I have seen the future of electronic design. It is both awesome and scary. I’m too young for all this excitement. I have much to impart. Before we proceed further, however, let’s first remind ourselves as to the way things were in ye olden days, by which—as terrifying as it seems—I mean prior to 2023.
When I was a young sprout, I used to work for a pair of sister companies called Cirrus Designs and Cirrus Computers in the UK. While at Cirrus Designs, I learned all* about testing integrated circuits (ICs) and printed circuit boards (PCBs). Meanwhile, at Cirrus Computers, I learned all* about digital logic simulation, automatic test pattern generation (ATPG), and automatic test equipment (ATE).

I just had something of an epiphany.* What pops into your mind when you are exposed to the term “extreme edge”? Assuming you are of a technical nature, I’d wager the first thing you consider is the “things” portion of the internet of things (IoT). That is, the smart connected sensors and actuators that sit at the interface between the network and the real world.

I have to say that I’m flabbergasted. In fact, I don’t think it would be unfair to say that rarely has my flabber been quite so gasted. The reason for my current state of high-gast is that I just received some frabjous intelligence with respect to enhancing our manufacturing capabilities here in the USA.
Open standards take center stage in this week’s Fish Fry podcast! Recorded in person at this year’s Embedded Tech Trends Conference, Dean Holman (President/Executive Director – VITA Technologies) joins me to discuss the newest developments in the VITA organization and why open standards are crucial to the development of intelligent embedded systems worldwide. Keeping with our open standards theme, Ken Grob and Mark Littlefield (Elma Electronic) also … Read More → "Interoperability and Innovation with Open Standards: Embedded Tech Trends 2023"
