Programmable Power to the People

Micro Analog and On-Demand Power Management

by Amelia Dalton

He'd been here before, many times. He had procrastinated until he couldn’t put it off any longer. It had to be done. After a few cans of Mountain Dew and a giant sigh, he dove in. The experience wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t great. I know you’ve been through it too. Choosing the right power supply for your next design can be a drag, searching through part numbers until your eyes glaze, only to come up with a solution that (most of the time) is still not quite right. In this episode of Fish Fry, we welcome Kapil Shankar from AnDAPT. Kapil and I take an in-depth look at AnDAPT 's on-demand power management solution. Also in this week’s Kickstarter Corner, we check out a new fundraising campaign called JeVois: Open-Source Quad-Core Smart Machine Vision Camera that could bring open-source machine vision to your next Raspberry Pi or Arduino project.  Read More

What is FAR worse?

An 8-way time division multiplexor to "fairly share" memory between 6 processors and 2 DMA channels -- no priority accesses to starve another channel, no contention based allocations, just straight channel 1 gets only time slot 1, ch…

Now you might say that no one would be that stupid as to pack all accessed data into a single subchannel. With the number of sub-channels being 2^n (where n is 1, 2 or 3), it's also pretty likely that the underlying data structure to be processed will hav…

@Karl -- sure multiple banks/channels can offer concurrent read/write, or even multiply sourced reads/write -- but each channel still has the native single access or burst fill performance timings.

Now look at the last three figures above, where Cadenc…
