Hardware-Assisted Electronic Pesticide

Findin' Them Buggers Fast

Maybe it’s an itch that just won’t go away. Maybe it’s a daydream buster – Aw dang, I didn’t think of that. Or, maybe it’s a recurring nightmare that runs you ragged each and every night. Yep, we’re talking about hardware-assisted verification. It ain’t easy and nobody ever said it was going to be. In this week’s Fish Fry my guest is Frank Schirrmeister from Cadence Design Systems. We chat about why hardware-assisted verification is on everybody’s mind these days, and what we can do to make our verification lives a whole bunch easier.

We’ll also tell you how you can join the IoT party with Atmel’s new SAM D20 Cortex M0+ family, and our giveaway this week is an Atmel AVR Butterfly (courtesy of Newark element14).

High Voltage Charging Solution for Energy Storage & Backup Systems

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Analog Devices

Today there is growing demand for energy storage with more power, longer range, and longer run time. But the question remains: how can we increase our energy storage given the energy storage mediums on the market today? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Anthony Huyhn from Analog Devices about the benefits of high voltage energy storage, why stacked battery cells are crucial to these kinds of systems, how high voltage energy storage systems can reduce conduction loss exponentially and what kind of high voltage charging solutions from Analog Devices are on the market today.
