Calypto’s Power Optimization and the Find Amelia at Design West Contest

In this week’s Fish Fry, I dig into the multi-layered world of power optimization with Shawn McCloud (Vice President, Marketing – Calypto).  Shawn and I discuss the problems surrounding power reduction in today’s smaller geometries, and why he thinks power optimization is ignored by many designers. I even grill Shawn about why he has a ban on high heels at his house.  Also this week, I unveil the details of EE Journal’s first conference contest called “Find Amelia at Design West” and even throw out a couple super secret hints on how you can find me and win a MAX V CPLD Development Kit (courtesy of Altera) right there at the show.

Prototyping Billion-Gate Designs with Protium X1 Enterprise Prototyping System

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

FPGA-based Prototyping certainly isn’t new. And our needs for early firmware and software development, memory modeling and advanced data capture haven’t gotten any better, if anything - they have gotten worse. Hi, I’m Amelia Dalton - host of Chalk Talk. Today my Juergen Jaeger from Cadence Design Systems and I are talking about the next generation of FPGA-based prototyping and how the first Scalable, Data Center-Optimized Enterprise Prototyping System can get your system design up and running faster than ever before.
