Welcome my electronic engineering compatriots! We’ve got quite a line up for you this week. First up, Rob Persons (Artesyn Embedded Technologies) joins us to discuss the details of a real world AdvancedTCA application that utilizes SWAP-C called DASCAN (Dynamically Adaptive Secure Computing Area Network) and how AdvancedTCA applications compare with more traditional server-based applications in battlefield environments. We also discuss how Artesyn has collaborated with Gamestream and … Read More → "Real World ATCA and SWAP-C, a Revolution in Gaming, and Bathtub Drones"
The design cycle drum beats on. Your research and development team have been stressed for months. The constant push for “the next big thing” keeps you up at night. We’ve all been there. In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we look at how the ever-growing life cycles of our embedded designs affect our product portfolio profitability. Ethan Plotkin (GDCA – CEO) … Read More → "Robbing from Your Future to Service Your Past"

There’s a scene in the old Woody Allen movie, “Sleeper,” where a future time traveler discovers a cave with an ancient, dust-covered VW Beetle parked inside. He cautiously explores the strange artifact before opening the door and hesitantly settling in to the … Read More → "It’s Alive!"
In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we’re headed hundreds of kilometers above the earth and we’re bringing commercial off-the-shelf parts with us! My guest Doug Patterson (Aitech) and I take a closer look at how radiation affects space-destined designs, we examine the difference between space-grade and space-qualified parts, and we also chat about how COTS products are being used in space applications today. … Read More → "Space: The Final COTS Frontier"
This week’s episode of Fish Fry covers the world of embedded design open standards and modules, a new security IC, and the science behind swearing. Jerry Gipper (Executive Director at VITA) joins us to discuss how VITA evolved from a simple VMEbus users group to the unique collaboration between suppliers and users it is today. We’ll discuss the future of VME and VPX technology, and why open … Read More → "Why Blank Slates Don’t Work"
Our EE Journal Team went to the 2017 MEMS and Sensors Executive Congress in San Jose. We listened as MEMS and sensor industry experts broke down the challenges and opportunities of the industry. Presentations focused on system level solutions incorporating MEMS and sensor devices and components, unique applications and innovative technological and market solutions. And we live tweeted the whole thing! All those tweets are collected here so you can … Read More → "EE Journal’s Live Coverage of the MEMS and Sensors Executive Congress"
