This week’s episode of Fish Fry is absolutely brimming with geeky goodness! First, I check out some new Dungeons and Dragons names created by optical research scientist and neural network trainer extraordinaire Janelle Shane. Next, I chat with Matt Burns (Samtec) about the trends in interconnects and how interconnects are going to lead the charge in the advancement of data center technology. Finally, I investigate DOCOMO’s new … Read More → "Drones, Dragons and Data Centers"
We’ve always been pretty impressed by Achronix – and for good reason. In an FPGA market where countless startups have tried and failed, Achronix somehow built themselves into a successful, independent, profit-making FPGA company. That’s not an easy task, and it required numerous “pivots” on the part of the company.

Last week, software leviathan Microsoft gobbled up minnow Express Logic and its well-regarded RTOS, ThreadX. The financial terms of the agreement were not … Read More → "Microsoft Buys Express Logic RTOS Company"
In general, we like light hearted stories on Fish Fry. We like “smart” forks that tell us when we should stop eating. We enjoy 3D printing robots that make pancakes with the faces of famous people. All of that is fine and dandy but sometimes, we have to talk about more serious stuff. Today we are talking about when safety and security is mandatory, when failure is life or … Read More → "When the Undecidable Becomes Decided"
