Let’s Get Flexible

What do you think of when I say the word “flexibility?” Yoga? Bendy straws, maybe? Perhaps a Slinky™? I’m going to guess you probably didn’t say batteries and field programmable gate arrays! This week Fish Fry is all about flexibility in electronic design – from the most recent Mars Rover software upgrade, to the newest advancements in flexible battery technology.  Then, we’ll even chat a little bit about timing-driven partitioning of your next FPGA design.  In another installment of my Fish Fry executive interview series, I chat with Flexras CEO Hayder Mrbet about what FPGA partitioning is all about, why Flexras claims they can make your multiple-FPGA project a whole bunch easier, and how this France-based FPGA tool company came to be. 

Also this week, I have another super-cool XMEGA-A3BU Xplained microcontroller development kit (courtesy of Atmel) to give away, but you’ll have to listen to find out how to win.

[From the last episode: We looked at subroutines in computer programs.] We saw a couple weeks ago that some memories are big, but slow (flash memory). Others are fast, but not so big '€“ and they'€™re power-hungry to boot (SRAM). This sets up an interesting problem. When ...
