Your Power Plane or Mine?

Do not pass go. Do not collect $200. Go directly to the power plane. Whether we like it or not, power integrity analysis is now a bigger (and messier) part of our PCB design process. In this week’s Fish Fry, we get down to the bare metal of those pesky power planes with Brad Griffin of Cadence. Also this week, we check out a super cool new 3D printed robot (yes, you want one) and investigate what sets this little cutie apart from other humanoid robots.

Achieve Greater Design Flexibility and Reduce Costs with Chiplets

Sponsored by Keysight

Chiplets are a new way to build a system-on-chips (SoCs) to improve yields and reduce costs. It partitions the chip into discrete elements and connects them with a standardized interface, enabling designers to meet performance, efficiency, power, size, and cost challenges in the 5 / 6G, artificial intelligence (AI), and virtual reality (VR) era. This white paper will discuss the shift to chiplet adoption and Keysight EDA's implementation of the communication standard (UCIe) into the Keysight Advanced Design System (ADS).

Advancements in Motor Efficiency Enables More Sustainable Manufacturing
Climate change is encouraging the acceleration of sustainable and renewable manufacturing processes and practices and one way we can encourage sustainability in manufacturing is with the use of variable speed drive motor control. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Maurizio Gavardoni and Naveen Dhull from Analog Devices about the wide ranging benefits of variable speed motors, the role that current feedback plays in variable speed motor control, and how precision measurement solutions for current feedback can lead to higher motor efficiency, energy saving and enhanced sustainability.
