Magic, Mobile, and More
Where in the world will Fish Fry take us this week? First, we’re going to a take quick stroll by the most recent Raspberry Pi news, then it’s on over to some “Magic Finger” technology being developed by the Universities of Toronto and Alberta, and then we'll drive into EDA land with Bill Neifert (Carbon Design Systems- CTO). Bill is going to chat with me about Carbon Design Systems's recent collaboration with Samsung, how $4 million dollars in venture funding comes into play, and what exactly Carbon is going to do with all that cashola.
I have a brand new nerdy giveaway to throw your way, but you’ll have to listen to find out what it is and how to win.

Fish Fry Executive Interviews
Posted on October 19, 2012 at 3:11 PMThis week's Fish Fry is all about what you can do with newest Raspberry Pi board, where touchpad technology could be headed in the future, and how a joint venture between Carbon Design Systems and Samsung could signal a new era in venture funding. What do you think about the stories covered in today's show?

The new Raspberry Pi makes a good building block for a supercomputer. This was done by Prof Simon Cox in the UK. You should do a segment on his 64 Raspberry Pi Supercomputer array.
I have a Pi, and plan to arrange an array of 6 or 8 to make a Jumbo Videowall.I am working on configuration now, using MPI to sync all Pi's and TV's.
I could use the LX-9 kit to improve the interface between the Pi's and speed up the SERDES within the interface "Fabric". With the LX-9 I could think about integrating a Media Server as well.

I've been having a lot of fun with my Raspberry Pi, it's been sort of my gateway drug into hardware. My addiction progression went Pi -> Arduino -> FPGA.
With the LX-9 I could make some serious progress in learning digital hardware design.
