Cloud First! Leveraging the Cloud for Your System Design

In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, Mahesh Turaga (Cadence Design Systems) and I dig into the details of the Cadence OnCloud platform. We investigate why designers are turning to the cloud for EDA, system design, and a whole lot more. Also this week, I check out a new artificial synapse developed by MIT that runs a million times faster than the human brain!

One Size Does Not Fit All: The Rise of Bespoke Silicon

Move over off-the-shelf chips, bespoke silicon is coming your way! In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, Walt Hearn from Ansys joins me to discuss the rise of bespoke silicon, the need for open multi-physics platforms, collaboration in the EDA ecosystem, and more. Also this week, I investigate a new bacteria powered wearable device developed by a team of researchers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. (Spoiler Alert: … Read More → "One Size Does Not Fit All: The Rise of Bespoke Silicon"

Retro-Futuristic-Steampunk Technologies (Part 1)

From one perspective, I’m not very good in an argument because I can usually see both points of view. Oftentimes, if the argument is between two other persons, I can introduce a third way of looking at things that really gums up the works. Contrariwise, from another viewpoint, I can be great in an argument because—since I can usually find something with which I … Read More → "Retro-Futuristic-Steampunk Technologies (Part 1)"

U Can Touch This! BeBop Sensors Brings a Sense of Touch to Robots and More!

Robotic innovation and the future of human-machine interfaces take center stage in this week’s Fish Fry podcast! Keith McMillen (CEO, Founder - BeBop Sensors) joins me to chat about BeBop’s Intelligent Sensing Technologies which can transform any surface into a touch surface that naturally blends into its environment. We dig into the details of BeBop’s RoboSkin that can provide robots with the sense of touch and discuss why Keith believes that intelligent interfaces will change how we interact with machines in the future. Also this week, I take a closer look at a new robotic learning method called WHIRL developed by a team of researchers at Carnegie Mellon University that could make teaching robots easier than ever before. … Read More → "U Can Touch This!
