TODD MOZER, CEO, SENSORY
 
As our machines got more intricate and complex, touch made a lot of sense for mechanical devices, and interestingly enough even in the rise of electronics, using buttons, knobs, and various finger-based controls has been pervasive.

The trend in automotive towards electrification of every aspect of today?s vehicles places extreme demands on DC/DC converters to provide stable power over a wide temperature range, and to deliver high reliability and energy efficiency, within tight space constraints - such as the electronic control unit (ECU). A new generation of power inductors delivers superior characteristics to meet these demands.

EMBEDDED EXECUTIVES PODCAST
RICH NASS, EVP, OPENSYSTEMS MEDIA
 
Different parts of the country and the world have been hit in different ways by the COVID-19 pandemic. In our Special Edition of the Embedded Executive podcasts, we are trying to understand how different groups are dealing with the issue, strictly from a work/engineering perspective. In this interview, I spoke with Thomas Fowler, Vice President of Central Engineering at Silicon Labs. Thomas is based in Austin, TX.

EMBEDDED EXECUTIVES PODCAST
RICH NASS, EVP, OPENSYSTEMS MEDIA
 
Open source is pretty close to ?the norm? today. Aside from the military and a few other applications, developers don?t think twice about pulling down some open-source code and inserting it into their design. Is that a good thing? That?s the question I asked of Gurjot Singh, CEO of Lynx Software in this week?s Embedded Executive podcast.

Decentralized power is a phenomenon that?s starting to hit the automotive sector. Is it better to have lower power levels in more places in the car, as opposed to one centralized place? Hmm, I?m not sure, as I think I can make an argument for either solution. Rather than attempt a guess, I went right to an expert for this week?s Embedded Executives podcast. That expert is Patrick Wadden, Vicor's Global Vice President of Automotive Business Development. He explains which is the better approach and why.

GEORGE HILLARD, SALES AND MARKETING MANAGER, WINSYSTEMS
 
As I?m writing this, we are still stuck in the middle of the COVID-19 crisis in the U.S. and frankly, depending on which ?expert? you believe, we could be back to normal in anywhere from a month or two to many, many months. Here in Texas, where WINSYSTEMS is headquartered, they just announced that schools are shutdown at least until the end of the school year and graduations are being rescheduled for June or July. But honestly, no one knows for sure when things will return to some semblance of business as usual.

A single rogue wave can kill a power distribution network (PDN) in high-speed digital design. Optimize your PDN to achieve a target impedance, while avoiding high Q resonances that can cause rogue waves. Learn how from the application note ?Optimize Power Distribution Networks for Flat Impedance?.

For the rapidly expanding Internet of Things, ?Think Local, Act Global? is a guiding principle. Traditionally, decision making has been concentrated in the cloud, at the center, moving all the data and intelligence inwards. This places huge strain on the technical and commercial model of the network.
