Connecting the Dots

One Embedded Design at a Time

In this week’s Fish Fry (sponsored by Altera), I look into how Texas Instruments is ushering in a new wave of WiFi-enabled devices with their SimpleLink family of products. I chat with Matt Kurtz (Texas Instruments) and dig into the details about this new family of products — from what design challenges SimpleLink addresses, to the unexpected designs that could come from this technology. Also this week, I check out a new way to lose money: by betting on high tech announcements.

I have another MAX V CPLD Development Kit courtesy of Altera to give out this week, but you’ll have to listen to find out how to win.

PCIe Gen5 x16 Running on the Achronix VectorPath Accelerator Card

Sponsored by Achronix

In this demo, Achronix engineers show the VectorPath Accelerator Card successfully linking up to a PCIe Gen5 x16 host and write data to and read data from GDDR6 memory. The VectorPath accelerator card featuring the Speedster7t FPGA is one of the first FPGAs that can natively support this interface within its PCIe subsystem. Speedster7t FPGAs offer a revolutionary new architecture that Achronix developed to address the highest performance data acceleration challenges.

ROHM Automotive LED Driver IC

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and ROHM Semiconductor

There has been a lot of innovation in the world of automotive designs over the last several years and this innovation also includes the LED lights at the rear of our vehicles. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Nick Ikuta from ROHM Semiconductor about ROHM’s automotive LED driver ICs. They take a closer look at why their four channel outputs, energy sharing function, and integrated protection functions make these new driver ICs a great solution for rear lamp design.
