Internet of Things (IoT) product companies have been struggling for years to simplify manufacturing, security, and provisioning. Well, I was just chatting with those clever lads and lasses at Infineon about their latest offering in the ongoing battle against the nefarious scoundrels who will steal or compromise … Read More → "CIRRENT Cloud ID Automates Cloud Certificate Provisioning and IoT Device-to-Cloud Authentication"
Dave Ditzel has a legendary history with computing and microprocessors. He joined AT&T Bell Labs to work on C language development. While there, he developed several generations of processors designed to execute optimized compiled C programs including CRISP, Bell Labs’s “C-language Reduced Instruction Set Processor.”
At Bell Labs, Ditzel also co-authored the foundational RISC document, “The Case … Read More → "Machine Learning: Esperanto coaxes 1092 RISC-V Processors to Dance on the Head of a Pin, er Chip"
I have a friend called Bob (spelled the usual way and pronounced with a silent ‘q’). In fact, as fate would have it, I’ve been blessed with an abundance of Bobs (and that’s not something most people expect to hear themselves say on a daily basis).
In order to distinguish between members of this bodacious bunch of Bobs … Read More → "Eeek! 100 Captivating Columns and Counting"
I know I’ll be in trouble for saying this, but Professor Christopher Monroe gave a presentation about IonQ’s Quantum computing element at Hot Chips 33, and I very nearly understood it. That does not usually happen when I listen to quantum explanations, which usually end up as a superposition of many understood, poorly understood, and completely misunderstood ideas. I don’t think it’s my … Read More → "IonQ has a Working Quantum Computer that Operates at Room Temperature"
There are a lot of books available to tell you all about the theoretical side of designing and building embedded systems, but not so many that tackle the nitty-gritty details involved in developing embedded systems that actually work and keep on working, until now…
When I was a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed young lad poised to spend the next four years of … Read More → "A Hands-On Guide to Designing Embedded Systems"
