Eye diagrams, Bert Scopes and more SerDes than anyone knows what to do with…what could it be? DesignCon of course. In this week’s Fish Fry, I look into why DesignCon was so popular this year and why signal integrity issues were the un-offcial theme of the show. I also interview Brad Griffin of Cadence about why we need power distribution analysis and why he thinks DesignCon is the best show of the year.
I also have another MAX V CPLD Development Kit courtesy of Altera to give away this week, but you’ll have to listen to the end of the broadcast to find out how to win.
