Standards Soup

Hybrid Systems, Board Design and a Bowl Full of Standards

With a dash of mini PCIe, a couple heaping spoonfuls of VPX and VNX and a whole lot of SBCs, Bill Ripley (Alligator Designs) and I are cooking up the perfect recipe for hybrid rugged computing. In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, Bill and I discuss the role of standards in hybrid systems, the evolving role of COTs in ruggedized systems, and why Alligator Designs can enable board design that other COTS providers cannot or will not do. Also this week, we take a closer look at the trade-off between fixed- and floating-point math in DSP algorithm implementation.

Using the DS28E18, The Basics

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

This application note goes over the basics of using the DS28E18 1-Wire® to I2C/SPI Bridge with Command Sequencer and discusses the steps to get it up and running quickly. It then shows how to use the device with two different devices. The first device is an I2C humidity/temperature sensor and the second one is an SPI temperature sensor device. It concludes with detailed logs of each command.

Accelerating Physical Verification Productivity

Sponsored by Synopsys

Physical verification of IC designs at today’s advanced process nodes requires an immense amount of processing power. But, getting your design and verification tools to take full advantage of the compute resources available can be a challenge. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Manoz Palaparthi of Synopsys about dramatically improving the performance of your physical verification process.
