Bitcoin Blitzkrieg

Uniquify and the Bitcoin Boom

Get out your pickaxes, canaries, and a high-powered ASIC or two – we’re going mining! In this week’s Fish Fry, we venture deep into the Bitcoin caves with Bob Smith (VP – Uniquify). Bob and I chat about how the Bitcoin mining race is heating up (literally) and how Uniquify is using their ASIC expertise to create super-powered machines mining today’s hottest (and most controversial) virtual commodity. Also this week, I unveil a new unique Amelia-alternative to the current hardware-biased Bitcoin race. I’ve got two words for you: Bitcoin MMORPG. So strap on your headlamps ladies and gentlemen, we’re going in.

Speeding Up Large-Scale EM Simulation of ICs Without Compromising Accuracy

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

With growing on-chip RF content, electromagnetic (EM) simulation of passives is critical — from selecting the right RF design candidates to detecting parasitic coupling. Being on-chip, accurate EM analysis requires a tie in to the process technology with process design kits (PDKs) and foundry-certified EM simulation technology. Anything short of that could compromise the RFIC’s functionality. Learn how to get the highest-in-class accuracy and 10X faster analysis.

Mindi Analog Simulator

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Microchip

It’s easy to go wrong in the analog portion of your design, particularly if you’re not an analog “expert.” Electrical simulation can help reduce risk and design re-spins. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Rico Brooks of Microchip about the MPLAB Mindi tool, and how it can help reduce your design risk.
