Where else can you go for not one but two electronic engineering interviews with two of the coolest executives in the biz? Yep, right here. First up, Robert Blake (Achronix – CEO) and I discuss the details of their Speedcore custom blocks, the issues surrounding the efficiency of computation in SoC design, and the benefits of FPGA acceleration core integration. Also this week, Mike Wishart (efabless – CEO) … Read More → "Go Configure and Multiply"
We’ve all felt like Dr. Frankenstein at some point in our careers, right? We kludge together a board with a wide variety of parts, add electricity and some blue smoke, and then (if we are lucky) we have created the perfect monster. Without a proper avenue for financing and a solid plan to bring your monster into the world (without mobs … Read More → "It’s Alive!"
Right this way, ladies and gentlemen, right this way! We’ve got a big top filled with delights from this year’s Maker Faire in New York City. In our first interview, Fish Fry special correspondent Larra Morris chats with high school student Sam Zeloof about the semiconductor fab that he built in his own home. Next, Larra investigates how Wi-Fi enabled sandals could … Read More → "The Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth"
For the past few years, we at EE Journal have watched with excitement as the maker movement has continued to grow and assert itself in the engineering world and beyond. Making is establishing itself as a new educational paradigm for tomorrow’s engineers and as a new approach for entrepreneurs. We see makers driven by a relentless … Read More → "Missing the Mark on Makers"
In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we head into the heart of the IoT ecosystem: the smart home. Brian Bedrosian from Cypress Semiconductor joins us to discuss some of the details of the WICED (Wireless Connectivity for Embedded Devices) Studio platform. We chat about the addition of iCloud remote access to the WICED platform and all the cool … Read More → "Smarter Homes with Siri"
Imagine you are an admissions counselor at your favorite engineering school. It’s a top-flight institution, and you have far more applicants than openings. You need to be very selective about who you admit.
The first candidate enters your office and takes a seat.
“So, tell me a little bit about what you’ve done in high school, and why you want to be an … Read More → "The Bright, Bright Future of Electronic Engineering"
