RISC-V and The New Frontier of Microprocessors

Filling in the Ecosystem to Support New Forays in RISC-V

What has RISC-V done for you lately? In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we chat with Rick O’Connor (executive director of the RISC-V Foundation) about the history of RISC-V, the evolution of the standards being developed within the foundation, and why Rick thinks that RISC-V is the most interesting thing to happen in the microprocessors in the last decade. Also this week, we investigate a new galaxy discovered by a group of scientists at Yale called NGC1052-DF2 and why this new discovery may change how we view matter, Newton’s laws of motion, and the universe itself.

The Cryptography Handbook

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

The Cryptography Handbook is designed to be a quick study guide for a product development engineer, taking an engineering rather than theoretical approach. In this series, we start with a general overview and then define the characteristics of a secure cryptographic system. We then describe various cryptographic concepts and provide an implementation-centric explanation of physically unclonable function (PUF) technology. We hope that this approach will give the busy engineer a quick understanding of the basic concepts of cryptography and provide a relatively fast way to integrate security in his/her design.

Accelerate HD Ultra-Dense Multi-Row Mezzanine Strips

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Samtec

Embedded applications are putting huge new demands on small connectors. Size, weight, and power constraints are combining with new signal integrity challenges due to high-speed interfaces and high-density connections, putting a crunch on connectors for embedded design. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Matthew Burns of Samtec about the new generation of high-performance connectors for embedded design.
