Microsoft's New Tablet Arrives on the Scene and Atrenta Rules The Roost

In this week’s Fish Fry I check out Microsoft’s new Surface tablet and investigate how this late-comer to the tablet game might have the potential to really disrupt the competition.  Also this week, I talk with Mike Gianfagna (Atrenta) about how Atrenta is helping ARM with AMBA bus configuration, assisting TSMC with IP testing, and working with Xilinx in their Vivado Tool Suite.
