Newark™ element14 Celebrates National Engineers Week

This week’s Fish Fry is brought to you by you. Yes, you. The DSP dude. The Coder chick. The Analog Grand Master. We’re celebrating engineers in all shapes, sizes, and process nodes. With National Engineers Week just around the corner, my guest this week is Tamara Jurgenson (Newark element14), and we’re gonna chat about Newark element14’s month-long engineering party.

I’m giving everyone the chance to win a LaunchPad Evaluation Kit courtesy of Texas Instruments, but you’ll have to listen to find out how to enter to win.

A New Perspective on Materialism

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and KEMET

When choosing capacitors or other passive components, it’s easy to get bogged down in the datasheets. But, how often do you think about the properties of the materials these components are made from? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and Patrik Kalbermatten of KEMET take a fascinating look at material classification, the role of ferrite in systems, and the development of metal composite piezo ceramic powders to give us sustainable sources for our component materials.
