MEMS the Word

Did you know that there are now more connected devices than people in the world? One of the biggest motivating factors pushing innovative development in these connected devices is MEMS. This week we’re checking out all the nerdy goodness that the 2012 MEMS Executive Congress has to offer. I chat with a couple of the winners of the MEMS Technology Showcase about how their new products are launching an era of “MEMS Inside the Machine”. I also talk with Benedetto Vigna (STMicroelectronics) about the trends in MEMS-enabled designs, where STMicroelectronics fits into the MEMS ecosystem, and where in the world you’ll find the best skiing. 

Also this week, I review “Stuff You May Have Missed” (MEMS Executive Congress Edition) and give everyone another chance to win an LX9 Spartan-6 MicroBoard courtesy of Xilinx.

Navigating design challenges: block/chip design-stage verification

Sponsored by Siemens Digital Industries Software

Explore the future of IC design with the Calibre Shift left initiative. In this paper, author David Abercrombie reveals how Siemens is changing the game for block/chip design-stage verification by moving Calibre verification and reliability analysis solutions further left in the design flow, including directly inside your P&R tool cockpit. Discover how you can reduce traditional long-loop verification iterations, saving time, improving accuracy, and dramatically boosting productivity.

Maximizing High Power Density and Efficiency in EV-Charging Applications
Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Infineon
In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and Daniel Dalpiaz from Infineon talk about trends in the greater electrical vehicle charging landscape, typical block diagram components, and tradeoffs between discrete devices versus power modules. They also discuss choices between IGBT’s and Silicon Carbide, the advantages of advanced packaging techniques in both power discrete and power module solutions, and how reliability is increasingly important due to demands for more charging cycles per day.
