Integration is the fundamental fuel that drives technical innovation. Each new node of Moore’s Law has allowed us to “Cram More Components” onto our integrated circuits, facilitating greater and greater levels of integration on chunks of silicon. But even in today’s “System on Chip” era, we do not truly have “systems” on a chip.
Sure, we can pack processors, a lot of close peripherals, and … Read More → "Xilinx Introduces Kria SoMs"
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. … Read More → "Yay! Finally! A Way to Secure the Supply Chain!"
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!"
