I have seen the future of hearables. And it is MEMS. And it is good.
I’m being exposed to all sorts of cool technologies these days. Unfortunately, one of my problems – in addition to (a) being hounded by hordes of groupies at engineering conferences and (b) the fact that my groupies are all curmudgeonly old male engineers – is that I’m easily distrac… SQUIRREL!

“You need to be careful with a Bluetooth headset. Because some guys look crazy with them.” – Neil Strauss
It’s still early days for Bluetooth 5, but Renesas already has a couple of MCUs that support it. Newest among them is the Read More → "Bluetooth 5 for $4"
These are crazy times. Even though most of the world is locked down in quarantine right now due to the COVID-19 pandemic, engineering teams around the world are still working – through a variety of clever means – to continue making progress on the deployment of 5G infrastructure. 5G is by far the most ambitious rollout of wireless networking technology ever attempted, and it brings with it daunting … Read More → "Xilinx and Samsung Collaborate on 5G"
Are you ready to RTOS? Because I am! In this episode of Fish Fry, Mike Skrtic (Percepio) and I discuss RTOS fundamentals, advanced RTOS Techniques, and how you can get a little help with your next RTOS debugging project. Also this week, we check out some cool (and creepy?) new artificial skin technology called “Skin-On” that could make skin-on-skin interactions with our gadgets a reality.

Recently, I was basking in my comfy command chair relishing the adverts on television. They’re really the only thing worth watching since the Gilmore Girls ended (my wife, Gina the Gorgeous, and I just finished watching the re-runs… again) and while one is waiting for the next season of Doctor Who starring Jodie Whittaker to launch in 2020.
One of these adverts showed a bunch of people … Read More → "5G Meets 50,000 Fans at Super Bowl 2025"

Hey, kids, let’s all make something! If your STEM summer camp counselor has got you soldering instead of swimming, chances are you’re building some sort of home-automation appliance. Which means you’re probably hacking hardware, slinging code, and testing network compatibility. Well, Silicon Labs has … Read More → "Another Fine Mesh"
