Crossbar Unveils RRAM

A change is comin’. Can you feel it? Most of us have been waiting a long time for a change like this to come around the bend, and now it may finally be here. If it’s up to (newly unstealthed) company Crossbar, the non-volatile memory landscape may never look the same again. In this week’s Fish Fry, we investigate the newest in non-volatile memory technology with Crossbar CEO George Minassian. We chat with George about what Crossbar’s new RRAM memory is all about, what applications it can be used for, and how the industry is reacting to this new non-volatile kid on the block.

Also this week, we look at design security in mainstream SoCs and give away an element14 MEMS Sensors Evaluation Kit courtesy of Newark element14.

Integrity 3D-IC: Industry’s First Fully Integrated 3D-IC Platform

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

3D stacking of ICs is emerging as a preferred solution for chip designers facing a slowdown in Moore’s Law and the rising costs of advanced nodes. However, chip stacking creates new complexities, with extra considerations required for the mechanical, electrical, and thermal aspects of the whole stacked system. Watch this video for an overview of Cadence® Integrity™ 3D-IC, a comprehensive platform for 3D planning, implementation, and system analysis, enabling system-driven PPA for multi-chiplet designs.

Add Authentication Security to Automotive Endpoints Using the 1-Wire Interface

Sponsored by Analog Devices

By adding a single authentication IC, automotive designers can authenticate a component with only one signal between an ECU and endpoint component. This is particularly important as counterfeit and theft are increasingly problems in automotive applications. This application note describes how to implement the DS28E40 Deep Cover 1-Wire Authenticator in a system to provide authentication for optical cameras, headlamps, EV Batteries, occupancy sensors, and even steering wheels, and more.

Power Profiler II

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Nordic Semiconductor

If you are working on a low-power IoT design, you are going to face power issues that can get quite complicated. Addressing these issues earlier in your design process can save you a lot of time, effort, and frustration. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Kristian Sæther from Nordic Semiconductor about the details of the new Nordic Power Profiler Kit II - including how it can measure actual current, help you configure the right design settings, and show you a visualized power profile for your next design.
