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.

Achronix VectorPath Accelerator Card Uses PCIe Gen4 x16 to Communicate with AMD Ryzen PC

Sponsored by Achronix

In this demonstration, the Achronix VectorPath™ accelerator card connects to an AMD Ryzen based PC using PCIe Gen4 x16 interface. The host PC issues commands to have the Speedster™7t FPGA on the VectorPath accelerator card write and read to external GDDR6 memory on the board. These data transactions are performed using the Speedster7t FPGA’s 2D network on chip or NoC which eliminates the need to write complex RTL code to design the host PC to GDDR6 memory interface.

The Gateway to Connected Intelligent Vehicles

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and NXP Semiconductors

Connectivity is going to play a vital role in the future of connected and autonomous vehicles. One of the keys to the success of our future automotive designs will be the incorporation of service-oriented gateways. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Brian Carlson from NXP about the role that service-oriented gateways will play in the future of connected and autonomous vehicles and the details of NXP’s new S32G2 vehicle network processors that are going to make all of this possible.
