Robots, Emulators and Even More Mega Fun

Have you ever been sitting back in your cube, resting and having a coke after lunch thinkin’ “Hey, I really should get into the emulation business.” Oh, you haven’t? I guess that’s just me then. Yep, there are some certain aspects of electronic design that we should just let someone else deal with. This week my guest is EVE CEO and President Luc Burgun. Luc and I discuss what emulation is all about, where EVE fits into the grand scheme of EDA, and how emulators can help you debug your next design. Oh, and I officially challenge Luc to a karaoke face off.

Also this week, we’ve got a 13 ft Kinect-controlled robot, the newest acquisition happening in EDA, and an XMEGA-A3BU Xplained kit (courtesy of Atmel) to give away.

Synopsys PPA(V) Voltage Optimization

Sponsored by Synopsys

Performance-per-watt has emerged as one of the highest priorities in design quality, leading to a shift in technology focus and design power optimization methodologies. Variable operating voltage possess high potential in optimizing performance-per-watt results but requires a signoff accurate and efficient methodology to explore. Synopsys Fusion Design Platform™, uniquely built on a singular RTL-to-GDSII data model, delivers a full-flow voltage optimization and closure methodology to achieve the best performance-per-watt results for the most demanding semiconductor segments.

Current Sense Resistor - WFC & WFCP Series

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Vishay

If you are working on a telecom, consumer or industrial design, current sense resistors can give you a great way to detect and convert current to voltage. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Clinton Stiffler from Vishay about the what, where and how of Vishay’s WFC and WFCP current sense resistors. They investigate how these current sense resistors are constructed, how the flip-chip design of these current sense resistors reduces TCR compared to other chip resistors, and how you can get started using a Vishay current sense resistor in your next design.
