Opening the Door for Manufacturing Innovation: PulseForge Develops a New Form of Thermal Processing

What if we could revolutionize manufacturing and save energy at the same time? My guest is PulseForge CMO Stan Farnsworth and we are digging into the details of PulseForge’s new digital thermal processing. Stan and I investigate how this kind of thermal processing differs from traditional thermal processing and how it can vastly reduce the amount of energy used in manufacturing. We also take a closer look at … Read More → "Opening the Door for Manufacturing Innovation: PulseForge Develops a New Form of Thermal Processing"

Powering FPGAs is a Giant Hassle. Here’s Some Help.

When I first started working for an FPGA company a decade ago, I was stunned to find out how many power supply rails these parts required. I’d never encountered chips that needed five to ten (or more) power supply rails. Even back in the old, old PMOS days, chips needed only three supply voltages and, for a few fortunate decades, 5 volts was all you ever … Read More → "Powering FPGAs is a Giant Hassle.
