Will the Renesas RZ/V2H MPU Dominate Embedded AI Vision Applications?

I grew up in the age of 8-bit microprocessor units (MPUs). Consider the MOS Technology 6502, which was introduced in 1975, for example. This was the year I graduated from high school. I was 18 years old, bright-eyed, bushy-tailed, and totally clueless as to the ways of the world (to know me was to love me—this was long before I became the curmudgeonly, battered, bitter, broken man you see … Read More → "Will the Renesas RZ/V2H MPU Dominate Embedded AI Vision Applications?"

High Flying Digital Signal Processing! New Design Possibilities with HiFi DSPs

Reimagining Radar in the Form of High-Resolution 4D Sensing Systems

I know lots of engineers who could engineer me under the table, as it were. Hmmm, sometimes I read what I just wrote, and I think, “I wonder if anyone understands the meaning I’m attempting to impart,” like the “under the table” portion of the previous sentence, for example.

Well, fear not, because I am ever eager to waffle. … Read More → "Reimagining Radar in the Form of High-Resolution 4D Sensing Systems"

Look At Something, Ask a Question, Hear an Answer: Welcome to the Future

A few days ago, I was introduced to a tempting taste of the future that had me squirming in my seat in excitement and anticipation. You know what it’s like when you are ambling your way through the world without a thought in your head (at least, that’s the way I usually do it). And then something catches your eye that sparks a cascade … Read More → "Look At Something, Ask a Question, Hear an Answer: Welcome to the Future"
