EDA All Around

DVCon, Aldec Meets Hitatchi, and Parties Galore

In honor of DVCon this week, we’re rounding up all the verification jokes we can muster. “I just finished verifying my multicores and boy are my ARMs tired.” Or maybe: “How many verification engineers does it take to change a lightbulb?” “None, of course – but they will be able to confirm that the bulb has actually been changed.” Or how about: “Seriously folks – take my dev-kit… Please!”

In Fish Fry this week, we’re looking at the themes, parties, and verification technologies at DVCon 2013. Keeping with the EDA theme, I also chat with Dmitry Melnick (Aldec) about the details of Aldec’s recent collaboration with Hitatchi and why he thinks traditional coding styles are no longer adequate for our multi-million gate FPGA designs.

I have a Microchip chipKIT Educational Starter Pack to give away (courtesy of Newark element14) to one lucky listener this week.

Demo: Inuitive NU4000 SoC with ARC EV Processor Running SLAM and CNN

Sponsored by Synopsys

See Inuitive’s NU4000 3D imaging and vision processor in action. The SoC supports high-quality 3D depth processor engine, SLAM accelerators, computer vision, and deep learning by integrating Synopsys ARC EV processor. In this demo, the NU4000 demonstrates simultaneous 3D sensing, SLAM and CNN functionality by mapping out its environment and localizing the sensor while identifying the objects within it.

High-Performance Motor Control Solutions Through Integration

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Qorvo

Brushless motors have taken over the market for a huge number of applications these days. But, it’s easy to blow up your BOM cost with all the motor control and power management components required. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Marc Sousa of Qorvo about the Power Application Controller (PAC) that can lower your BOM, trim down your component list, and give you several other benefits as well.
