In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, MEMS and sensors visionary Alissa Fitzgerald and I chat about emerging technologies in the MEMS and sensors ecosystem. We investigate how research and development is changing the MEMS landscape and why Alissa thinks that silicon sensor technology could be at risk of stagnation due to waning research efforts. Also this week, we check out the details of a new “sweaty” humanoid … Read More → "Silicon Stagnation"
“It will require a great deal more than a letter of appeal to achieve conversion.” — Fredrik Bajer (1837–1922)
You could see them coming a mile off. Two nice young men, riding bicycles. They wore pressed white shirts and black ties when they came to my door and asked if I’d heard The Good News. If not, they’d be happy to sit with me and … Read More → "Another RISC-V Religious Conversion"
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"
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"
The EE Journal team went to World Maker Faire!
We live tweeted the event @EEJournalTFM as we made our way through the tents to check out the over 750 maker projects at this year’s Faire at the New York Hall of Science in Queens. All of our live tweets are collected here so you can catch … Read More → "EE Journal Live Coverage of NY World Maker Faire 2017"
“Think of success as a game of chance in which you have control over the odds.” – Bo Bennett
They say confession is good for the soul. Maybe it’s good for product development, too.
A small 30-person team is taking on the seemingly impossible: they’re designing their first handheld game console. Think … Read More → "A Work in Progress"
