Analog’s Smarty Pants

Microchip's Intelligent Analog

This week we’re talking about analog. Not just any analog – intelligent analog. No, it’s not a myth (like monster cable) or a legend (like green magic marker making your CDs sound better) — it’s real and its coming to a work bench or lab near you. We chat with Jason Tollefson from Microchip about Microchip’s new analog system-on-chip MCU family that might just have the smarts you need for your next design.

Also this week, we check out how you can utilize Tabula’s Spacetime architecture for your next super speed Ethernet design. Our nerdy giveaway is a Bud Board-Ganizer courtesy of Newark element14 and you should enter today!

[From the last episode: We looked at subroutines in computer programs.] We saw a couple weeks ago that some memories are big, but slow (flash memory). Others are fast, but not so big '€“ and they'€™re power-hungry to boot (SRAM). This sets up an interesting problem. When ...
