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!

Introducing new dynamic features for exterior automotive lights with DLP® technology

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Exterior lighting, primarily used to illuminate ground areas near the vehicle door, can now be transformed into a projection system used for both vehicle communication and unique styling features. A small lighting module that utilizes automotive-grade digital micromirror devices, such as the DLP2021-Q1 or DLP3021-Q1, can display an endless number of patterns in any color imaginable as well as communicate warnings and alerts to drivers and other vehicles.

Tame the SiC Beast - Unleash the Full Capacity of Silicon Carbide

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Microchip

Wide band gap materials such as silicon carbide are revolutionizing the power industry. At the same time, they can also introduce byproducts including overheating, short circuits and over voltage. The question remains: how can we use silicon carbide without those headache-inducing side effects? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Rob Weber from Microchip about Microchip’s patented augmented switching technology can make those silicon carbide side effects a thing of the past while reducing our switching losses up to 50% and accelerating our time to market as well.
