The Long ARM of Intel

In this week’s Fish Fry, I look at Intel’s ever-expanding reach into the world of electronic design. I interview Jarrod Siket about Netronome’s collaboration with Intel and I also investigate the recent announcement that Intel and Xilinx will be funding R&D at EDA startup Oasys Design Systems. This week I also chat with Tom DeSchutter of Synopsys about what ARM’s big.LITTLE is all about and how software can help with energy efficiency in mobile designs.

Did you know that a company in Dubai is offering push button pizza delivery? Its true! Where were they during my senior year thesis? Check out this week’s Fish Fry to learn more.

How to Fast-Charge Your Supercapacitor

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated (now part of Analog Devices)

Supercapacitors (or ultracapacitors) are suited for short charge and discharge cycles. They require high currents for fast charge as well as a high voltage with a high number in series as shown in two usage cases: an automatic pallet shuttle and a fail-safe backup system. In these and many other cases, the fast charge is provided by a flexible, high-efficiency, high-voltage, and high-current charger based on a synchronous, step-down, supercapacitor charger controller.

Silicon Lifecycle Management (SLM)

Sponsored by Synopsys

Wouldn’t it be great if we could keep on analyzing our IC designs once they are in the field? After all, simulation and lab measurements can never tell the whole story of how devices will behave in real-world use. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Randy Fish of Synopsys about gaining better insight into IC designs through the use of embedded monitors and sensors, and how we can enable a range of new optimizations throughout the lifecycle of our designs.
