From Russia With Love

Saddle up comrades, we’re heading over to the mighty land of Russia. In our first story, we’re delving into the sci-fi-esque details of the “2045 Initiative”, examining how they plan on achieving human immortality by 2045, and investigating the inner workings of their first android prototype “Alissa”. Then, in another Russia-related story, we look into a new software-for-chartity fundraiser launched by Excelsior Software and tell you how you can participate in this program. Also this week, I interview Rob Frissel (Atmel) about the most recent advances in touchscreen technology for laptops and notebooks, how LCD noise comes into play, and how soon we can use these new technological advances in our own designs.

I’ve got another LX9 Spartan-6 Microboard (courtesy of Xilinx) to give away this week but you’ll have to listen to find out how you can enter to win.

[From the last episode: We looked at CNNs for vision as well as other neural networks for other applications.] We'€™re going to take a quick detour into math today. For those of you that have done advanced math, this may be a review, or it might even seem to be talking down...

Cloud Computing for Electronic Design (Are We There Yet?)

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

When your project is at crunch time, a shortage of server capacity can bring your schedule to a crawl. But, the rest of the year, having a bunch of extra servers sitting around idle can be extremely expensive. Cloud-based EDA lets you have exactly the compute resources you need, when you need them. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Craig Johnson of Cadence Design Systems about Cadence’s cloud-based EDA solutions.
