Austriamicrosystems (www.austriamicrosystems.com) has introduced its 50V CMOS high voltage (HV) process, a fully modular proprietary extension of the 0.35 µm CMOS technology that enables high performance/high current applications. The new purely CMOS-based HV process is achieved with 17 to 19 masks, compared with 23 to 25 in conventional processes, and allows optimum re-use of low-voltage CMOS IP.
One of the biggest walls in embedded software development is the integration of low-level drivers with higher-level middleware and application code, but silicon vendors are stepping up to bring it down.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
