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.

Demo: Inuitive NU4000 SoC with ARC EV Processor Running SLAM and CNN

Sponsored by Synopsys

Autonomous vehicles, robotics, augmented and virtual reality all require simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) to build a map of the surroundings. Combining SLAM with a neural network engine adds intelligence, allowing the system to identify objects and make decisions. In this demo, Synopsys ARC EV processor’s vision engine (VPU) accelerates KudanSLAM algorithms by up to 40% while running object detection on its CNN engine.

Small Cell 5G Systems

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Qorvo

5G brings a bewildering array of issues in small cell design - with small cells stepping in to handle the heavy lifting in the numerous places macro cells can’t reach. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Suma Kapilavai of Qorvo about tackling the variety of massive MIMO and beamforming challenges that 5G implementation brings to small cell design.
