Keeping Pace: Interconnect Standards, Racing Rats, and Combatting COBOL Craziness

This week’s Fish Fry podcast is a virtual grab bag of electronic engineering goodness! In our first segment, I investigate how a group of researchers at the University of Richmond taught a group of rats how to drive and why this research could help us better understand neuroplasticity and neuropsychiatric conditions in humans. Next, Mike Walmsley (TE Connectivity) joins me to discuss the importance of interconnect standardization and what the next generation of interconnect technology will look like. Finally, I give an update on the growing need for COBOL programmers and how IBM and the Linux Open Mainframe Project have gotten together to help states navigate this COBOL craziness.

Introducing new dynamic features for exterior automotive lights with DLP® technology

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Exterior lighting, primarily used to illuminate ground areas near the vehicle door, can now be transformed into a projection system used for both vehicle communication and unique styling features. A small lighting module that utilizes automotive-grade digital micromirror devices, such as the DLP2021-Q1 or DLP3021-Q1, can display an endless number of patterns in any color imaginable as well as communicate warnings and alerts to drivers and other vehicles.

Current Sense Resistor - WFC & WFCP Series

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Vishay

If you are working on a telecom, consumer or industrial design, current sense resistors can give you a great way to detect and convert current to voltage. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Clinton Stiffler from Vishay about the what, where and how of Vishay’s WFC and WFCP current sense resistors. They investigate how these current sense resistors are constructed, how the flip-chip design of these current sense resistors reduces TCR compared to other chip resistors, and how you can get started using a Vishay current sense resistor in your next design.
