Fish Fry Special Edition: Makers Today! Lorraine Underwood

We look at science as something very elite, which only a few people can learn. That’s just not true. You just have to start early and give kids a foundation. Kids live up, or down, to expectations.” – Mae Jemison

Welcome to a new episode of our special edition podcast series called “Makers Today!”, where we highlight the movers and shakers in the Maker space. In this month’s episode, my guest is teacher, maker, and author Lorraine Underwood. Lorraine and I chat about her participation in the the #badass Women Makers and Engineers Contest at element14, the cool projects she has created, and why she wrote the book Save the World with Code.

Utilizing the Benefits of Coupled Inductors

Sponsored by Analog Devices

In a multiphase design, coupled inductors offer many advantages compared to discrete inductors including current ripple cancellation, improved transient performance, higher inductor current saturation, smaller inductor size, output capacitance and improved overall efficiency performance. This application note highlights how the benefit of current ripple cancellation can be traded for either smaller size or higher efficiency, depending on design specifications.

FPGAs Advance Data Acceleration in the Digital Transformation Age

Sponsored by Achronix

Acceleration is becoming a critical technology for today’s data-intensive world. Conventional processors cannot keep up with the demands of AI and other performance-intensive workloads, and engineering teams are looking to acceleration technologies for leverage against the deluge of data. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Tom Spencer of Achronix about the current revolution in acceleration technology, and about specific solutions from Achronix that take advantage of leading-edge FPGAs, design IP, and even plug-and-play accelerator cards to address a wide range of challenges.
