Henny Youngman and The Law of Unintended Consequences: Fish Fry Welcomes Eric Bogatin

If there is a fire you are trying to douse, you can’t put it out from inside the house” – Thomas Jefferson in Hamilton

The man, the myth, the signal integrity legend Eric Bogatin joins Fish Fry this week! We discuss the propagation of misconceptions in our design lives, the law of unintended consequences and what the Henny Youngman principle is all about. Also this … Read More → "Henny Youngman and The Law of Unintended Consequences: Fish Fry Welcomes Eric Bogatin"

Eos Embedded Perception Software Sees All

Sit down, take a deep breath, and try to relax. In a few moments, I’m going to show you a video of people (well, dummies that look like people) walking in front of vehicles equipped with pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking systems. The results will make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck. I’m still shaking my head in disbelief at what I … Read More → "Eos Embedded Perception Software Sees All"
