0.6V, and Still the Memory Persisted

A big chunk of the vast, imagined IoT (Internet of Things) includes the industrial IoT (IIoT), which is responsible for controlling and monitoring energy-consuming processes based on large motors, pumps, fans, generators, heavy-duty actuators, heaters, and other high-power equipment. Such IIoT applications aren’t as concerned with low-power design compared to the medical and consumer side of the IoT—wearables and the like. Medical and consumer … Read More → "0.6V, and Still the Memory Persisted"

The Perception Connection

Hello LiDAR, my old friend. I’ve come to sense with you again. This week’s Fish Fry is all about the what, where, and how of LiDAR technology. Jun Pei (CEO – Cepton Technologies) joins us to discuss the details of Cepton’s Micro-Motion platform and how perception is key to the advancement of autonomous vehicle technology. Also this we check out how a new Kickstarter campaign may change … Read More → "The Perception Connection"

Realistic Edge-Device Testing

We have so many electronic devices in our lives these days. OK, file that under “D” for “Duh!!!,” but how many different kinds do we have? Well… phones, of course. Tablets? Check… Computers? You bet.

After those, things are less obvious. A smart watch? OK… mostly that’s a phone that looks like a watch (and maybe without the phone capabilities, but… … Read More → "Realistic Edge-Device Testing"
