DesignCon and Beyond

Fish Fry Takes on DesignCon 2014

The lights: Fluorescent. The carpet: Padded. The lanes: Routed. Where in the world could Fish Fry be? DesignCon 2014, of course. In this special DesignCon episode of Fish Fry, we launch ourselves into the multi-faceted world of electronic design with a couple of interesting interviews. My first guest is none other than Kilopass CEO Charlie Cheng. Charlie and I get down to the nuts and bolts of non-volatile memory, and Charlie gives me his take on where he thinks the technology is headed over the next few years. Next, I chat with Mark Toth (CadSoft) about CadSoft’s ubiquitous EAGLE PCB Design Software, and I get the inside scoop on the results of their recent PCB design survey. 

And, we’re giving away a GertBoard (courtesy of Newark element14) to one lucky listener this week! Head on over to element14.com/fishfry to enter to win.

PCIe Gen5 x16 Running on the Achronix VectorPath Accelerator Card

Sponsored by Achronix

In this demo, Achronix engineers show the VectorPath Accelerator Card successfully linking up to a PCIe Gen5 x16 host and write data to and read data from GDDR6 memory. The VectorPath accelerator card featuring the Speedster7t FPGA is one of the first FPGAs that can natively support this interface within its PCIe subsystem. Speedster7t FPGAs offer a revolutionary new architecture that Achronix developed to address the highest performance data acceleration challenges.

Twinax Flyover Systems for Next Gen Speeds

Sponsored by Samtec

As the demand for higher and higher speed connectivity increases, we need to look at our interconnect solutions to help solve the design requirements inherent with these kinds of designs. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and Matthew Burns from Samtec discuss how Samtec’s Flyover technology is helping solve our high speed connectivity needs. They take closer look at how Samtec’s Flyover technology helps solve the issue with PCB reach, the details of FLYOVER® QSFP SYSTEM, and how this cost effective, high–performance and heat efficient can help you with the challenges of your 56 Gbps bandwidths and beyond design.
