Takin’ It to the Field

Inside Element14's Sudden Impact Design Challenge

As engineers we have the power to change the world. We have the ability to spark change (and blue smoke occasionally) and help cure the ills that plague our society. Did you know that according to a study published by the New York Times, brain trauma affects one in three players in the National Football League? My guest Sagar Jethani (element14) is here to introduce us to Element14’s Sudden Impact Challenge, a design contest intended to help stem the tide of undiagnosed on-field injuries. In this week’s Fish Fry, we take a closer look at the Sudden Impact Design Contest winners and examine why contests like this one are so vital to our engineering community as a whole. Also this week, we check out Cadence’s new Indago Debug platform (spoiler alert: your printf days may be over for good).

Synopsys PPA(V) Voltage Optimization

Sponsored by Synopsys

Performance-per-watt has emerged as one of the highest priorities in design quality, leading to a shift in technology focus and design power optimization methodologies. Variable operating voltage possess high potential in optimizing performance-per-watt results but requires a signoff accurate and efficient methodology to explore. Synopsys Fusion Design Platform™, uniquely built on a singular RTL-to-GDSII data model, delivers a full-flow voltage optimization and closure methodology to achieve the best performance-per-watt results for the most demanding semiconductor segments.

NEUTRIK Fiber Optic Solutions

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Neutrik

The advantages and benefits of fiber optics are a mile long…but how can you design with them? How can you clean them? How do you repair them? Need a bit of a refresher? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with David Kuklinski from Neutrik about the OpticalCon advanced, OpticalCon LITE and Opticalcon DragonFly fiber optic solutions from Neutrik. They take a closer look at what benefits each of these solutions brings to the table, what kind of configurations are offered with each of these fiber optic solutions and what kind of performance you can expect when using them in your next design.
