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!

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

Sponsored by Synopsys

See Inuitive’s NU4000 3D imaging and vision processor in action. The SoC supports high-quality 3D depth processor engine, SLAM accelerators, computer vision, and deep learning by integrating Synopsys ARC EV processor. In this demo, the NU4000 demonstrates simultaneous 3D sensing, SLAM and CNN functionality by mapping out its environment and localizing the sensor while identifying the objects within it.

DC-DC for Gate Drive Power

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Murata

In motor control and industrial applications, semiconductor switches such as IGBTs and MOSFETS of all types - including newer wide-bandgap devices are used extensively to switch power to a load. This makes DC to DC conversion for gate drivers a challenge. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with John Barnes of Murata about DC to DC conversion for gate drivers for industrial and motor control applications.
