IC Imagination and Dreaming in Drones

efabless’ On Demand IP and MIT’s Design Your Own Drone Program

How many engineers does it take to turn chip design on its head? Just one. In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we take a closer look at how efabless plans to change the face of the semiconductor industry – one integrated circuit at a time. efabless CEO Mike Wishart joins us to discuss the details of their new online community, how they adapted the app store model for the semiconductor world, and how you can participate in their IP development challenge. Also this week, we look at MIT’s new Design Your Dream Drone program and check out how you can get started with this super cool new program.

How to Fast-Charge Your Supercapacitor

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

Supercapacitors (or ultracapacitors) are suited for short charge and discharge cycles. They require high currents for fast charge as well as a high voltage with a high number in series as shown in two usage cases: an automatic pallet shuttle and a fail-safe backup system. In these and many other cases, the fast charge is provided by a flexible, high-efficiency, high-voltage, and high-current charger based on a synchronous, step-down, supercapacitor charger controller.

Benefits and Applications of Immersion Cooling

Sponsored by Samtec

For truly high-performance systems, liquid immersion cooling is often the best solution. But, jumping into immersion cooling requires careful consideration of elements such as connectors. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Brian Niehoff of Samtec about connector solutions for immersion-cooled applications.
