Discrimination by Photon

Having braved several weeks hiking through the jungle, facing all the usual hazards, they find the entrance to the cavern. Only here it isn’t a cavern, but a hole barely big enough to squeeze through – after hacking away the vines and thorns that have, for centuries, protected it against intruders.

They slide in, oblivious as to what lies on the other side, driven … Read More → "Discrimination by Photon"

The Science and Art of Cooling and COTs

In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we’re talking about embedded power, COTS, the next generation of rail systems, intelligent cooling systems, and whether I need a witch doctor to cool my next chassis-based design. Justin Moll (Pixus Technologies) and I jump head first into the world of chassis cooling and electronics packaging, and Qianqian Shao (Artesyn Embedded Technologies) and I ride the rails to the to … Read More → "The Science and Art of Cooling and COTs"

This time of year is typically set aside for preparation, and this year is no different. We spent November working on a couple of major upgrades to prepare for releases in 2018, one with the way we handle quotes in My Samtec, and the other with how we handle the checkout expe...

Given that the industry is beginning to reach the limits of what can physically and economically be achieved through further shrinkage of process geometries, reducing feature size and increasing transistor counts is no longer achieving the same result it once did. Instead the...
