New Kid on the Block

This week’s podcast is one part frog embryo, one part embedded design, and one part crystal ball! To start things off, we take a closer look at how a team of research scientists have created a new form of life (a living, programmable organism called a Xenobot) with a little help from African frog embryos, an algorithm that simulates designs for new life-forms, and the Deep Green supercomputer … Read More → "New Kid on the Block"

Seeing is Believing

What has SLAM done for you lately? If you are working on a vision processing application, quite a lot most likely! In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we welcome Pulin Desai from Cadence Design Systems. Pulin and I chat about the trends driving the need for more vision processing, the current challenges associated with SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping) and when he thinks it is best to … Read More → "Seeing is Believing"

Honey, I Shrunk the Semiconductor

In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we are headed to the smallest of the small process geometries: 2nm! My guest Ruben Molina (Synopsys) and I are talking about how exactly we are going to get started with these tiny process nodes and how technical advisory boards are driving the charge toward standardization and process architecture specification. Also this week, we take a closer look at the world’ … Read More → "Honey, I Shrunk the Semiconductor"

On Your Mark, Get Set, MEMS!

This week’s podcast is coming to you from the land of vineyards, grapevines, and MEMS magnetic field sensors — Napa Valley, California! In this episode of Fish Fry, we have an interview with each of the entrants of this year’s MEMS and Sensors Executive Congress Technology Showcase (think of it like a mini “Shark Tank” for … Read More → "On Your Mark, Get Set, MEMS!"

Do You Hear What I Hear?

Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’! — Audrey Hepburn

In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we take a closer look at how Avnet and Not Impossible Labs are collaborating to create a new a category of vibratory wearables. Kevin Sellers (Avnet) joins us to discuss how these new wearable technologies will improve quality of life for people affected by motor-related … Read More → "Do You Hear What I Hear?"
