Ghanaian teacher uses blackboard to explain software

Richard Appiah Akoto is a Ghanaian teacher who faces a pretty discouraging dilemma.

His students need to pass a national exam that includes questions on information and communication technology (ICT) — but the school hasn’t had a computer since 2011.

 

So Akoto had an ingeniously simple idea: he drew computer features and software on his blackboard, using multicolored chalk.

“I wanted them to know or see how the window will appear if they were to be behind a computer,” Akoto told CNN. “Always wanted them to have interest in the subject so I always do my possible best for them.” Read more on CNN

Insights on StarRC Standalone Netlist Reducer

Sponsored by Synopsys

With the ever-growing size of extracted netlists, parasitic optimization is key to achieve practical simulation run times. Key trade-off for any netlist reducer is accuracy vs netlist size. StarRC Standalone Netlist reducer provides the flexibility to optimize your netlist on a per net basis. The user has total control of trading accuracy of some nets versus netlist optimization - yet another feature from StarRC to provide flexibility to the designer.

Keys to quick success using high-speed data converters

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Hardware designers using modern high-speed data converters face tough challenges. Issues might include connecting with your field-programmable gate array (FPGAs), being confident that your first design pass will work, or determining how to best model the system before building it. In this article, Texas Instruments takes a closer look at each of these challenges.

Silicon Lifecycle Management (SLM)

Sponsored by Synopsys

Wouldn’t it be great if we could keep on analyzing our IC designs once they are in the field? After all, simulation and lab measurements can never tell the whole story of how devices will behave in real-world use. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Randy Fish of Synopsys about gaining better insight into IC designs through the use of embedded monitors and sensors, and how we can enable a range of new optimizations throughout the lifecycle of our designs.
