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!

Create Multi-Band Sensor Networks with the LaunchPad SensorTag Kit

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Texas Instruments

Doing IoT development today can involve a number of different communications standards. There is no “one size fits all” for wireless protocols. Every application has its own needs and constraints. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Adrian Fernandez of Texas Instruments about the new LaunchPad SensorTag development kit - that can launch your IoT design regardless of what wireless standards you need.
