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"
When a lot of people hear the name Flex Logix, their knee-jerk reaction is to think eFPGA (“Embedded FPGA”). While it is certainly true that the guys and gals at Flex Logix have a commanding presence in eFPGA space (where no one can hear you scream), they are also making waves in artificial intelligence (AI) inferencing space (where AI systems will hear you scream).< … Read More → "Say “Howdy” to the Hawk AI Integrated Mini-ITX System"
It seems like only a couple of days ago that I was waffling on about how time seems to go quickly when you get older in my column SiLC’s FMCW LiDAR Can Perceive and Identify Objects More Than a Kilometer Away. Actually, … Read More → "Nova Desktop PCB Printer: Print anything. On Everything."
Just to put you out of your suspense, the tantalizing topic of this column is that a company called PulseForge has developed a technology that allows us to solder surface-mount components onto conductive inks pads and tracks which are themselves printed on thin, flexible polymer (plastic) substrates. This is quite a trick when we remember that the melting point of lead-free solder is around 227°C ± a … Read More → "Melting Metal on Plastic Without Melting the Plastic!"
I just turned 65 years old this past weekend. I find this fact hard to believe. Where did the time go? I don’t remember the 1980s at all (I must have had a bad beer). One of the cool things about growing older (there aren’t many, so you have to make the most out of what you can get) is that you’ve had the … Read More → "The Latest and Greatest in Secure Control FPGAs and FPGA-Based ORAN Solutions"
