Recently, I received an email from my old chum Dave Millman, who is CEO of SalesDev.Global. Before we plunge headfirst into the fray (this column) with gusto and abandon (and panache, of course), I would first like to note that I only just … Read More → "Create Free Silicon Chips Courtesy of Google, SkyWater, and Efabless!"

Ambiq has a new microcontroller. Of all the MCUs you could pick for your next IoT design… this is one of them.
If that sounds like damning with faint praise, I don’t mean it that way. It’s actually a very nice … Read More → "Ambiq Apollo4 Undercuts IoT Power"
I think it’s fair to say that the majority of my friends in Embedded Space (where no one can hear you scream) tend to live on the microcontroller (MCU) side of the fence. To put this another way, relatively few of my chums don their “I’m an FPGA Designer” T-Shirts before heading off to work in the morning.
A few years ago as I pen … Read More → "Eeek Alors! Radiation Hardened eFPGA IP"

I’ll admit, I’m biased on this one. Back when I had a real job, with an office and employees and everything, one of my engineers came to me with a proposal. Seems he’d developed something in his spare time that could do “ wireless battery charging at a distance.” … Read More → "Wireless Chargers Present Ethical Dilemmas"

Well, that escalated quickly. Wi-Fi was invented only 20 years ago, and already there are 20 different standards based on it. There are the familiar 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz versions that we use on our laptops, but also 802.11ax, -aj, -bb, and more. They’re even … Read More → "Wi-Fi HaLow Close to Making Its Debut"
Constructing A Better Future: Building a Responsible Society through Edge Processing and Bricks for Energy Storage
In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, we take a closer look at how edge processing can help us build a more responsible society. Gowri Chindalore (NXP) and I discuss the role data management and power efficiency will play in the future of edge processing and how edge processing can help facilitate an equitable, responsible, and productive society. Also this week, we investigate a new technology created … Read More → "Constructing A Better Future: Building a Responsible Society through Edge Processing and Bricks for Energy Storage"
