One Drone to Rule Them All

The ZANO Drone Flying High with a Little Help from xPico WiFi

Buckle your seatbelt, make sure your tray table is stowed, and be sure you’ve read our helpful in-flight safety pamphlet – because we’re taking flight! This week’s Fish Fry is about the tiniest drone this side of CES – the ZANO nano drone. My guest is Keith Chu (Lantronix) and we’re getting into the WiFi-enabled guts of this itty-bitty WiFi controlled nano drone. (Spoiler Alert: You fly it with your smart phone!) Also this week, we’re checking out a new quadcopter that would make Han Solo proud, and looking into how you can leverage the power of Simulink and MATLAB in your next SoC/FPGA design.

In-Chip Sensing and PVT Monitoring

Sponsored by Synopsys

In-chip monitoring can significantly alter the lifecycle management landscape. By taking advantage of modern techniques, today’s more complex designs can be optimized even after they are deployed. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Stephen Crosher of Synopsys about silicon lifecycle management and how to take full advantage of the optimization opportunities available for scalability, reliability, and much more.
