Predictive Maintenance Evaluation Kit for Smart Buildings

One of the myriad problems I face — in addition to (a) being persistently pursued by gaggles of groupies and (b) the fact that all of my groupies are cranky, cantankerous, and curmudgeonly old engineers of the male persuasion — is that of being inundated by barrages of information from companies scattered around the globe.

Being only human (although it pains me … Read More → "Predictive Maintenance Evaluation Kit for Smart Buildings"

Organic Printed Electronics for the 21st Century!

What do you think about when you hear the phrase “printed electronics”? To be honest, if you’d asked me yesterday, I would have probably waffled on about using printing techniques to implement components like capacitors, resistors, and inductors on hybrid substrates, multi-chip-modules (MCMs), and some specialized forms of printed circuit boards (PCBs), but I was just talking with Dr. Florian Ullrich from Read More → "Organic Printed Electronics for the 21st Century!"

Constructing A Better Future: Building a Responsible Society through Edge Processing and Bricks for Energy Storage

In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, we take a closer look at how edge processing can help us build a more responsible society. Gowri Chindalore (NXP) and I discuss the role data management and power efficiency will play in the future of edge processing and how edge processing can help facilitate an equitable, responsible, and productive society. Also this week, we investigate a new technology created … Read More → "Constructing A Better Future: Building a Responsible Society through Edge Processing and Bricks for Energy Storage"
