Are You Ready to Lay Your Hands on the World’s First Universal Processor?

One of the things I really enjoy is bacon sandwiches, but that’s not what I wanted to talk about here. Another thing I enjoy is watching a startup company evolve from being a twinkle in its founder’s eye to purveying its first product.

Way back in the mists of time we used to call May 2020 (which is two … Read More → "Are You Ready to Lay Your Hands on the World’s First Universal Processor?"

We explore why this breakthrough in nanocrystal technology could lead to future devices with new abilities, what applications this would be … Read More → "Shaving Hairs and New Electronics: UChicago’s Nanocrystal Breakthrough"

Reimagining Moore’s Law – One Glass Chip at a Time

Let’s talk about chips! In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, Dr. Eyal Cohen (Co-founder and CEO of Cognifiber) joins me to unpack the photonic computing revolution. We investigate the details of Cognifiber’s glass-based chips, proprietary fibers, and embedded waveguides, and why the advancement of this kind of technology could revolutionize the world of edge computing. Also this week, I … Read More → "Reimagining Moore’s Law – One Glass Chip at a Time"

How the Intel 8088 Got Its Bus

The IBM PC (aka the IBM 5150) had such a massive impact on computing history that origin stories about the machine are legion. Many books have been written to tell the stories of a rag-tag group of isolated engineers in IBM’s Entry Systems Business, down in Boca Raton, Florida. William C. Lowe initially led the group. He got the job after he told IBM’s Corporate … Read More → "How the Intel 8088 Got Its Bus"
