Decapitating Malware with Content Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR) Technology

As you may imagine, I receive an eye-watering number of emails each and every day. To give you an idea as to the size of the problem: as I pen these words, this is my first day back at work following a four-day break for the Christmas Holiday weekend. I got up at 6:00 a.m. this morning and came straight to my office. I ate lunch at my desk. … Read More → "Decapitating Malware with Content Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR) Technology"

Say Hello to Deep Vision’s Polymorphic Dataflow Architecture

Over the years (actually, decades, now I come to think about it), I’ve seen a lot of great silicon chip architectures and technologies pop up like hopeful contenders in a semiconductor Whack-A-Mole competition, only to fail because their developers focused on the hardware side of things and largely relegated the software — in the form of design, analysis, and verification tools — to be “something we’ll … Read More → "Say Hello to Deep Vision’s Polymorphic Dataflow Architecture"

Ultra-Low-Cost Flexible ICs Make Possible Trillions of Smart Objects

As is usually the case, strange things are afoot in Max’s World (where the butterflies are bigger, the flowers are more colorful, the birds sing sweeter, and the beer runs plentiful and cold). Allow me to expound, elucidate, and explicate — don’t worry, I’m a professional, it won’t hurt at all (well, it won’t hurt me</ … Read More → "Ultra-Low-Cost Flexible ICs Make Possible Trillions of Smart Objects"
