Chalk Talks Featuring Microchip
Secure Authentication ICs for Disposable and Accessory Ecosystems
Secure authentication for disposable and accessory ecosystems is a critical element for many embedded systems today. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and Xavier Bignalet from Microchip discuss the benefits of Microchip’s Trust Platform design suite and how it can provide the security you need for your next embedded design. They investigate the value of symmetric authentication and asymmetric authentication and the roles that parasitic power and package size play in these kinds of designs.
High Voltage Stackable Dual Phase Constant On Time Controllers - Microchip and Mouser
In this episode of Chalk Talk, Chris Romano from Microchip and Amelia Dalton discuss the what, where, and how of Microchip’s high voltage stackable dual phase constant on time controllers. They investigate the stacking capabilities of the MIC2132 controller, how these controllers compare with other solutions on the market, and how you can take advantage of these solutions in your next design.
PIC32CX-BZ2 and WBZ451 Multi-Protocol Wireless MCU Family
In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and Shishir Malav from Microchip explore the benefits of the PIC32CX-BZ2 and WBZ45 Multi-protocol Wireless MCU Family and how it can make IoT design easier than ever before. They investigate the components included in this multi-protocol wireless MCU family, the details of the software architecture included in this solution, and how you can utilize these MCUs in your next design.
What are the Differences Between an Integrated ADC and a Standalone ADC?
Many designs today require some form of analog to digital conversion but how you implement an ADC into your design can make a big difference when it comes to accuracy and precision. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Iman Chalabi from Microchip and Amelia Dalton investigate the benefits of both integrated ADC solutions and standalone ADCs. They discuss the roles that internal switching noise, process technology, and design complexity play when choosing the right ADC solution for your next design.
Introduction to Bare Metal AVR Programming
Bare metal AVR programming is a great way to write code that is compact, efficient, and easy to maintain. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Ross Satchell from Microchip and I dig into the details of bare metal AVR programming. They take a closer look at the steps involved in this kind of programming, how bare metal compares with other embedded programming options and how you can get started using bare metal AVR programming in your next design.
dsPIC33CH DSCs: Two dsPIC33Cs on a Single Chip
In this episode of Chalk Talk, Vijay Bapu from Microchip and Amelia Dalton explore the benefits of dual core digital signal controllers. They discuss the key specifications to keep in mind when it comes to single core and dual core DSCs and how you can reduce your development time, save board space and cost and keep the performance and isolation you need with Microchip’s dsPIC33CH DSCs.
Inductive Position Sensors for Motors and Actuators
Hall effect sensors have been quite popular for a variety of applications for many years but inductive positions sensors can provide better accuracy, better noise immunity, can cost less, and can reject stray magnetic fields. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Mark Smith from Microchip about the multitude of benefits that inductive position sensors can bring to automotive, robotic and industrial applications. They also check out the easy to use kits that can help you get started using them for your next design.
Reduce Power System Needs with Multichannel Power Monitors
Power monitors can be very effective in terms of power management for a variety of designs and the use of a multichannel power monitors can not only lower your overall system power but also lower your code overhead, simplify prototyping and event detection. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Mitch Polonsky from Microchip about the benefits of multichannel power monitors and how Microchip’s PAC194x and PAC195x can help you monitor your power in your next design.
