Compilers, Counterfeits, and Contests

In this week’s Fish Fry, I check out some recent rumblings in the world of EE venture capital and investigate why both Applied Materials and the CIA are interested in Infinite Power Solutions. Also this week, I look into the newest developments in compilers from Microchip Technology and examine a recent report by the US Senate Armed Services Committee about counterfeit parts used in military applications.

Also this week, I have a TI MSP-EXP430FR5739 Experimenter Board (courtesy of Mouser) to throw your way, but you’ll have to tune in to find out how to win.

NEUTRIK® FIBERFOX

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Neutrik

Fiber optic technology has seen exponential growth over the last couple years. Today, fiber optic technology is finding a place in more and more diverse applications worldwide. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and David Kuklinski from NEUTRIK® explore a revolutionary new kind of fiber optic technology called FIBERFOX. We take a closer look at the benefits that FIBERFOX brings to the table, why FIBERFOX's expanded beam technology makes it unlike any other fiber optic technology on the market today and how you can use FIBERFOX in your next design.
