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"

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?

Generative AI Is Coming to the Edge!

Over the past few months, I’ve waffled on (as is my wont) about various flavors (ooh, tasty) of generative artificial intelligence (GenAI). On the menu were items like GitHub Copilot, which generates code (throwing in errors and security vulnerabilities for free), and Metabob from Metabob (can you spell “Zen”), which looks at the code generated by GitHub Copilot and takes the bugs and security vulnerabilities … Read More → "Generative AI Is Coming to the Edge!"

We Already Have Cars That Can See, How About Cars That Can Hear?

As I’ve mentioned before (and as I will doubtless remark on again), if we were to inquire as to how many senses humans have, most people’s knee-jerk reaction would be to say “Five” and to recite those senses we were all taught at school: Sight, Sound, Smell, Taste, and Touch. In reality, as I wrote in a blog about the possibilities of alien life, we all have as many as 20 senses, or more. … Read More → "We Already Have Cars That Can See, How About Cars That Can Hear?"

Within Five Years, All New Cars Will Be Able to See at Night!

A few evenings ago as I pen these words, my wife (Gina the Gorgeous), your humble narrator (I pride myself on my humility), and a number of other people were visiting at a friend’s house. There were about 20 of us. Only non-alcoholic drinks were consumed. It was dark when we all decided to head for home. Some were walking. I was driving. At least one of … Read More → "Within Five Years, All New Cars Will Be Able to See at Night!"
