Tools, Airplanes, and Smart Watches

Embedded Design Makes The World Go Round

In this week’s Fish Fry – we’re talking tools, we’re talking airplanes, and we’re talking watches. First, I’m chatting with Jim McElroy (Vice President of Marketing – LDRA) about where LDRA fits in the embedded tool landscape, what their compliance management system is all about, and how this compliance management system may help you get your next Mil/Aero design off the ground. Also this week, I’m checking out how Aldec’s new Spec-TRACER tool suite can help you navigate the twists and turns of your next DO-254 design and why you should check out a new Kickstarter campaign that is attempting to launch a brand new smart watch called The Agent.

I’ve got a chipKIT Uno32 Arduino-Compatible Prototyping Platform to give away to one lucky listener courtesy of newark element14 this week! Head on over to element14.com/fishfry to enter to win.

uPOL Technology

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and TDK

Power modules are a superior solution for many system designs. Their small form factor, high efficiency, ease of design-in, and solid reliability make them a great solution in a wide range of applications. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Tony Ochoa of TDK about the new uPOL family of power modules and how they can deliver the power in your next design.
