Our second call in show….was ruined by Star Wars!
- Stu was our screener and works in the security industry.
- He was wondering about how to build an arbitrary waveform generator. He will be using a Raspberry Pi Zero and will be bare metal programming
- He will be using an 8 bit dac, the TLC5602. The plan is to put the LM318 behind it as an amplifier.
- Vikas isn’t sure about how to do the DC offset and whether to use a discrete amplifier.
- The STM8 Discovery kit has a built in signal generator demo.
- He is a student who wants to buy test equipment on a budget.
- The Digilent Discovery 2 was released recently.
- Ryan’s school also has TDS1000 series
- Microchip offered to buy Atmel (from under the nose of Dialog!)
- Dave had interviewed Steve Sanghe a couple years ago.
- The CastAR is refunding money and giving a voucher for a consumer version of the glasses.
- The Steam Controller video was beautiful!
- A FOUP is not just fun to say, it’s also how wafers are carried around fabs.
- When your fridge can’t display a calendar on a screen.
- When automation and labor collide
- ARM is starting to chart out plastic chips!
Do you guys know what the world record is for a call-in podcast show with regard to the total separation distance of all participants in the show?
There might not even be a record for it but if there was I wouldn’t be at all surprised if you just broke it!
India, UK, Georgia, Ohio and Sydney…
Whatever the podcasting equivalent of Air-Miles is, you’ve easily got enough to buy some decorative beer mugs and a set of plastic patio furniture. That’s a lot.
I love this call-in / normal show hybrid format. It injects some great energy in the show that I felt has been missing from TAH for a year or two.
Keep it up guys!

When I heard the first question I was like “uh oh, this is gonna go fast”, but you managed to provide a lot of info and not just answer it with one sentence. Great! 🙂
The call-in show format worked pretty well. Good job!
300mm wafers normally carried in a FOUP aren’t sharp. They have nice, smooth edge profiles and are nominally 775 microns thick. Now, if you are dealing with thinned wafers ready for dicing and packaging, then that’s another story.
