The Science and Art of Cooling and COTs

In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we’re talking about embedded power, COTS, the next generation of rail systems, intelligent cooling systems, and whether I need a witch doctor to cool my next chassis-based design. Justin Moll (Pixus Technologies) and I jump head first into the world of chassis cooling and electronics packaging, and Qianqian Shao (Artesyn Embedded Technologies) and I ride the rails to the to … Read More → "The Science and Art of Cooling and COTs"

99 Problems but IO Ain’t One

Get ready my friends. We’re heading into the middle of the desert, we’re diving to the bottom of the sea, and we’re even going all the way into space. Why? Because we can. Because we have the right enclosure for our next electronic design. A lot of you out there are developing designs that need to go into the harshest of environments, … Read More → "99 Problems but IO Ain’t One"

Driving Miss Data

Autonomous vehicles are coming. Countless teams around the globe are engaging engineering challenges that stand in the path of commoditized, robust, self-driving vehicles. While companies like Google, Tesla, and Uber have captured many of the early headlines, vertically developed solutions such as theirs are clearly not the shape of the industry to come. Rather, the ADAS and autonomous ecosystem are likely to be populated with multiple layers … Read More → "Driving Miss Data"

Industry 4.0: The Future of Manufacturing?

If you live in Germany, the term Industry 4.0 (or rather Industrie 4.0) will be familiar to you. The term comes from an initiative backed by the German Government, to the tune of Euros 1 billion, to improve manufacturing through the use of modern technology. There is direct interest from Chancellor Angela Merkel and involvement by two senior ministers, and many of the big German manufacturing companies are playing a part in … Read More → "Industry 4.0: The Future of Manufacturing?"

Teaching Machines to See

The IoT world is all about sensing, and no sense is more important or empowering than vision. We humans rely on our sight to understand the world around us more than any other source of information, and it’s likely that the same will be true for our intelligent machines. From automotive applications like ADAS to drones to factory automation, giving our systems the ability to “see” … Read More → "Teaching Machines to See"

Picking Up Bad Vibrations

It feels great to finish a printed circuit board (PCB) project, doesn’t it? By the time a project goes out the door, the design feels almost like a child you’ve raised. You’ve nurtured, guided, argued, questioned your own competence, and even fought. Then, at the end, you’ve finally settled into a nice rhythm of blissful acceptance where you realize you’ve done your … Read More → "Picking Up Bad Vibrations"
