Is It a Bird? Is It a Plane? No, It’s Superflash memBrain!

Have you ever heard people talking about a new star of comedy, music, stage, or screen, describing them as “an overnight success”? If you investigate, you often discover that this “overnight success” followed a decade or more of hard work in the metaphorical trenches.

This reminds me of a cartoon I saw once talking about “the ‘peasant look’ that only … Read More → "Is It a Bird? Is It a Plane? No, It’s Superflash memBrain!"

New Avenues for ReRAM: When Every Bit is Critical

In this week’s podcast, we’re mixing up some resistive random-access memory, honey, and a dash of neuromorphic computing! It’s going to be delightful! Ashish Pancholy (General Manager and VP of Crossbar) joins me to discuss the biggest advantages of Crossbar’s resistive random-access memory (ReRAM) and why this kind of technology is perfect for secure applications, where every bit is critical. Also this … Read More → "New Avenues for ReRAM: When Every Bit is Critical"

Want to Make Your Data Impossibly Secure?

I’m currently ensconced in the command chair in the Pleasure Dome (my office) drooling with desire, as opposed to my usual modus operandi which involves me simply sitting here drooling. I now know that I want an SSD drive that is “impossibly secure” — so secure, in fact, that it renders my precious data invisible on the basis that attackers cannot compromise what they cannot see.</ … Read More → "Want to Make Your Data Impossibly Secure?"

Shhh! Aspinity’s AML100 Analog AI Voice & Vibration IC is Listening!

Although the vast majority of people in the embedded and IoT industries are bouncing back and forth and jumping up and down singing the praises of digital systems and digital signal processing (DSP), it’s the topics of analog systems and analog signal processing (ASP) that have been much on (what I laughingly call) my mind of late.

As I’ … Read More → "Shhh! Aspinity’s AML100 Analog AI Voice & Vibration IC is Listening!"

Equipping Machines with Extrasensory Perception

I was just perusing and pondering the official definition of extrasensory perception (ESP). This is also referred to as the “sixth sense” based on the fact that most people think we (humans) are equipped with only five of the little rascals: sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell.

As an aside, we actually have many more senses at our disposal, including … Read More → "Equipping Machines with Extrasensory Perception"
