Time of Flight Sensors, Trilobites, and Tunable Optics – What an Unlikely Combo!

STMicroelectronics has added a new member to its line of VL53 FlightSense TOF (time of flight) distance/ranging sensors, but this new sensor takes a radical departure from the previous generation by replacing a conventional lensing system with metalenses, developed in conjunction with a startup company called Metalenz and based on technology originally developed in a Harvard University metamaterial lab. According to Metalenz, this is the … Read More → "Time of Flight Sensors, Trilobites, and Tunable Optics – What an Unlikely Combo!"

Fish Fry 500: The Best of Artificial Intelligence (Now on YouTube!)

We’re only four weeks away from the 500th episode of Amelia’s Weekly Fish Fry. This week, we feature a topic that has taken on a bigger and bigger role in electronic engineering: artificial intelligence and machine learning. If you are interested in the largest AI processor ever made, neuromorphic computing, or how AI can predict the weather better than the weatherman - check out this selection of Fish Fry podcasts. … Read More → "Fish Fry 500: The Best of Artificial Intelligence (Now on YouTube!)"

Cloud First! Leveraging the Cloud for Your System Design

In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, Mahesh Turaga (Cadence Design Systems) and I dig into the details of the Cadence OnCloud platform. We investigate why designers are turning to the cloud for EDA, system design, and a whole lot more. Also this week, I check out a new artificial synapse developed by MIT that runs a million times faster than the human brain!
