Quadric CPU Combines AI with Conventional Code

Another day, another new microprocessor architecture. There was a time in the Nineties when everyone and his dog was designing a new processor. They were all going to revolutionize the world, crush Intel, enable new cutting-edge devices, and show us how it’s really supposed to be done. The nerd journals were filled with new CPU acronyms like RISC, VLIW, IPC, EPIC, ROB, ILP, SSE2, TLB, … Read More → "Quadric CPU Combines AI with Conventional Code"

If You Can’t Trust TrustInSoft, Who Can You Trust?

If you are a hardware design engineer, you are doubtless familiar with the concept of formal verification as it applies to hardware design, but have you ever considered how formal verification might relate to software and the developers thereof (bless their little cotton socks)?

Life can be a rum old thing, and no mistake. When it comes to formal verification, … Read More → "If You Can’t Trust TrustInSoft, Who Can You Trust?"

Better than a Human Driver: Trusted Electronics and Functional Safety

In today’s Fish Fry podcast, we have a virtual sundae of electronic engineering goodness. We’ve got a scoop of autonomous driving, a scoop of IIoT, a little Infineon secret sauce, and a whole lot of sprinkles… because what good is a sundae without sprinkles, right? First up, Phil Hutchinson (element14) joins me to discuss element14’s “Low Power IoT Design Challenge with Infineon Technology”. We take a … Read More → "Better than a Human Driver: Trusted Electronics and Functional Safety"

Machine Vision Meets Hackathon: ADLINK’s 20/20 Hack Solves Real World Problems

Who loves a good ol’ fashioned hackathon? In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, we are talking about encouraging innovation in machine learning with ADLINK’s recent 20/20 Vision Hack. Paul Wealls (ADLINK) and Sergio Velmay join me to discuss the motivations behind creation of this hackathon, the details of Sergios’s winning project entry, and how ADLINK and Intel are looking to help solve  real-world problems in … Read More → "Machine Vision Meets Hackathon: ADLINK’s 20/20 Hack Solves Real World Problems"

Quantum Practicality and You: How Intel is Solving the Quantum Computing Interconnect Bottleneck

“A classical computation is like a solo voice—one line of pure tones succeeding each other. A quantum computation is like a symphony—many lines of tones interfering with one another.” – Seth Lloyd

In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, Stefano Pellerano (Intel Labs) joins me to discuss the interconnect </ … Read More → "Quantum Practicality and You: How Intel is Solving the Quantum Computing Interconnect Bottleneck"
