The Hidden Security Risks of Automotive Electronic Systems

What comes to mind when you think of an automotive energy source? I’m guessing of all the things you could possibly imagine tamarind shells wouldn’t be one of them… but maybe they should be. To start things off in this week’s Fish Fry podcast, I take a closer look at a new multi-national research study that could pave ways to supply energy to cars. (Spoiler Alert: … Read More → "The Hidden Security Risks of Automotive Electronic Systems"

The World According to Analog: Why Our Digital Futures Depend on Analog

In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, we investigate the analog data conundrum with Tom Doyle and Marcie Weinstein from Aspinity. We take a closer look at the power and data challenges of processing at the edge, what Aspinity’s new analog machine learning IC is all about, and the details of their new evaluation kits that utilize their analogML core. Also this week, I dig into the details … Read More → "The World According to Analog: Why Our Digital Futures Depend on Analog"

Addressing the Gotchas: LCR Embedded Systems and the Case for Intelligent Modularity

What do thermal management, VPX, SOSA and submarine volcanoes have in common? This week’s Fish Fry podcast! First, I take a closer look at a new research project from the University of Leeds that hopes to unlock the mysteries of submarine megaplumes (and the immense energy produced by them) with a fleet of remotely operated vehicles deep in the North East Pacific ocean. Steve Gudknecht (LCR Embedded Systems) … Read More → "Addressing the Gotchas: LCR Embedded Systems and the Case for Intelligent Modularity"

Research meets Realization: InnovationLab Brings Organic Printed Electronics into the Mainstream

I’ve got three words for you: Printed Organic Electronics! My distinguished guest is Dr. Florian Ullrich from InnovationLab. Florian and I are talking all about the unique printing technology behind InnovationLab’s printed electronics, the details of InnovationLab’s collaboration with Evonik to produce the first fully printed rechargeable batteries for flexible printed sensors, and how InnovationLab’s shareholder structure encourages innovation big and small.

Predictive Maintenance Evaluation Kit for Smart Buildings

One of the myriad problems I face — in addition to (a) being persistently pursued by gaggles of groupies and (b) the fact that all of my groupies are cranky, cantankerous, and curmudgeonly old engineers of the male persuasion — is that of being inundated by barrages of information from companies scattered around the globe.

Being only human (although it pains me … Read More → "Predictive Maintenance Evaluation Kit for Smart Buildings"
