Ultra-Low Power Strikes Again

Show me an engineer that isn’t worried about power consumption and I’ll show you a bridge I’d love to sell you. Getting the power consumption down in your designs can be a tricky dance. From the semiconductor process, to the components you choose, to the embedded software you use, just about every decision you make affects your system power. In this episode of Fish Fry, we’re talking to Gordon Hands (Director of Marketing – Lattice Semiconductor). Gordon and I chat about the world’s smallest FPGAs and what ultra-low power devices can do. Also this week, I’m talking with Alf Bogen (CMO – Energy Micro) about how Energy Micro is making a name for themselves in the low power business.

I’ve got a brand new nerdy giveaway – an NXP LPCXpresso Development Board courtesy of newark element14. Visit element14.com/fishfry to enter to win one of these super cool development boards.

56 Gbps PAM4 Performance in FPGA Applications

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Samtec

If you are working on an FPGA design, the choice of a connector solution can be a crucial element in your system design. Your FPGA connector solution needs to support the highest of speeds, small form factors, and emerging architectures. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton joins Matthew Burns to chat about you can get 56 Gbps PAM4 performance in your next FPGA application. We take a closer look at Samtec’s AcceleRate® HD High-Density Arrays, the details of Samtec’s Flyover Technology, and why Samtec’s complete portfolio of high-performance interconnects are a perfect fit for 56 Gbps PAM4 FPGA Applications.
