Sensors on the Brain and FinFETs in the Game

Fish Fry is headed to the Land of Next this week – the next process nodes, the next big breakthrough in brain sensor technology, and the next Kickstarter investment you should consider. My guest is Wilbur Luo (Cadence) and we’re talking 16, 14, and 10nm, what’s in store for these next process nodes, and how the design challenges associated with FinFETs are going to keep us on our toes.

Also this week, I’ve got a brand new nerdy giveaway – the Microchip TCHIP003 chipKIT™ Starter Pak – courtesy of Mouser and Microchip Technology. You can enter to win one for your own by posting a comment on this week’s Fish Fry page.

Dissecting The Truth of RF DAC Resolution; Is It 14-Bits or 16?

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

This application note uses common data conversion theorems to analyze the impacts of resolution and sample rate in a band-limited signal generation application. The conclusion is that the SNR performance improvement, due to the 16-bit LVDS interface bus, provides improved signal-to-noise (SNR) over a 14-bit Interface bus.

SLX FPGA: Accelerate the Journey from C/C++ to FPGA

Sponsored by Silexica

High-level synthesis (HLS) brings incredible power to FPGA design. But harnessing the full power of HLS with FPGAs can be difficult even for the most experienced engineering teams. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Jordon Inkeles of Silexica about using the SLX FPGA tool to truly harness the power of HLS with FPGAs, getting better results faster - regardless of whether you are approaching from the hardware or software domain.
