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.
