- Power Energy Harvesting Development
- Numerically Controlled Oscillator from Microchip Technology
The Numerically Controlled Oscillator (NCO) module is a timer that uses the overflow from the addition of an increment value to divide a frequency. The advantage of the addition method over simple counter driven timer or a PWM is that the resolution of division does not vary with the divider value resulting in true linear frequency control. The NCO is most useful for applications that require linear frequency control, high frequency accuracy and fine resolution at a fixed duty cycle, e.g., Lighting and Ballast Control, Tone Generators and Resonant Power Supplies.
- Complementary Waveform Generator (CWG) from Microchip
Provides a complementary waveform from various inputs sources including the PWM, Configurable Logic Cell (CLC), Numerically Controlled Oscillator (NCO) and comparators. It has independent rising and falling dead-band control with auto-shutdown/restart capability that provides improved switching efficiencies for applications such as synchronous power supplies and motor control.

- IMS 2012 Keynote on Integrating Design and Test
Dr. Mark Pierpoint delivers the IMS2012 MicroApps Keynote address: As global competition increases, the need to produce the next state-of-the-art product faster has driven changes in how EDA and test instrumentation work together. Gone are the days when a design could be thrown over the wall to production. The next generation of communications protocols have barely been labeled "standards" when products using them have hit the streets. To produce better communications products faster requires that the line between EDA and test be blurred and new synergies between them created...
