Better than a Human Driver: Trusted Electronics and Functional Safety

In today’s Fish Fry podcast, we have a virtual sundae of electronic engineering goodness. We’ve got a scoop of autonomous driving, a scoop of IIoT, a little Infineon secret sauce, and a whole lot of sprinkles… because what good is a sundae without sprinkles, right? First up, Phil Hutchinson (element14) joins me to discuss element14’s “Low Power IoT Design Challenge with Infineon Technology”. We take a … Read More → "Better than a Human Driver: Trusted Electronics and Functional Safety"

Spectacular Spintronics (Mechanical Electronics)

I’m currently so excited I can hardly speak (I can barely even manage a squeak) because today saw the launch of the Spintronics Kickstarter — an event for which I’ve been waiting in dread anticipation for weeks. As we will discuss, Spintronics is a new game suitable for ages 8 to 80+ in which players build mechanical equivalents of electrical and electronic circuits to solve puzzles.</ … Read More → "Spectacular Spintronics (Mechanical Electronics)"

Want to Learn Programming and Microcontrollers?

The funny thing about knowing something yourself is that you tend to assume everyone else knows it also. This is especially true on a site like EEJournal that attracts electronic engineers and embedded systems developers from all walks of life. But the funny thing is — when you actually get to sit down and chat with people — you begin to realize how little they typically know outside … Read More → "Want to Learn Programming and Microcontrollers?"
