The Future is Modular

Embedded Design, FMCs and Compact PCs

Whether you’re designing a COTS embedded computer, a low power consumer device, or an FPGA mezzanine card enhanced project, this Fish Fry has a little something for you. This week’s episode is all about FMCs, compact PCs, the future of embedded design, and some seriously cool new battery technology. Richard Avry (4DSP) joins us to chat about why he believes the future is modular, and what open standards like FMC and VPX buy us as engineers. Doug Patterson (Aitech) and I discuss the role of compact PCs in low power embedded systems and the challenges of designing compute platforms for millitary and aerospace applications. Also this week, we check out how University of California Irvine is changing the face of battery technology – one nanowire at a time.

How Wi-SUN FAN can improve connected infrastructures

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Smart cities have the potential to better people’s lives by bridging the gap between the connected consumer and a connected infrastructure. Imagine a world where you save time getting to your flight because an app on your phone lets you know of an open spot on level 4, or if traffic lights could more dynamically control traffic flow to ease commutes. Connectivity is a key part of making this a reality. Learn why you should consider Wi-SUN field area network (FAN) for your connected product.

How Trinamic's Stepper Motor Technologies Improve Your Application

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Maxim Integrated

Stepper motor control has come a long way in the past few years. New techniques can give greater control, smoother operation, greater torque, and better efficiency. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Lars Jaskulski about Trinamic stepper solutions and how to take advantage of micro stepping, load measurement, and more.
