This week’s podcast is absolutely brimming with electronic engineering goodness! First, we investigate the details of new artificial eye that can be powered by sunlight, developed by a team of researchers at Hong Kong University. Next, Jason Clarke (Crank Software) joins us to discuss user interface design, what their unique Storyboard platform is all about, and how I can get an embedded app running in minutes.
Let’s face it. Just about anybody can throw a few billion transistors onto a custom 7nm chip, crank up the coulombs, apply data center cooling, put together an engineering team with a few hundred folks including world expert data scientists, digital architecture experts, software savants, and networking gurus, and come up with a pretty decent AI inference engine. There’s nothing to it, really. </ … Read More → "Endpoint AI FPGA Acceleration for the Masses"
I love science and technology. I also love beer and bacon sandwiches, but that’s nothing to do with this column, so don’t try to distract me. Generally speaking, I like to think I have a ringside seat at the forefront of technology. Recently, however, I must admit to starting to fear I was no longer riding the crest of the technology wave with regard … Read More → "Why, Hello FPGA and AI — How Nice to See You Together!"
Yes! This is it! At long last we’ve reached the final part of this epic saga into all things related as to why switches bounce and how to mitigate against this phenomenon; that is, how to debounce the little rascals.
On the off-chance you’ve only just run across this modest magnum opus, we should perhaps commence by noting … Read More → "Ultimate Guide to Switch Debounce (Part 9)"
I started working in high-level synthesis (HLS) in 1994 which, assuming my math is correct, was 26 years ago. In those early days, we referred to the technology as “behavioral synthesis” because it relied on analyzing the desired behavior of a circuit in order to create a structural description rather than simply converting from a higher-level structural description to a lower-level one.
