Rogue Valley Micro Makes Your Design Dreams Come True

Nestled in the rain shadow (and yes, that really is a thing) between the Cascade Range and Siskiyou Mountains, sits a very unique foundry. A foundry that specializes in semiconductor, biotechnology, nanotechnology, and MEMS services for companies large, small, and everywhere in between. In this week’s Fish Fry, we take a closer look at Medford, Oregon-based Rogue Valley Microelectronics. Jessica Gomez (CEO – Rogue Valley Microelectronics) joins Fish Fry to discuss the many flavors of foundry services offered at Rogue Valley Micro, how their specialized R&D helps design dreams come true, and why they chose Medford for their foundry’s home base. Also this week, we check out a new technology developed at the Tyndall National Institute that will revolutionize how we monitor radiation exposure in space.

How to Harness the Massive Amounts of Design Data Generated with Every Project

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

Long gone are the days where engineers imported text-based reports into spreadsheets and sorted the columns to extract useful information. Introducing the Cadence Joint Enterprise Data and AI (JedAI) platform created from the ground up for EDA data such as waveforms, workflows, RTL netlists, and more. Using Cadence JedAI, engineering teams can visualize the data and trends and implement practical design strategies across the entire SoC design for improved productivity and quality of results.

Solving Design Challenges Using TI's Code Free Sensorless BLDC Motor Drivers

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Texas Instruments

Designing systems with Brushless DC motors can present us with a variety of difficult design challenges including motor deceleration, reliable motor startup and hardware complexity. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Vishnu Balaraj from Texas Instruments and Amelia Dalton investigate two new solutions for BLDC motor design that are code free, sensorless and easy to use. They review the features of the MCF8316A and MCT8316A motor drivers and examine how each of these solutions can make your next BLDC design easier than ever before.
