I’ve got three words for you: Printed Organic Electronics! My distinguished guest is Dr. Florian Ullrich from InnovationLab. Florian and I are talking all about the unique printing technology behind InnovationLab’s printed electronics, the details of InnovationLab’s collaboration with Evonik to produce the first fully printed rechargeable batteries for flexible printed sensors, and how InnovationLab’s … Read More → "Research meets Realization: InnovationLab Brings Organic Printed Electronics into the Mainstream"

In my previous column — Yay! Finally! A Way to Secure the Supply Chain! — we considered a cunning concept from the crafty chaps and chapesses at Lattice Semiconductor. As you may recall, the idea is to use the Lattice SupplyGuard service to pre-load MachXO3D or Mach-NX FPGAs with a lock program and associated cryptographic … Read More → "Cyber-Security’s So-So Soup; Cyber-Resiliency Rocks!"
I was brought up by my parents to have a suite of core values, including the fact that it was wrong to tell porky pies and that it would be despicable beyond words to pilfer, pinch, or purloin anything from anyone. Shortly after I graduated from university, soon after I moved to commence my first job at International Computers Limited (ICL) in Manchester, England, I was burgled. The callous swine took the only thing I owned that was worth anything — a brand-new rubber-handled hammer that I’d purchased out of my first pay-packet.
I’m currently running around in ever-decreasing circles shouting, “Don’t Panic!” because I’m trying to spin too many plates and juggle too many balls and I was never trained to spin and can’t juggle. Hmmm, now that I come to think about it, that’s not strictly true because I once read a book on the art … Read More → "Mechatronics Meets No-Code Voice AI"
I’m a big fan of having hobby projects. In addition to taking one’s mind off the toils, troubles, and tribulations of the world, I think that having a new “thing” that you want to do is the best way to set about learning how to do it. Take adding a new programming language to your … Read More → "Recreating Retro-Futuristic 21-Segment Victorian Displays"
Many of today’s electronic systems feature multiple printed circuit boards (PCBs) and/or modules. (For the remainder of this column, unless such interpretation is inconsistent with the context, we will assume the term “board” to embrace the term “module.”) Not surprisingly, the system’s designers often wish to pass data back and forth from board to board. … Read More → "SWA Stands for Stupendous, Wizard, and Awesome"
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"
