Thankful Times

Embedded Software Store, DigitalOptics, and Intelligent Robots

In honor of Thanksgiving next week, we’re serving up a bountiful virtual turducken* of EE goodness. For the first course, we tackle that age old question: How do you train a fleet of robots to obey your every command? (The key to this quandary may be as close as the eyes on our faces.) In our next course, we serve up a feast of embedded software and embedded IP with Sheneka Coleman from Avnet. Lastly, we finsh up our fine Friday Fun meal with a tasty morsel from Eric Sigler of DigitalOptics. (DigitaOptics’s new mems|cam may change how we interact with our smartphones forever.) This Thankgiving fryer won’t be hot for too much longer, so dig in while the gettin’s good. 

*Turducken

Integrity 3D-IC: Industry’s First Fully Integrated 3D-IC Platform

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

3D stacking of ICs is emerging as a preferred solution for chip designers facing a slowdown in Moore’s Law and the rising costs of advanced nodes. However, chip stacking creates new complexities, with extra considerations required for the mechanical, electrical, and thermal aspects of the whole stacked system. Watch this video for an overview of Cadence® Integrity™ 3D-IC, a comprehensive platform for 3D planning, implementation, and system analysis, enabling system-driven PPA for multi-chiplet designs.

Enhancing PSAP Audio Performance and Power Efficiency in Hearables with Anti-Noise

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated (now part of Analog Devices)

Personal sound amplification products (PSAP) enhance user’s listening experiences with hearables in challenging environments. Long delay in the audio system creates distortion known as comb effect in PSAP. This paper investigates the root cause of the comb effect and explains how Maxim’s PSAP based on anti-noise solution yields a superior system performance than conventional PSAP solutions.
