Electronic Design – Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

An In-Depth Interview with Kevin Morris

Time to break out the sparklers, the bailing wire, and your best O-scope. We’re having an EE party In honor of the 50th Anniversary of Moore’s Law. In this week’s Fish Fry, we investigate how Gordon Moore’s legendary 1965 article in Electronics Magazine set the stage for a remarkable half-century of innovation in our industry. We also look at how (and why) Moore’s Law may not mean as much going forward as it has in the past. My guest is Kevin Morris, editor-in-chief of EE Journal. Kevin is here to chat with me about how the 50th anniversary of Moore’s Law plays into the future of electronic design, his FORTRAN days, the learning curve of FPGA design, and even a little bit about his favorite project of all time.

Make wearable and IOT audio effortless with a plug'n'play class D amplifier

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

A power-hungry display is not the most efficient medium for interfacing with battery-powered portable, wearable, and IoT devices. For this reason, low-power audio is fast becoming a more popular alternative. In this design solution, Maxim Integrated reviews the class D digital audio amplifier and discusses the constraints of some current solutions before presenting a cleverly packaged IC that requires minimal configuration to quickly bring high-quality audio to these applications.
