We are gathered here today to celebrate the matrimony of operational technology and information technology. During the years they have been together, their understanding of each other has grown and matured, and they have decided to live their lives together. But how exactly are they going to do that? With a little help from us, of course. In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we welcome Lou Lutostanski … Read More → "Marrying the Worlds of OT and IT"
Once again, a news story has appeared in time to provide a topical twist to a story that was already underway. At the beginning of January, distribution giant Arrow Electronics announced that it had bought einfochips – a 1500-person “design and managed services” company. To quote the release, einfochips’ activities include, “developing custom hardware and software and new business models for the Internet of Things (IoT)”. And this announcement neatly … Read More → "The Changing Face of Distribution"
When you’re building out network infrastructure, it’s often that last hundred meters or so that causes the most headache. Sure, there are challenges getting all the huge pipes and big switches to handle the massive bandwidth reliably, but things sometimes get the trickiest when we make that final run to the subscriber. Ethernet cables, fiber, and other wired solutions are expensive, difficult to install, high maintenance, and … Read More → "Like Fiber in the Sky"
Some memory technologies are straightforward. Like SRAM. You want to write a byte? You write a byte. You want to read a byte? You read a byte. Other than that, you have an on/off switch, and that’s pretty much it. OK, it’s expensive and uses power and – oh yeah – it’s volatile. But still – it’s so much simpler than the “cheaper” memories.
In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we have a special selection of interviews from the 2017 MEMS and Sensors Executive Congress Technology Showcase. To start things off, Aaron Aders (Founder and CEO of LEIF Technologies) introduces us to the world’s first light electric vehicle that
“Nothing is a mistake. There is no win and no fail. There is only make.” – Immaculate Heart Art College, rule #6
In business, there’s the concept of creative destruction. Prof. Clayton Christensen argues about “the innovator’s dilemma” and disruption from below. In more prosaic terms, product companies must “watch their rearview mirrors” or else a competitor might come “roaring up their tailpipe.”
