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.

Effortless USB-C Battery Charging with MAX77860

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Maxim Integrated

Designing USB Type C into your design requires a bit more attention than previous generations. With all the benefits USB Type C brings - reversible plugs, more power, and higher bandwidth, it also demands more engineering inside our devices. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Sagar Khare of Maxim Integrated about the requirements of USB Type C, and how the MAX77860 can help you meet them.
