The Next Generation of Engineering

“Man’s relationship with technology is complex. We always invent technology, but then technology comes back and reinvents us” ― Atul Jalan

In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we investigate the complex role of machine learning in the future of design automation. Norman Chang (ANSYS) joins us to discuss how machine learning will not only change the course of the evolution of EDA but … Read More → "The Next Generation of Engineering"

Up Where We Belong

Fish Fry is flying high this week! We start things off with a little News You May Have Missed where we investigate the technology behind Glasgow, Scotland-based Kite Power Solutions. We take a closer look at out how they plan to make kite energy a commercial reality by 2025, and why their high-flying wind energy plans just got a big boost from the Imperial Department of Aeronautics and … Read More → "Up Where We Belong"

Edge FPGAs for Security and AI

A few years ago, Lattice Semiconductor was an also-ran in the mainstream FPGA business – lapping up table scraps left by larger competitors Xilinx and Altera. Apparently, that wasn’t all that much fun, so the company set about re-defining themselves as the go-to provider of low-cost, low-power logic devices aimed at high-volume applications. With a smart mix of acquisition and internal development, Lattice created a coherent … Read More → "Edge FPGAs for Security and AI"

EFINIX – Yet Another FPGA Company

We’ve been around the FPGA startup merry-go-round numerous times over the past few decades. It generally does not end well. The usual script goes something like this: brilliant engineers come up with novel ways to make FPGAs smaller, faster, cheaper, more energy efficient, or some combination of those. Brilliant engineers get some venture funding and start working toward first silicon tape-out. Marketing and management folks … Read More → "EFINIX – Yet Another FPGA Company"

Intel Acquires Omnitek

Following on the recent announcement of the new Agilex FPGA family, Intel announced they are acquiring Omnitek – a developer of video and vision acceleration IP for FPGAs. As the market for FPGA-powered acceleration heats up, one of the killer applications is video and machine vision. FPGAs are extremely well suited to video analytics, as the combination of acceleration capabilities and flexible handling of high bit-rate data … Read More → "Intel Acquires Omnitek"

Let'€™s face it: We'€™re addicted to SRAM. It'€™s big, it'€™s power-hungry, but it'€™s fast. And no matter how much we complain about it, we still use it. Because we don'€™t have anything better in the mainstream yet. We'€™ve looked at attempts to improve conven...

BlueNRG-Tile — STMicroelectronics and Mouser   When doing IoT designs, there is no reason to reinvent the wheel. STMicroelectronics has a sensor development kit based on their BlueNRG-2 Bluetooth low-energy SoC that makes IoT design a snap. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Francesco Doddo of STMicroelectronics about the BlueNRG-2 development kit.
