Cloudy with a Chance of EDA

FPGAs and Design Automation in the Cloud

Fish Fry heads into the cloud this week. We talk with two different CEOs from two different EDA companies about how their forays into the cloud set them apart from the rest of the EDA pack and promise to make our design lives a whole lot easier. With Dr. Raik Brinkmann (CEO – OneSpin Solutions) we discuss OneSpin’s formal verification tool suite and how it works in the cloud, and why Raik thinks karate and engineering have a lot in common. We also chat with Harn Ng (CEO – Plunify) about how this Singapore-based EDA company is looking to revolutionize the FPGA design process.

Did you know that the Super Hero Pub Crawl and World Record Attempt is taking place in Portland, Oregon this weekend? We’ll be checking that out as well, and giving away an Arduino Uno 65PCS Workshop Set courtesy of Newark element14.

Demo: Inuitive NU4000 SoC with ARC EV Processor Running SLAM and CNN

Sponsored by Synopsys

Autonomous vehicles, robotics, augmented and virtual reality all require simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) to build a map of the surroundings. Combining SLAM with a neural network engine adds intelligence, allowing the system to identify objects and make decisions. In this demo, Synopsys ARC EV processor’s vision engine (VPU) accelerates KudanSLAM algorithms by up to 40% while running object detection on its CNN engine.

The Cryptography Handbook

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

The Cryptography Handbook is designed to be a quick study guide for a product development engineer, taking an engineering rather than theoretical approach. In this series, we start with a general overview and then define the characteristics of a secure cryptographic system. We then describe various cryptographic concepts and provide an implementation-centric explanation of physically unclonable function (PUF) technology. We hope that this approach will give the busy engineer a quick understanding of the basic concepts of cryptography and provide a relatively fast way to integrate security in his/her design.

PiezoListen: A New Kind of Speaker for New Applications

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and TDK

Until recently, putting speakers into extremely space-constrained designs was a daunting challenge. Now, however, advances in piezo speakers bring remarkable performance to ultra-small ultra-thin speakers. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Matt Reynolds of TDK about PiezoListen - a whole new kind of high-performance multilayer piezo speaker.
