V for Verification

DVCon 2012 Breakdown

Welcome to the soothing waters of verification. Jump right in, the water is warm! This week’s Fish Fry is all about design verification and DVCon 2012. I sift through all of the details of this year’s show: the keynote, the various announcements unveiled at the show, the happy hour expo show hours and even the eerie decor of the Doubletree Hotel.  In a special DVCon interview double header I chat with both Shakeel Jeeawoody (Blue Pearl Software) about getting your constraints right for HDL-based designs, and I also chat with Anupam Bakshi (CEO – Agnisys) about how Agnisys is attacking a brand new part of the EDA/verification market. 

I also have yet another ultra fantastic MAX V CPLD Development kit (courtesy of Altera) to give away this week, but you’ll have to tune in to find out how to win.

How LiDAR Delivers Critical Distance-Sensing for Self-Driving Cars

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

Commercialization of autonomous cars represents an exciting journey ahead, and LiDAR technology in ADAS is right in line to become a significant player in the future of autonomous vehicles. Its performance depends on the optical front-end, as well as how the signal is transmitted through the signal chain and then processed. An important component in this signal chain is the transimpedance amplifier (TIA). Read more for an overview of how LiDAR works and what to look for in an effective TIA.
