If You Can’t Trust TrustInSoft, Who Can You Trust?

If you are a hardware design engineer, you are doubtless familiar with the concept of formal verification as it applies to hardware design, but have you ever considered how formal verification might relate to software and the developers thereof (bless their little cotton socks)?

Life can be a rum old thing, and no mistake. When it comes to formal verification, … Read More → "If You Can’t Trust TrustInSoft, Who Can You Trust?"

Internet for Everyone: a Parable

Introduction: A friend of mine recently moved to the suburbs and found that distance from the city is inversely proportional to progress. Here is his firsthand dispatch, smuggled out of suburban Portland, Oregon, barely 15 miles from Intel. If a cell tower falls in the forest and there’s no one there to hear it…

This is a case … Read More → "Internet for Everyone: a Parable"

RIP, Cloud-Connected Devices

Clouds are ephemeral, passing quickly from sight, carried away on the lightest of breezes. Apparently, so are cloud-based products. 

Consumer giant Samsung has decided to deep-six its entire SmartThings product line, starting with users’ home hubs. As of last week, SmartThings hubs stopped working. They’re essentially bricked because, like all cloud-based services, they sail upon the whim of the … Read More → "RIP, Cloud-Connected Devices"

How LoRa Can Help Us Build a Smarter and Safer Planet

In today’s Fish Fry podcast, we are making the planet a smarter and safer place with little help from LoRa! Marc Pegulu (Semtech) joins me to discuss the role LoRa is playing in global connectivity and how LoRa devices and applications can be used to reduce environmental impact across the world. Also this week, I take a closer look at< … Read More → "How LoRa Can Help Us Build a Smarter and Safer Planet"
