Digital to Analog and Back Again

This week’s Fish Fry is all about those persistent pesky power problems that plague our designs and what we can do to solve them. If you’re a digital guy or gal struggling to get into the analog game, or even if you’re an analog person trying your hand at digital design, this Fish Fry is for you. First, I interview Steve Logan (Xilinx) about how Xilinx has added analog ADCs to their recent development kits and how you can start designing with one. I also chat with Rob Chiacchia (Linear Technology) about the state of the art in digital power management.

I have yet another super cool MAX V CPLD Development Kit (courtesy of Altera) to give to one lucky winner 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.

Prognostic Health Management/Predictive Maintenance Solutions for Machines

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Advantech

Prognostic health management, also known as predictive maintenance, is a vital component of our industrial ecosystem. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Eric Wang from Advantech about the roles that data acquisition, data processing and artificial intelligence play in prognostic health management, the challenges of building these types of systems, and what kind of predictive maintenance solution would be the best fit for your next design.
