Interested in embedded technology? Are you an engineer or designer? e-clips helps you follow the latest news on key topics like multicore, FPGAs, 8051, ESL, PC/104 and more!
eg3.com podcasts are quick twenty minute interviews with leading technologists on topics that interest today's practical design engineer, programmer, or OEM manager.
For example, we discuss virtualization vs. multicore, or power management via new evaluation kits, or energy harvesting with the TI MSP430.
The goal is for today's busy engineer to have a quick overview to a key technology area, something he or she can listen to at lunch, while commuting to work, or while multitasking.
They are quick MP3 audio feeds, and are free!

(15 September 2009) - Colin McCracken, Vice President of Marketing for Diamond Systems, speaks with eg3.com about their new Pluto single board computer (SBC), a compact, I/O-rich, board-level embedded computer based on an Intel Atom processor and featuring modular PC/104-Plus expansion.
PLT-N270-1G is the first in a series of Pluto models offering scalable CPU performance and power consumption.
Microchip PIC Microcontrollers - PIC24H Interview
(8 September 2009) - Dave Richkas, Product Marketing Manager at Microchip, speaks with eg3.com about Microchip Technology's PIC24H family of 6-bit MCUs.
The family offers 40 MIPS performance, more memory and additional peripherals, when compared with Microchip's low-power PIC24F 16-bit MCU family.
Mentor Graphics Brings Android to Embedded Systems
(25 August 2009) - Glenn Perry, General Manager of the Mentor Graphics Embedded Systems Division, speaks with eg3.com about how Mentor Graphics plans to bring the Google Android platform to embedded devices.
Mentor is excited about how Android can function as a platform for device software, and be combined with Mentor's industry-leading graphical user interface (GUI) tools to make connected devices an easy reality for the industry.
Embedded Linux RTOS Variants for DSP, DSC, and Microcontrollers
(18 August 2009) - Kim Rowe, founder of Rowebots, talks with eg3.com about their ultra tiny Linux compatible real-time operating systems (RTOSes) for single chip microcontroller processors.
These ultra tiny embedded Linux variants run on tiny microcontrollers (MCUs) providing full embedded Linux functionality and a complete System on Chip (SoC) I/O solution.
These ultra tiny implementations provide developers with a complete open source Linux and POSIX compatible RTOS running on 8, 16 and 32 bit SoC MCUs eliminating months of development time, reducing risk and simplifying lean product development.
Mentor Graphics PADS 9.0 - Advanced PCB Design
(11 August 2009) - Jim Martens and John Isaac of Mentor Graphics discuss PADS 9.0 for advanced PCB design.
This significantly-enhanced release of the PADS flow adds new levels of functionality, scalability and integration, enabling designers to leverage many of Mentor's unique and innovative technologies for design, analysis, manufacturing and multi-disciplined collaboration.
With the scalable PADS 9.0 flow users can cost-effectively design their products from standard to the industry's most complex, highest performance, and densest PCBs.
TI's C2000 32-bit microcontrollers (Piccolo) - 32-bit real-time control
(3 August 2009) - Keith Ogboenyiya, Product Manager at Texas Instruments, speaks with eg3.com about the Piccolo family.
Is Piccolo an MCU, a DSP, or a DSC (Digital Signal Controller), or none of the above? Find out what the family can do for cost-sensitive applications in areas like motor control and power management, as well as details on the inexpensive controlCARD system to get you started quickly and inexpensively.
