Warning: This week’s Fish Fry may keep you up at night. We survey some of the scary security challenges facing us in the coming age of quantum computing. SecureRF CEO and President Louis Parks joins us to discuss a wide range of IoT security-related issues including endpoint authentication and identification, quantum resistance, and data accumulation. Also this week, we take a … Read More → "Quantum’s Leap"

IP Thieves at the Gate

We all know that cybersecurity, software piracy, and IP theft are becoming bigger and bigger problems in today’s semiconductor industry. But what can we do about it? Dragging our heels and pretending that it’s not a problem isn’t really working out so well, and those cyber thieves are only getting more sophisticated. In this week’s Fish Fry, we welcome Ted Miracco (CEO … Read More → "IP Thieves at the Gate"

MIPS Spins Its Wheels

Porsche is a driver’s car – a performance car… but it’s got no cup holders.” – Jason McCoy

You want the 140-character version? MIPS has a new processor with parity.

You want the longer, more detailed version? Uh… MIPS has a new processor with parity… and some ECC. And some additional technical documentation to help with safety certification. But the CPU itself? Pretty … Read More → "MIPS Spins Its Wheels"

Update Time: What Happened Next?

I am revisiting the subject of a couple of articles. We publish stories about things that we feel are interesting and important, but, in most cases, they are only snapshots of an evolving process. So, today, I thought it was worth looking at two subjects where the evolution is particularly rapid.

I originally wrote about RISC-V last December. RISC-V is an open-instruction-set architecture (ISA), originally from Berkeley. … Read More → "Update Time: What Happened Next?"

Disruption Case Study #43K673S2

“Security is mostly a superstition… Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.” – Helen Keller

It’s tough spying on yourself. Lots of homeowners have installed security cameras in and around their houses, hoping to catch burglars on video. And more are coming; home security is a booming business, with growth rates in the 20% range.

So, if the home-security business is booming, why … Read More → "Disruption Case Study #43K673S2"
