AMFitzgerald and MEMS Infinity to Rule the PZT MEMS World

Generally speaking, I tend not to be interested in business-related announcements like strategic partnerships. I can’t tell you how many over-excited emails I’ve received informing me of something vague, fluffy, and wishy-washy along the lines of two companies planning to sign a memorandum of understanding that they may or may not collaborate to investigate the possibility that… by which time my eyes have glazed … Read More → "AMFitzgerald and MEMS Infinity to Rule the PZT MEMS World"

From Architecture to PCB Schematic in 60 Seconds!

Are you ready to meet the world’s first deterministic AI that helps electronic teams go from architecture to schematic in 60 seconds? We’re talking about algorithmic component selection and schematic generation technology that optimizes billions of component combinations, thereby allowing you to avoid datasheet doom-scrolling, reduce schematic errors, and design for supply chain resilience in minutes. What’s not to love?

AI Boldly Goes Behind the Beyond

I used to love the title sequence at the beginning of each episode of Star Trek: The Original Series starring William Shatner as Captain James Tiberius Kirk. I’m thinking of the part where the announcer waffled on about the Enterprise’s five-year mission “to boldly go behind the beyond, behind which no man has boldly gone behind, beyond, before” (or words to that effect). … Read More → "AI Boldly Goes Behind the Beyond"

Designing MPU/MCU/SoC/AI Hardware? Are You Sure Your Security Features Are Secure?

I’ve said it before, and I’ll doubtless say it again (actually, now I come to think about it, I’ve said “I’ve said it before, and I’ll doubtless say it again” before, and I’ll doubtless say it again; whatever you do, don’t get me rambling about recursion), I cannot help but don my frowny face when I think about those nefarious … Read More → "Designing MPU/MCU/SoC/AI Hardware?
