Organic Printed Electronics for the 21st Century!

What do you think about when you hear the phrase “printed electronics”? To be honest, if you’d asked me yesterday, I would have probably waffled on about using printing techniques to implement components like capacitors, resistors, and inductors on hybrid substrates, multi-chip-modules (MCMs), and some specialized forms of printed circuit boards (PCBs), but I was just talking with Dr. Florian Ullrich from Read More → "Organic Printed Electronics for the 21st Century!"

A Mesh By Any Other Name Just Isn’t the Same

In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, we’re making the impossible possible! We start things off with a closer look at the world’s first metamaterial developed by a team of researchers from EPFL Labs. We investigate the unique properties of this new metamaterial and how this research could pave the way for the development of advanced forms of mechanical metamaterials. Also this week, Matt Commens (Ansys) joins … Read More → "A Mesh By Any Other Name Just Isn’t the Same"

Henny Youngman and The Law of Unintended Consequences: Fish Fry Welcomes Eric Bogatin

If there is a fire you are trying to douse, you can’t put it out from inside the house” – Thomas Jefferson in Hamilton

The man, the myth, the signal integrity legend Eric Bogatin joins Fish Fry this week! We discuss the propagation of misconceptions in our design lives, the law of unintended consequences and what the Henny Youngman principle is all about. Also this … Read More → "Henny Youngman and The Law of Unintended Consequences: Fish Fry Welcomes Eric Bogatin"

Flex Logix Joins the Race to the Inferencing Edge

Have you noticed that there seem to be a lot more products flaunting the fact that they are “Gluten Free” on the supermarket shelves these days? This sort of thing is obviously of interest to the estimated one person out of a hundred who has Celiac disease and is therefore intolerant to gluten, but do these product labels convey useful information … Read More → "Flex Logix Joins the Race to the Inferencing Edge"

Cadence Brings Clarity to EMI

EMI is the ghost in our machines, the phantom of our electronic operas. We create our systems with a specific purpose, and our engineering efforts aim to hone and optimize toward that goal. At the same time, lurking in the copper traces and wayward return paths are silent specters seeking to derail our plans. They haunt our designs undetected, biding their time until the final day … Read More → "Cadence Brings Clarity to EMI"
