To the Cloud and Beyond

Watch out! Fish Fry is taking DAC by storm! In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we tackle of some of biggest themes presented at this year’s show: EDA’s progression to cloud-based design tools, the increased adoption of the RISC-V architecture, and the ever-present IoT. Craig Johnson and Carl Siva (Cadence Design Systems) join us to chat about why now is the right time for the cloud to take off for EDA and some of the advantages and pitfalls that will come along with this movement to cloud-based tools. Rick O’Connor (RISC-V Foundation Chairman) also joins us to discuss the growing RISC-V ecosystem and some of the cool stuff offered at the DAC RISC-V Pavillon. Addressing the big IoT presence at this year’s show, we also chat with John Stabenow and Jeff Miller (Mentor) about the unique challenges IoT presents us as engineers and why their booth had a big ol’ car tire as an example of Tanner EDA in action. To wrap things up, we lay out our DAC Details You May Have Missed including best swag, best booth, and best coffee!

Avnet and Samtec Enable System-Level Exploration with new RFSoC Kit

Sponsored by Samtec and Avnet

5G infrastructure presents daunting challenges on the RF front. We want to put the processing as close as possible to the antenna, and the standards are evolving so fast that programmability is a must. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Matt Brown from Avnet and Matt Burns from Samtec about the Avnet Zynq Ultrascale+ RFSoC Development Kit, which brings the power and flexibility of an FPGA-based RF front end to your lab bench.
