5G Meets 50,000 Fans at Super Bowl 2025

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"

Another Fine Mesh

“There is no shame is being ambivalent about almost everything in your life.” – Louis Theroux

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"

Microsemi Joins RISC-V Love Fest with SoC FPGA

Processors and FPGAs go together like chocolate and peanut butter, but it took a few years to get the recipe just right. Early turn-of-the-millennium attempts included the Xilinx Virtex II Pro with an on-chip PowerPC processor core and Altera’s Excalibur device with an ARM922T processor core. These early products are considered market failures. Actually, Kevin Morris called the Altera Excalibur “a monumental flop” in his article titled “< … Read More → "Microsemi Joins RISC-V Love Fest with SoC FPGA"

Operation: SIM

“Captain’s log, Stardate 4211.4. Keeping our presence here secret… is an enormous tactical advantage.” – Captain Kirk

In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we take a closer look at security in IoT devices with a little help from Rich Collins from Synopsys. Rich and I chat about the challenges of the SIM product lifecycle and why pre-verified hardware and software can make all the … Read More → "Operation: SIM"
