In this week’s podcast, we welcome Bob Smith from the Electronic System Design (ESD) Alliance to Fish Fry. Bob and I are chat about why the ESD Alliance and SEMI are joining forces, the ESD Alliance’s plans for DAC this year, and we even fit in a little discussion about wine. Also this week, we check out the new artificial intelligence and machine learning program at this … Read More → "There’s No Business like EDA Business"
“Success is where preparation and opportunity meet.” – Bobby Unser
Many of us would love to get started on an artificial intelligence-enhanced IoT edge device design but we’re not sure how to get started. In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, I sit down with Deepak Boppana and we talk about a new technology stack unveiled by Lattice Semiconductor called sensAI. Deepak and I … Read More → "sensAI and Sensibility"
Optimism: Belief that everything will work out well. Irrational, bordering on insane. – K-9, “The Armageddon Factor, Episode One,” Doctor Who, 1977
When Abertay University student and computer science major Gary Taylor found the fried, water-damaged remains of K-9, Doctor Who’s reliable robotic canine companion, in a university lab last September, he made the remote-controlled robot celebrity the focus of his final-year dissertation even before getting … Read More → "Rescuing Doctor Who’s K-9"
It’s a well-worn path that’s followed when new technology comes around.
It often starts in universities or large companies with big research budgets and an appetite for taking chances. There the new thing can be sussed out by patient students or engineers not graded on productivity and not facing a tape-out or go-to-market deadline. While they’re willing to struggle along, knowing that they might … Read More → "Deep Learning Gets a Foundation"
We’re running the gamut of electronic design in this week’s episode of Fish Fry. Chris Dries (CEO – UnitedSiC) and I discuss some common cascode issues facing hardware designers today and what UnitedSiC is doing to help ease the pain of those issues. We also chat about the advantages (and limitations) of silicon carbide and why he thinks silicon carbide will become the semiconductor of choice for power … Read More → "Silicon Carbide’s Time to Shine"
