“Silicon Valley is not a magical place, but magical things happen there.” – Jonathan C. Baer
Earlier this week, more than 100 engineering consultants, a few marketers, and four mad scientists (self-proclaimed “consulting physicists”) met under the auspices of the IEEE-CNSV—that’s the Consultants’ Network of Silicon Valley—to schmooze, eat Stuft pizza, and hear serial … Read More → "Decoding Silicon Valley"
“Not many people have been able to start a car company a second time.” – Henrik Fisker
Let’s just come right out and say it: Henrik Fisker is like Elon Musk, minus the hype.
It’s hard to avoid comparing the two industrialists, given that the latter’s Tesla Motors and the former’s Fisker, Inc. are both designing and building sexy, fast, … Read More → "The Quicker Fisker 2.0"
“You’re safer in the race car than you are driving to and from the track.” – Mario Andretti
I’ll make you a bet.
Let’s flip a coin, and if it comes up heads, I’ll pay you $100. But if it comes up tails, you owe me $100. Sound fair?

For years, when we have thought “functional safety” or “safety-critical design,” we’ve pictured airplanes, spaceships, and weapons. All of these systems rely on tons of electronics, and they have to work properly or else bad things happen – either lots of time and money lost or lives lost.
And so, for years, the “mil/aero” world has been its own … Read More → "EDA Tackles Functional Safety"
We’ve all been waiting for the day when the machines take over the world. In fact, if you read this publication, you’re almost certainly spending most of your working day (even the part suffering through meetings) enabling the machines to take over the world. After all, that’s the whole purpose of technology – to build machines that make our lives easier by automating tasks for humans. Of … Read More → "The Day The Machines Took Over (The Wheel)"
In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we get to have our functional safety verification cake and eat it too! We’re talking about one of my all-time favorite subjects: cars! Fish Fry welcomes Sanjay Pillay (CEO of Austemper) to talk about functional safety in the world of SoCs and ASICs, how to tackle fault injection campaigns, and the future of the verification of autonomous … Read More → "New Layers of Complexity"
