(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.

Hot-Swap and Power Protection -- Mouser Electronics and Analog Devices

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Analog Devices

When it comes to our always-on, critical systems we need to carefully consider power protection and maintainability. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and Dwight Larson investigate the issues that surround hot-plugging into an energized power supply, the best solutions to consider, what the different hot-swap circuit topologies look like for a variety of applications and why the MAX15090B/C with its innovative current foldback startup may be the best solution for your next design.
