Free is a Very Good Price!

Ultra Librarian and the World’s Largest Library of Verified EDA Symbols, Footprints, and 3D Models

When I was a kid, a local furniture mogul gave away free haircuts to entice customers into his showroom. The haircuts were all the same, and on Monday mornings at school it was easy to tell whose mom went furniture shopping over the weekend. Free is an interesting price point. It can mean incredible savings for some really cool stuff, or it can mean a buzz cut that made you look suspiciously like the owner of the local furniture store.

In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we take a closer look at Ultra Librarian – the world’s largest library of verified EDA symbols, footprints, and 3D models, and we’ll find out why EMA Design Automation has made their robust EDA library free of charge. Also this week, we’ll look at a new pyroelectric energy conversion prototype unveiled by the University of California Berkeley that could transform waste heat into a renewable source of energy.

Vibration Sensing with LoRaWAN

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Advantech

Vibration sensing is an integral part of today’s connected industrial designs but Bluetooth, WiFi, and Zigbee may not be the best solution for this kind of sensing in an industrial setting. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Andrew Lund about LoRaWAN for vibration sensing. They investigate why LoRaWAN is perfect for industrial vibration sensing, the role that standards play in these kinds of systems, and why 3 axis detection and real-time monitoring can make all the difference in your next industrial design.
