Making Tesla Proud

OneTesla Makes Your (Singing) Tesla Coil Dreams Come True

It’s creepy! It’s crawly. It occasionally has scales! It’s Amelia’s Weekly Fish Fry! This week we are celebrating one of the coolest (and one might say, creepiest) scientists, electrical engineers, and visionaries the world has ever seen — Nikola Tesla. My guest this week is physicist Heidi Baumgartner. She can run a nuclear reactor, she can teach soldering, and most importantly for today’s broadcast, she is one of the founders of OneTesla. Heidi is here to explain exactly how you can build your very own singing Tesla coil, how she became involved with OneTesla, and what it’s like to vacation at Chernobyl. Also this week, we check out why 8-bit shouldn’t be thrown out like last year’s Halloween candy.

3D-IC Design Challenges and Requirements

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

3D-ICs are expected to have a broad impact on networking, graphics, AI/ML, and high-performance computing. While there’s interest in 3D-ICs, it’s still in its early phases. Standard definitions are lacking, the supply chain ecosystem is in flux, and design, analysis, verification, and test challenges need to be resolved. Read this white paper to learn about 3D integration and packaging of multiple stacked dies, design challenges, ecosystem requirements, and needed solutions.

i.MX RT1170

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and NXP Semiconductors

Dual Core microcontrollers can bring a lot of benefits to today’s modern embedded designs in order to keep all of our design requirements in balance. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Patrick Kennedy from NXP about why newer design requirements for today’s connected embedded systems are making this balancing act even harder than ever before and how the i.MX RT1170 can help solve these problems with its heterogeneous dual cores, MIPI interface, multi-core low power strategy and SRAM PUF technology can make all the difference in your next embedded design.
