AMFitzgerald and MEMS Infinity to Rule the PZT MEMS World

Generally speaking, I tend not to be interested in business-related announcements like strategic partnerships. I can’t tell you how many over-excited emails I’ve received informing me of something vague, fluffy, and wishy-washy along the lines of two companies planning to sign a memorandum of understanding that they may or may not collaborate to investigate the possibility that… by which time my eyes have glazed … Read More → "AMFitzgerald and MEMS Infinity to Rule the PZT MEMS World"

Can Isotopically Pure Silicon Chips Switch 1,000X Faster?

I was just introduced to a company that has developed an affordable, clean, efficient way to separate out the isotopes of elements, including silicon and uranium. It was the potential for an isotopically pure form of silicon for use in both regular silicon chips and quantum computers that made my eyes open wide.

I’m constantly amazed by all the things I don’ … Read More → "Can Isotopically Pure Silicon Chips Switch 1,000X Faster?"

From Architecture to PCB Schematic in 60 Seconds!

Are you ready to meet the world’s first deterministic AI that helps electronic teams go from architecture to schematic in 60 seconds? We’re talking about algorithmic component selection and schematic generation technology that optimizes billions of component combinations, thereby allowing you to avoid datasheet doom-scrolling, reduce schematic errors, and design for supply chain resilience in minutes. What’s not to love?

Designing MPU/MCU/SoC/AI Hardware? Are You Sure Your Security Features Are Secure?

I’ve said it before, and I’ll doubtless say it again (actually, now I come to think about it, I’ve said “I’ve said it before, and I’ll doubtless say it again” before, and I’ll doubtless say it again; whatever you do, don’t get me rambling about recursion), I cannot help but don my frowny face when I think about those nefarious … Read More → "Designing MPU/MCU/SoC/AI Hardware?

Generative AI Is Coming to the Edge!

Over the past few months, I’ve waffled on (as is my wont) about various flavors (ooh, tasty) of generative artificial intelligence (GenAI). On the menu were items like GitHub Copilot, which generates code (throwing in errors and security vulnerabilities for free), and Metabob from Metabob (can you spell “Zen”), which looks at the code generated by GitHub Copilot and takes the bugs and security vulnerabilities … Read More → "Generative AI Is Coming to the Edge!"
