I’m not a giddy software guru. I’m a hard-bitten hardware guy. I remember those days of yesteryear when I hadn’t even heard about esoteric things like virtualization, containerization, disaggregation, and other “-ations,” the discussion of which does my poor old noggin no favors whatsoever.
Now, by comparison, I know enough to nod knowingly and grunt appreciatively when … Read More → "Virtualized IoT Devices in the Cloud Run Faster Than Their Real-World Counterparts!"
Let’s Twist, Turn and Pressurize! Element14’s Robotics Challenge and New Robotic Grippers Inspired by Jellyfish
Are you ready to twist, turn and get your robotics groove on? Longtime friend of the show Phil Hutchinson from Element14 joins me this week to chat about Element14’s new Twist, Turn and Move Robotics Design Challenge. I also investigate a new kind of robotic gripper inspired by jellyfish.
A topic that is near and dear to my heart takes center stage in this week’s podcast: sustainability. Iain Galloway (NXP) and Richard Fix (Bosch Sensortec) join me to discuss how you can help solve real-world societal challenges with the NXP HoverGames. We also discuss the variety of components and technologies provided to contestants of this unique design contest and why sustainable food ecosystems is the … Read More → "Sustainability and Positivity: Solving Real World Problems with NXP HoverGames"
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"
In this week’s podcast, I investigate edge-based data capture and AI computing in military programs with David Freeman (Mercury) and Randy Hayes (VAST Data Federal). We discuss the challenges involved with big data, mission critical AI and machine learning applications in rugged environments and how a new data center-class, all-flash network-attached storage system can help solve these issues. Also this week, I check out a new autonomous off-road … Read More → "Operation Data Capture: Solving the Challenges of Battlefield Big Data and Mission Critical AI"
