BYOD or BYOM to Synaptics’ AI-Native Edge Compute Party

I have two questions for you. First, what are the three key elements of any platform intended for the internet of things (IoT) and edge computing, both of which are where the internet “rubber” meets the real-world “road”? Second, what springs to your mind when you hear someone drop the company Synaptics into the conversation?

Let’s start with the second question first … Read More → "BYOD or BYOM to Synaptics’ AI-Native Edge Compute Party"

LDRA’s New Security-First Capabilities Meet Missions to Mars and Colonies in Space

I don’t know about you, but I’m really starting to get excited about all the space-related activities that are going on at the moment. I remember the thrill of Apollo 11 and humankind’s first steps on the moon. And I remember the sadness associated with my eventually coming to the realization that the Apollo 17 landing in 1972 would be the last time we visited the moon … Read More → "LDRA’s New Security-First Capabilities Meet Missions to Mars and Colonies in Space"

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"

Something M-azing This Way Comes

I’m a simple man. It’s very kind of you to say that you agree with everything I just said, but I hadn’t fully finished my thought. What I was going to say was that I’m a simple man and I like a simple story. Sometimes I finish an interview with someone and—as soon as the video conference call closes—I burst into tears and/or maniacal laughter (figuratively, not literally, you understand… although sometimes it’s been a close call). … Read More → "Something M-azing This Way Comes"
