I wrote a different story about difficulties I had installing a specific manufacturer’s networked all-in-one printer in my daughter’s new business location. I spent hours trying to make that printer work and had endless problems in getting the overly finicky software to function. In the end, we shipped the printer back and I bought another for … Read More → "Stay Curious. Stay Humble. Stay Connected."

Welcome to a World of Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces

Have you heard that the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), which produces globally applicable standards for Information and Communications Technology (ICT), recently launched a new Industry Specification Group on Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces (ISG RIS)?

There’s no need to hang your head in shame if this is new news to you. To be honest, I didn’t even know that … Read More → "Welcome to a World of Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces"

A New Anti-Piracy Server Certification Protocol and A New Way to Simplify Quantum Computers

In honor of the SEMICON West 2021 and the Design Automation Conference that took place in San Francisco this week, my guest is Bob Smith from ESD Alliance. Bob and I are chatting about a new anti-piracy server certification protocol for software license management and why this kind of server certification protocol is needed now more than ever before. Also this week, I take a closer look at … Read More → "A New Anti-Piracy Server Certification Protocol and A New Way to Simplify Quantum Computers"

Renesas Announces Fabulous ForgeFPGA Family

It’s not often that I have the chance to introduce a new field-programmable gate array (FPGA) family, and even rarer that we get to greet a new FPGA vendor, so my cup runneth over because Renesas Electronics Corporation just leaped into the FPGA market with the announcement of a new line of very low-cost, very low-power, very interesting ForgeFPGA devices.
