As we discussed in Part 1 of this two-part mega-mini-series, radiation in its various forms has long been the bane of designers of electronic systems, and the effects of radiation become more insidious and pervasive as integrated circuit fabrication processes employ smaller and smaller structures. We also introduced the concepts of electromagnetic radiation (EM radiation … Read More → "Handling Radiation in SRAM-Based FPGAs (Part 2)"

Radiation in its various forms has long been the bane of the designers of electronic systems. Unfortunately, the effects of radiation become more insidious and pervasive as integrated circuit fabrication processes employ smaller and smaller structures. The problem is most acute in the case of FPGAs, which also have their configuration cells to contend with. … Read More → "Handling Radiation in SRAM-Based FPGAs (Part 1)"
In Part 1 of this two-part mini-series, we noted that there are trillions of dollars’ worth of equipment in factories around the globe. Also, that if any of these devices — pumps, motors, generators, fans, etc. — stop working unexpectedly, they can disrupt the operations of the factory. In some cases, a seemingly insignificant unit … Read More → "I Just Created my First AI/ML App! (Part 2)"
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, its quantum internet…? In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, we start things off with an exploration into the US Government’s plans for a country-wide quantum internet. We investigate the roles quantum entanglement and quantum superposition will play in the future of a quantum internet and what steps will need … Read More → "Cylynt and Stealthy"
I’m currently scampering around my office with a great big beaming smile plastered all over my face because I just created my very first artificial intelligence (AI) / machine learning (ML) application… and it works! When people hear the terms AI and ML, very often their knee-jerk reaction is to think about machine vision and … Read More → "I Just Created my First AI/ML App! (Part 1)"
I just heard from those clever chaps and chapesses at Algolux, who tell me they are using an evolutionary algorithm approach in their Atlas Camera Optimization Suite, which — they say — is the industry’s first set of machine-learning tools and workflows that can automatically optimize camera architectures intended for computer vision applications. As we … Read More → "When Genetic Algorithms Meet Artificial Intelligence"
As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago in my Why, Hello FPGA and AI — How Nice to See You Together! column, on May 20th I gave my What the FAQ is an FPGA? presentation at the Embedded Online Conference. I’m sure it goes without saying (but I’ll say it anyway) that this was … Read More → "Meandering Musings on Metastability"
Yes! This is it! At long last we’ve reached the final part of this epic saga into all things related as to why switches bounce and how to mitigate against this phenomenon; that is, how to debounce the little rascals. On the off-chance you’ve only just run across this modest magnum opus, we should perhaps … Read More → "Ultimate Guide to Switch Debounce (Part 9)"
I’ve just been talking to the folks from a jolly interesting company called IOTech. One of the things they told me that really struck a chord was that their technology bridges the OT-IT divide. “But what is the OT-IT divide, and why does it need to be bridged?” I hear you cry. Well, I’m glad … Read More → "IOTech: Bridging the OT-IT Divide"
I can’t believe it; we've finally arrived at the ultimate part of what started out as a mini-series and ended up being a mega-epic. In a moment, we're going to consider FPGA (hardware) and MCU (software) solutions to the switch bounce problem, but first...

[From the last episode: We put the various pieces of a memory together to show the whole thing.] Before we finally turn our memory discussion into an AI discussion, let's take on one annoying little detail that I've referred to a few times, but have kept putting off. ...
