How Long Until We See Whales in Classrooms?

Do you remember all the hoopla about the company Magic Leap a few years ago? I’m trying to remind myself of the timeline. The company was founded in 2010 but was in stealth mode until around 2015. In 2016 they released a teaser video that showed what purported to be augmented reality (AR) in the form of a whale surprising school students by jumping into a gym. … Read More → "How Long Until We See Whales in Classrooms?"

Meet UVVM: The World’s #1 VHDL Verification Methodology

I’m happy (albeit puzzled) to tell you that things seem to be getting better with respect to verifying FPGA, ASIC, and system-on-chip (SoC) designs. The reason I say this is that the last time I turned my attention to this arena, people were saying that the design and verification phases of a complex device consumed 30% and 70% of the total development time, respectively. By comparison, someone recently … Read More → "Meet UVVM: The World’s #1 VHDL Verification Methodology"

Are You Ready for Ubiquitous Connectivity?

Let’s do a thought experiment. Suppose you find yourself trapped in a small space like an elevator and someone looks you in the eye and poses the question: “Are you ready for ubiquitous connectivity?” How would you respond? “Yes,” “No,” “Maybe,” or “What the heck is ubiquitous connectivity when it’s at home?”

Actually, that’s not a bad … Read More → "Are You Ready for Ubiquitous Connectivity?"

Melting Metal on Plastic Without Melting the Plastic!

Just to put you out of your suspense, the tantalizing topic of this column is that a company called PulseForge has developed a technology that allows us to solder surface-mount components onto conductive inks pads and tracks which are themselves printed on thin, flexible polymer (plastic) substrates. This is quite a trick when we remember that the melting point of lead-free solder is around 227°C ± a … Read More → "Melting Metal on Plastic Without Melting the Plastic!"
