Running the Long Game: New RISC-V Based SoCs and Using Technosignatures to Find Alien Life

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a RISC-V Fish Fry! In this week’s podcast, we first investigate how the search for alien life just got a lot more interesting with the help of a unique grant from NASA, the SETI institute, and a team of esteemed researchers from across the United States. We take a closer look at the details of this new research project and how it is hoping to find signs of alien life on distant exoplanets using technosignatures. Also this week, Sammy Cheung (CEO – Efinix) joins us to discuss how Efinix is blending the worlds of RISC-V and reconfigurable computing and the details of  their new family of software-defined SoCs based on the RISC-V core.

Keys to quick success using high-speed data converters

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Whether you’re designing an aerospace system, test and measurement equipment or automotive lidar AFE, hardware designers using high-speed data converters face tough challenges with high-frequency inputs, outputs, clock rates and digital interface. Issues might include connecting with your field-programmable gate array, being confident that your first design pass will work or determining how to best model the system before building it. In this article, we take a look at each of these challenges.

Nano Pulse Control Clears Issues in the Automotive and Industrial Markets

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and ROHM Semiconductor

In EV and industrial applications, converting from high voltages on the power side to low voltages on the electronics side poses a big challenge. In order to convert big voltage drops efficiently, you need very narrow pulse widths. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Satya Dixit from ROHM about new Nano Pulse Control technology that changes the game in DC to DC conversion.
