About DAC

The Design Automation Conference (DAC) is recognized as the premier event for the design of electronic circuits and systems, and for electronic design automation (EDA) and silicon solutions. A diverse worldwide community of more than 1,000 organizations attends each year, represented by system designers and architects, logic and circuit designers, validation engineers, CAD managers, senior managers and executives as well as researchers and academicians from leading universities. Close to 60 technical sessions selected by a committee of electronic design experts offer information on recent developments and trends, management practices and new products, methodologies and technologies. A highlight of DAC is its exhibition and suite area, with approximately 200 of the leading and emerging EDA, silicon, and intellectual property (IP) companies and design services providers. The conference is sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the Electronic Design Automation Consortium (EDA Consortium), and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and is supported by ACM’s Special Interest Group on Design.

Integrating multiple functions within a housekeeping MSP430 microcontroller

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Adding a small, low-cost microcontroller (MCU) for simple housekeeping functions can benefit many board designs. This housekeeping (or secondary) MCU is not the main host processor in the system, but it can handle several important system-level functions such as LED control or input/output (I/O) expansion. This article will explain how integrating a multifunction housekeeping MCU in your system can help lower bill-of-materials (BOM) costs, save board space, and best of all simplify your design.

NEUTRIK Fiber Optic Solutions

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Neutrik

The advantages and benefits of fiber optics are a mile long…but how can you design with them? How can you clean them? How do you repair them? Need a bit of a refresher? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with David Kuklinski from Neutrik about the OpticalCon advanced, OpticalCon LITE and Opticalcon DragonFly fiber optic solutions from Neutrik. They take a closer look at what benefits each of these solutions brings to the table, what kind of configurations are offered with each of these fiber optic solutions and what kind of performance you can expect when using them in your next design.
