Beyond Debug

FPGAs for Fun and Prototyping

In this week’s episode of Fish Fry we’re letting loose some LUTs, bringing up the bitstream, and cramming in some configuration with Mick Posner from Synopsys. Mick joins Fish Fry to discuss the many uses of FPGA prototyping, the growing importance of embedded software in SoC design, and the evolution of prototyping strategies. Keeping with our FPGA theme, we also take a closer look at ARTY – Xilinx’s new $99 FPGA development Kit.

Magnetics for High Voltage

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Bourns

With today’s trend toward ever-increasing voltages in energy systems, choosing the right transformer for the job has become an engineering challenge. High voltages demand careful attention to insulation, clearance, and creepage. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Cathal Sheehan of Bourns about choosing magnetics for high-voltage applications.
