In our fourth interview this week at the Design Automation Conference in Austin, Texas, EiC John Blyler of Chip Design talks with Mike Gianfagna, Vice President of Corporate Marketing at Atrenta, about the growing competition and advances in RTL Signoff.
At the recent DESIGN West 2013 conference in San Jose, Microchip unleashed a "broad expansion" of new wireless products targeting the M2M, connected cloud, and intelligent devices spaces. There's also a new PIC32 digital audio development kit for Bluetooth audio streaming, plus 802.15.4 modules for ZigBee.
Editor Chris A. Ciufo got a chance to chat briefly with Tyler Smith, Product Marketing Manager, Wireless Products Division of Microchip. Click on the video to hear this on-target 3-minute interview.
Microchip's Motion Sensor Demo Board (Part # DM240316) is powered by a PIC24F microcontroller with on-board USB functionality and comes with MRF24J40MA 2.4GHz wireless transceiver that sends data wirelessly to ZENATM wireless adapter. The board integrates MPU-6050 that has a 3-axis gyroscope and 3-axis accelerometer and uses sensor fusion technology to sense the motion and create a 3-D reference frame.
The Board allows you to easily add this breakthrough technology to your next gaming accessory, tablet PC, digital camera, or other consumer application.

DO-178C is the how-to manual for complying with Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR), which outlines the software development requirements for FAA approval. This paper focuses on specific processes, such as verification and validation activities, traceability, testing methods, and test environments described in DO-178C.
As tablets and smart phones become more ubiquitous in the corporate and M2M business world, connecting to older technologies – especially serial ports -- has become a bit more complicated. This article will describe the ways in which embedded AP modules can solve the problem by creating small, self-sustaining Wi-Fi network around your equipment. This doesn’t change the way the your existing devices are used, it just makes them easily accessible to tablets and phones.
Steady improvements in wireless technology are allowing more and more devices to establish wireless connectivity with the same reliability that has already been achieved with cable communications. Better still, it is becoming possible to make these kinds of connections in increasingly difficult environments and with legacy equipment. This article will describe some of the techniques you can use to make those connections seamless.
If you’re not designing Wi-Fi (802.11) into your systems already, you’ll be doing so very soon. Wi-Fi is rapidly establishing itself as the standard wireless connection for industrial devices. But there no need to start from scratch. This article will describe some of the ways in which vendors can serve as your 802.11 firmware and hardware development partners, and how they can save you time, money and trouble while doing so.
Unique Solid State Rechargeable Batteries are being used by Medical, Industrial Control, Consumer Electronics, Appliance and Smart Energy companies to power their new innovative electronic product designs. These batteries have capabilities that are superior to legacy energy storage devices such as coin cell batteries and supercapacitors. This white paper identifies the product requirements and technical specifications that are addressed by Cymbet EnerChip smart rechargeable solid state batteries.
