[From the last episode: We saw that converters are needed around an analog memory to convert between digital and analog parts of the circuit.] We've seen that we can modify a digital memory a number of ways to make it do math for us. Those modifications include: Using the...

Demo: Inuitive NU4000 SoC with ARC EV Processor Running SLAM and CNN
Sponsored by Synopsys
Autonomous vehicles, robotics, augmented and virtual reality all require simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) to build a map of the surroundings. Combining SLAM with a neural network engine adds intelligence, allowing the system to identify objects and make decisions. In this demo, Synopsys ARC EV processor’s vision engine (VPU) accelerates KudanSLAM algorithms by up to 40% while running object detection on its CNN engine.

Overcoming PPA and Productivity Challenges of New Age ICs with Mixed Placement Innovation
Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems
With the increase in the number of on-chip storage elements, it has become extremely time consuming to come up with an optimized floorplan using manual methods, directly impacting tapeout schedules and power, performance, and area (PPA). In this white paper, learn how a breakthrough technology addresses design productivity along with design quality improvements for macro-dominated designs. Download white paper.

With form factors continuing to shrink, most engineers are working hard to reduce the number of discrete components in their designs. Power supplies, in particular, are problematic - often requiring a number of large components. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with John Woodward of Maxim Integrated about how power modules can save board space, improve performance, and help reliability.
