SPOT Platform Gives Ambiq’s Apollo510 MCU an Unfair Low Power Advantage

I hail from the days of 5V transistor-transistor level (TTL) logic, like the SN7400-series of integrated circuits (ICs) from Texas Instruments (TI) that leapt onto the centerstage circa the mid-1960s with a hullabaloo of heckelphones, which isn’t something you can hope to hear very often (thank goodness). 

As an aside, I’d like to give a shout-out … Read More → "SPOT Platform Gives Ambiq’s Apollo510 MCU an Unfair Low Power Advantage"

How Will We Feed 8 Billion People? With AI’s Help, of Course

The Earth now needs to feed 8 billion people… every single day. The only way to meet this almost unimaginable demand for food is to continuously improve the effectiveness, efficiency, and cost basis of growing and delivering that food. That is the agriculture industry’s biggest challenge in the 21st century. Increasingly, agriculture is relying on artificial intelligence (AI) to deliver those gains.
