The True Cost of Doing Business

Logistics, Distribution, and Breaking Down the Borders of Your Fulfillment Network

It’s a dirty job, but somebody’s got to do it. As we all know, getting an engineering project to market from algorithm to design to production is not an easy task. Even though it seems like a strenuous process today, we have come a long way especially in the realm of logistics, distribution, and fulfillment. In this week’s Fish Fry, Mike Buseman (Avnet) and I discuss the changing world of logistics and distribution, how we can move fixed costs into variable costs, and how converged and hyper-converged solutions can alleviate some of those big pressures we all face when trying to get a product to market quickly. Also this week, we check out brushed motor theory and take a closer look at some brushed motor applications that don’t involve pillaging your parents’ old household appliances.

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.

Reduce Power System Needs with Multichannel Power Monitors

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Microchip

Power monitors can be very effective in terms of power management for a variety of designs and the use of a multichannel power monitors can not only lower your overall system power but also lower your code overhead, simplify prototyping and event detection. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Mitch Polonsky from Microchip about the benefits of multichannel power monitors and how Microchip’s PAC194x and PAC195x can help you monitor your power in your next design.
