Microfluidics and FPGA Verification

Tools to Make Life Better

by Amelia Dalton

This week's Fish Fry is about tools. Not just any kind of tools - tools that can make your life better, your health stronger, and your job a little easier. First up, we check out how a team of researchers from MIT hopes to stem the tide of malaria with a new prototype device that can recognize the electrical properties of infected cells. Next, we chat with Shakeel Jeeawoody from Blue Pearl Software about how their tools can simplify the debug of your next FPGA design. 

Also this week, we look at the newest advances in smart display technology and give away a Gertboard courtesy of Newark element14.
