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.

"Scalable Power Delivery" for High-Performance ASICs, SoCs, and xPUs

Sponsored by Infineon

Today’s AI and Networking applications are driving an exponential increase in compute power. When it comes to scaling power for these kinds of applications with next generation chipsets, we need to keep in mind package size constraints, dynamic current balancing, and output capacitance. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Mark Rodrigues from Infineon joins Amelia Dalton to discuss the system design challenges with increasing power density for next generation chipsets, the benefits that phase paralleling brings to the table, and why Infineon’s best in class transient performance with XDP architecture and Trans Inductor Voltage Regulator can help power  your next high performance ASIC, SoC or xPU design.
