Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW) Technology
In industrial applications, crystals are not ideal for generating clock signal timing. They take up valuable PCB real-estate, and aren’t stable in harsh thermal and vibration environments. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Nick Smith from Texas Instruments about bulk acoustic wave (BAW) technology that offers an attractive alternative to crystals.
Embedded Display Applications Innovation
DLP technology can add a whole new dimension to your embedded design. If you considered DLP in the past, but were put off by the cost, you need to watch this episode of Chalk Talk where Amelia Dalton chats with Philippe Dollo of Texas Instruments about the DLP LightCrafter 2000 EVM. This new kit makes DLP more accessible and less expensive to design in, and could have a dramatic impact on your next embedded design.
Create Multi-Band Sensor Networks with the LaunchPad SensorTag Kit
Doing IoT development today can involve a number of different communications standards. There is no “one size fits all” for wireless protocols. Every application has its own needs and constraints. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Adrian Fernandez of Texas Instruments about the new LaunchPad SensorTag development kit - that can launch your IoT design regardless of what wireless standards you need.
