Out of the Fab and Into the Frying Pan

Fryin’ up Some Semis with Mike Gianfagna

In this week’s Fish Fry, we’re throwing some FR4 on the barbie and frying up a side of silicon — eSilicon to be exact. My guest is EE Master Chef Mike Gianfagna from eSilicon. Mike always joins Fish Fry around this time of year, and this year we are discussing the state of the semiconductor union: what’s keeping us hungry for Moore, and what trends are boiling on high. Also this week, we check out a new crowdsourcing event called “The Iron Man Factory” that could make your dreams (and mine) of a 3D printed Iron Man suit a reality…if they can get Marvel to agree to it.

IEC 62368-1 Overvoltage Requirements

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Littelfuse

Over-voltage protection is an often neglected and misunderstood part of system design. But often, otherwise well-engineered devices are brought down by over-voltage events. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Todd Phillips of Littelfuse about the new IEC 623689-1 standard, what tests are included in the standard, and how the standard allows for greater safety and design flexibility.
