MEMS Spring Eternal

MEMS Innovation and the Global MEMS Design Contest

What do electrostatic transduction, non-linear MEMS sensors, caffeine dosing strategies, and a glowing Death Star have in common? This here podcast! First up, we explore the Global MEMS Design Contest with Christine Dufour (Coventor – A LAM Research Company). Christine and I discuss the details of the winning designs and how design contests foster innovation in the electronic engineering ecosystem. Also this week, we check out an algorithm developed by the United States Army that aims to “optimize an ideal caffeine dosage strategy” and take a closer look at the “The World’s Most Accurate Death Star Replica Firepit”.

True 3D EM Modeling Enables Fast, Accurate Analysis

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

Tired of patchwork 3D EM analysis? Impedance discontinuity can destroy your BER and cause multiple design iterations. Using today’s 3D EM modeling tools can take you days to accurately model the interconnect structures. The Clarity™ 3D Solver lets you tackle the most complex EM challenges when designing systems for 5G, high-performance computing, automotive and machine learning applications. The Clarity 3D Solver delivers gold-standard accuracy, 10X faster analysis speeds and virtually unlimited capacity for true 3D modeling of critical interconnects in PCB, IC package and system-on-IC (SoIC) designs.

Keeping Your Linux Device Secure

Sponsored by Mentor

Embedded security is an ongoing process, not a one-time effort. Even after your design is shipped, security vulnerabilities are certain to be discovered - even in things like the operating system. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Kathy Tufto from Mentor - a Siemens business, about how to make a plan to keep your Linux-based embedded design secure, and how to respond quickly when new vulnerabilities are discovered.
