Gesturing For Control

Microchip Takes On Gesture Control

In honor of Black Friday, Fish Fry is storming the gates and grabbing all the embedded designs we can get our grubby little hands on. OK, not really. We’re going to wait just one more year to buy that new touchscreen embedded design, because by then, touch might have already been taken right out of the equation. Yep, we’re talking about gesture control this week. My guest is Fanie Duvenhage (Director of Human Machine Interface Division at Microchip Technology). Fanie and I are going to explore what this new 3D gesture controller is all about, why this GestIC chip is different (and cooler) than current camera-based gesture recognition interfaces out there, and how you can get your hands on a GestIC development kit so you can start designing with one.

Also this week, give everyone one more chance to win a Spartan-6 LX9 Microboard courtesy of Xilinx.

How MediaTek Optimizes SI Design with Cadence Optimality Explorer and Clarity 3D Solver

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

In the era of 5G/6G communication, signal integrity (SI) design considerations are important in high-speed interface design. MediaTek’s design process usually relies on human intuition, but with Cadence’s Optimality Intelligent System Explorer and Clarity 3D Solver, they’ve increased design productivity by 75X. The Optimality Explorer’s AI technology not only improves productivity, but also provides helpful insights and answers.

FleClear: TDK’s Transparent Conductive Ag Film
Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and TDK
In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and Chris Burket from TDK investigate the what, where, and how of TDK’s transparent conductive Ag film called FleClear. They examine the benefits that FleClear brings to the table when it comes to transparency, surface resistance and haze. They also chat about how FleClear compares to other similar solutions on the market today and how you can utilize FleClear in your next design.
