Software defined instrumentation takes center stage in this week’s Fish Fry podcast! Ben Nizette and I chat about how Liquid Instruments is changing the face of test and measurement. We examine each of their hardware platforms and investigate why this kind of flexible, modular, reconfigurable, and shareable instrumentation is the way of the future. Also this week, I check out the first commercially viable flexible plastic microprocessor chips … Read More → "The Currency of Data: Liquid Instruments’ Innovative Take on Software Defined Instrumentation"
I love computers (but only in a manly-man way, you understand). I’m not talking about the end-products that sit on our desks, hang out in our pockets, or lurk around us as we meander our way through the world, although I’m certainly fond of these little rascals—I’m much more interested in their “brains” in the form of their processing units where all … Read More → "RISC-V Takes Embedded World 2022 by Storm"
I must admit that I’m starting to feel quite enthused and excited. Of course, these are my usual states of being, so it might be tricky for a casual observer to tell if there’s any difference. The reason for my current invigoration and vivification is that I spent much of the weekend past starting to sketch out the presentations I will be giving in … Read More → "CogniFiber: Computing @ The Speed of Light"

That book was published in 1959 and I read it a couple of years later. By fourth grade, I’d graduated to the Heinlein juveniles starting with “Have Space Suit Will Travel,” which psychically transported me out of my fourth-grade classroom … Read More → "I Was Mr. Spock’s Science Officer, For a Day"
The Internet of things is not a concept, it is a network, the true technology enabled network of all networks” – Edewede Oriwoh
In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, Marc Pegulu from Semtech and I chat about the future of IoT, the pros and cons of the various networks we need to support our Internet of … Read More → "The Road Forward for IoT: Cellular, LoRa, and WiFi – Oh My!"
I am an outrageously lucky man. I’ve been fortunate enough to visit many countries and see many things. For example, I’ve given training courses in France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, and Japan; I’ve presented guest lectures at universities in America, England, and Norway; and I’ve been invited to speak at conferences in Hawaii, Brazil, India, China, Taiwan, and South Korea (to name but … Read More → "OMG!
