(Raspberry) Pi in the Sky

Hackers, Makers, and Gert van Loo

Fish Fry is going raspberry this week, Raspberry Pi that is! My special guest is none other than the co-creator of the Raspberry Pi board Gert van Loo. Gert and I are chatting about how the Raspberry Pi board was created, how Gert built upon Raspberry Pi to create the Gertboard, and why he thinks IO education is important for the next wave of engineers. Also this week, I’m chatting with Cliff Ortmeyer (newark element14) about the interesting intersection of hackers, makers, and engineers.

In keeping with this week’s theme, I have a Raspberry Pi Model B to give away to one lucky listener– courtesy of newark element14.

PCIe Gen5 x16 Running on the Achronix VectorPath Accelerator Card

Sponsored by Achronix

In this demo, Achronix engineers show the VectorPath Accelerator Card successfully linking up to a PCIe Gen5 x16 host and write data to and read data from GDDR6 memory. The VectorPath accelerator card featuring the Speedster7t FPGA is one of the first FPGAs that can natively support this interface within its PCIe subsystem. Speedster7t FPGAs offer a revolutionary new architecture that Achronix developed to address the highest performance data acceleration challenges.

Energy Storage: The Key to Sector Coupling

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Phoenix Contact

Climate change is making better energy storage more important than ever before. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Dr. Rüdiger Meyer from Phoenix Contact joins me to discuss the what, where and how of energy storage systems. We take a closer look at the structure and components included in typical energy storage systems and the role that connectors play in successful energy storage systems.
