The Significance of Sparsity

Tensilica DNA 100 Processor IP and the Challenges of On-Device AI

What has sparsity done for you lately? In this episode of Fish Fry, we investigate the challenges that surround on-device artificial intelligence processing. Megha Daga (Cadence Design Systems) and I discuss the why the presence of zeroes is becoming more and more important in the development of neural networks and how sparsity can be used for bandwidth and compute reduction. In this week’s News You May Have Missed, we check out how the the University of Adelaide is making huge strides in quantum memory technology with a little help from an atomic tractor beam and the world’s first “waveguide trap”.

Mindi Analog Simulator

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Microchip

It’s easy to go wrong in the analog portion of your design, particularly if you’re not an analog “expert.” Electrical simulation can help reduce risk and design re-spins. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Rico Brooks of Microchip about the MPLAB Mindi tool, and how it can help reduce your design risk.
