FPGA Tools, Marketing Malarkey Goggles, and More

FPGA Tools – can’t live with them, can’t design without them. This week’s Fish Fry is about ending the first part of that meme and how Xilinx is hoping to make our design tool experience a whole bunch easier. My guest is Tim Vanevenhoven (Senior Marketing Manager – Xilinx) and we’re going to chat about design abstraction, IP integration, and how the FPGA tool community is working together to provide more powerful, easier to use solutions. Also this week, I give a sneak preview of my previously top-secret, special-purpose augmented reality glasses – and I’ll tell you how I plan to use them to cut through the marketing fog at the upcoming Design West show. Hmmm… Maybe I should do a Kickstarter project to get these guys into volume production…

I have a copy of “Analog Circuit Design, Volume 2, Immersion in the Black Art of Analog Design” by Bob Dobkin and Jim Williams to give away to one lucky listener. Like this episode on Facebook and you will be entered to win.

Double Density Cool Edge Next Generation Card Edge Interconnect

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Amphenol ICC

Nowhere is the need for the reduction of board space more important than in the realm of high-performance servers. One way we can reduce complexity and reduce overall board space in our server designs can be found in the connector solutions we choose. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with David Einhorn from Amphenol about how Amphenol double-density cool edge interconnects can not only reduce space but also lessen complexity and give us greater flexibility.
