JPL Software Update Rescues Failing Voyager 1 Spacecraft

NASA’s Voyager 1 spacecraft exited the Solar System’s heliosphere and entered interstellar space on August 25, 2012, after a multi-decade journey. Four of the spacecraft’s ten instruments are still reporting measurements back to Earth. The remaining instruments have been shut down to conserve energy as the power output of the spacecraft’s plutonium-powered radioisotope thermoelectric generation (RTG) continues to drop. On November 14, 2023, the Voyager team at the … Read More → "JPL Software Update Rescues Failing Voyager 1 Spacecraft"

BYOD or BYOM to Synaptics’ AI-Native Edge Compute Party

I have two questions for you. First, what are the three key elements of any platform intended for the internet of things (IoT) and edge computing, both of which are where the internet “rubber” meets the real-world “road”? Second, what springs to your mind when you hear someone drop the company Synaptics into the conversation?

Let’s start with the second question first … Read More → "BYOD or BYOM to Synaptics’ AI-Native Edge Compute Party"
