From Cradle to Floor

Prototyping, Functional Verification, and Body Heat Power

Headlamp? Check. Spelunking gear? Check. Map of your next design from prototype to production? Well, hmmmm. We’ve all been there at one time or another: “Nice place to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there.” This week we’re getting into the nitty gritty details of the prototyping phase of our designs. My guest is Bob Potock (Kozio) and we’re gonna chat about why you really should consider functional verification for your next embedded design project.

Also this week, I’m checking out the newest innovation in thermoelectric energy harvesting from Perpetua Power Solution Technologies and giving everyone another chance to win a copy of “FRAM For Dummies.”

A key component of any high-speed signal path is the interconnect.  Design engineers must identify the right connector (or connectors) and the best performance for the application. At 56 Gbps PAM4 data rates (and higher), connector selection becomes more challenging. Interco...
