All You Need Is Love

(and Some Good Tools)

PCB problems got you all tangled up and blue? Never fear, all you need is love. Well, that and some good tools. This week my guest is Steve McKinney (Mentor Graphics). Steve and I are going to talk to about Mentor’s HyperLynx tool suite and why the newest features of this tool may make those pesky PCB problems a thing of the past. Also this week, check out why power and system management decisions might best be made sooner than later.

Also this week, I have another MAX V CPLD Development Kit courtesy of Altera to give away, and I introduce a brand new Nerdy Giveaway contest for DVCon, but you’ll have to tune in to find out how to win.

Configure the charge and discharge current separately in a reversible buck/boost regulator

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated (now part of Analog Devices)

The design of a front-end converter can be made less complicated when minimal extra current overhead is required for charging the supercapacitor. This application note explains how to configure the reversible buck/boost converter to achieve a lighter impact on the system during the charging phase. Setting the charge current requirement to the minimum amount keeps the discharge current availability intact.

Power over Ethernet - Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Microchip

Power over Ethernet has come a long way since its initial creation way back in 1997. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Alan Jay Zwiren from Microchip about the past, present, and future of power over ethernet including details of how a PoE system works, why midspans are crucial for power over ethernet connectivity and why Microchip can be your one stop shop for your next PoE design needs.
