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).

PCIe Gen5 x16 Running on the Achronix VectorPath Accelerator Card

Sponsored by Achronix

In this demo, Achronix engineers show the VectorPath Accelerator Card successfully linking up to a PCIe Gen5 x16 host and write data to and read data from GDDR6 memory. The VectorPath accelerator card featuring the Speedster7t FPGA is one of the first FPGAs that can natively support this interface within its PCIe subsystem. Speedster7t FPGAs offer a revolutionary new architecture that Achronix developed to address the highest performance data acceleration challenges.

Double Density Cool Edge Next Generation Card Edge Interconnect

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Amphenol ICC

Nowhere is the need for the reduction of board space more important than in the realm of high-performance servers. One way we can reduce complexity and reduce overall board space in our server designs can be found in the connector solutions we choose. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with David Einhorn from Amphenol about how Amphenol double-density cool edge interconnects can not only reduce space but also lessen complexity and give us greater flexibility.
