At DESIGN West 2012 (aka "ESC" San Jose), Senior Editor Chris A. Ciufo sat down with TI's Matt Kurtz, Manager, Wireless Connectivity Group. Matt's group's job is to add wireless capabilities to microcontrollers with "everything from ANT to ZigBee". Consider their SimpleLink initiative, which is comprised of chipsets, protocols, APIs and drivers that make easy the task of adding wireless to a TI microcontroller product. In this short video, Matt explains that TI's focus is one-stop-shopping and simplicity. Judging from market feedback, TI has met its goals.
The economic downturn has had an upside for some industry segments. PCB prototyping service Screaming Circuits has seen business climb steadily since it’s founding in 2003 as more companies have cut back staff and resources, stretching engineering staffs beyond their own capabilities. Screaming Circuits recently formed a relationship with Newark/element14 to offer their services to the element14 community. In this interview with Duane Benson, director of marketing and sales, Benson elaborates on the growing prototyping market in the PCB industry as well as the challenges and needs of their customer base.

We discuss implementing co-processors, like Acromag Virtex-6 FPGA modules with high-speed PCIe/GbE interconnects, using IP cores and software development tools for higher performance and flexibility.
The SmartFusion®2 system-on-chip (SoC) FPGA is differentiated from other FPGAs by its low power capabilities that enable orders of magnitude lower power operation for low duty cycle applications.
Pentek offers board and system-level SDR products that include digital downconverters, upconverters and transceivers for a complete SDR solution.
National Instruments uses multicore processors, user-programmable FPGAs, the high-throughput PCI Express system bus in PXI, and LabVIEW graphical system design software to address the business and technology challenges of high-frequency test and measurement. Read the white paper.
Configurable logic tiles are the fundamental building blocks of all programmable digital electronic systems. Ever since Xilinx invented the FPGA in the 1980s, configurable logic, in the form of look-up tables and registers, has been an essential component of digital electronics systems across all markets and applications. This white paper describes the features of the configurable logic block in the 28 nm Xilinx 7 series FPGAs, highlighting advantages over previous Xilinx FPGAs and the benefits that these changes bring to the digital design engineer.
