In this episode of the Tech Explorations Podcast, I talk to Daniel Cao, co-founder of EIM Technology.
I came across Daniel a couple of years ago, when I used one of their first products, an FPGA board, to learn some of the fundamentals of FPGA design. I published my learnings in this blog, in case you are curious.
Soon after that, EIM Technology ran a Kickstarter campaign for their new Zoolark multi-function device. The Zoolark is tiny, and combines an oscilloscope, signal generator (triangular, square sinusoidal and PWM), DC bias, and spectrum analyzer. A lot of power is packed in the Zoolark. I got one from the Kickstarter campaign, played with it, and wrote another blog post about it.
At that point I thought it would be good to have Daniel on the podcast to discuss EIM’s design philosophy and the newer iteration of their FPGA board. This board is designed to make a relatively difficult topic (FPGA programming and design) much easier. Check out Daniel’s demo in the interview video (demo starts at the 29:00 mark).
