Bring Back That Vinyl Feelin’

Consumer Audio Gets Its Groove Back with Cirrus Logic

Calling all audiophiles, music lovers, and DJs in the crowd — this Fish Fry is for you! How can the audio quality of a million dollar professional mixing console be transformed into a mobile device? That may sound like an audio impossibility, but lossless high-resolution audio can now be held in the palm of your hand. In this week’s episode, Carl Alberty (Vice President – Cirrus Logic) introduces us to a new digital-to-analog converter (DAC) with a built-in headphone amplifier that aims to make music and audio as close to the original recorded source as possible. Carl and I discuss the technical challenges associated with hi-fi audio, and how the combination of advanced mixed signal technology on a limited voltage supply, digital filter design, and jitter reduction can get that vinyl feeling back into our lives and our mobile devices.

Machine-Learning Optimized Chip Design -- Cadence Design Systems

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

New applications and technology are driving demand for even more compute and functionality in the devices we use every day. System on chip (SoC) designs are quickly migrating to new process nodes, and rapidly growing in size and complexity. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Rod Metcalfe about how machine learning combined with distributed computing offers new capabilities to automate and scale RTL to GDS chip implementation flows, enabling design teams to support more, and increasingly complex, SoC projects.
