Imagination Technologies Rents Talent

“I don’t want my personality to overshadow my talent.” – Cardi B

What is the IP business, really? You’re buying a product, albeit an intangible one. You pay a license fee and you get a thing in return, like huge and complicated Verilog files or millions of lines of software. Maybe you also get some documentation, or … Read More → "Imagination Technologies Rents Talent"

Passwords Rent Asunder

The upshot: The Tide Organization tested password splintering and, in one study, found an increase of 14,064,094% in security as compared with “conventional, centralized alternatives.”

Passwords are this horrible thing that we can’t seem to escape. If we’re doing it right, each of the 300-odd passwords we need will be random, long, changed every month, and, of … Read More → "Passwords Rent Asunder"

Driving Optimization

What do high level synthesis, FPGAs, and the first 3D printer capable of printing fully-functional electronics have in common? This week’s podcast, of course! First up, I chat with Max Odendahl (CEO, Founder – Silexica) about ins and outs of system level understanding and optimization, what we can do with unsynthesizable C/C++ code and how we can tackle the biggest challenges in using Software  (C/C++) for hardware … Read More → "Driving Optimization"
