Some people call this artificial intelligence, but the reality is this technology will enhance us. So instead of artificial intelligence, I think we’ll augment our intelligence.” —Ginni Rometty
It takes 8,460 bolts to assemble an automobile, and one nut to scatter it all over the road. – Author Unknown
Hello, my name is Amelia and I have read at least four hundred press releases about automotive design this week. It seems that this year’s Consumer Electronics Show has been taken over by automotive design. But behind the pomp and sparkle of CES lies the important stuff – the software that keeps us safe and secure. In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, my first guest Jim McElroy (LDRA) and I chat about security vulnerability … Read More → "Security from the Ground Up"
5G goes beyond the regular operator business; it’s a business revolution.” – Borje Ekholm
In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we travel down the 5G road with Frank Schirrmeister (Cadence Design Systems). Frank and I are dishing the dirt aboutwhat it will take to implement 5G systems and how architecture analysis and performance verification will be crucial to a smooth road ahead. Also this week, we announce the winners of the “Hitchhiker’s Guide to PCB Design” T-shirt giveaway!
‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the lab
Not a tech was stirring, not even in the fab;
The daughter cards were hung by their headers with care,
In hopes that St. VPX soon would be there;
In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we are diving deep into the world of VPX. Dave Caserza, Michael Munroe, Ovidiu Mesesan (Elma Electronic) join me to chat about the future of VPX, the challenges of signal integrity in VPX backplane designs, and why your simulation is only as good as your … Read More → "Clear and Present Signals"
In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we investigate the changing role of NAND flash in safety-based systems. Dave Hughes (CEO – HCC Embedded) joins us to discuss HCC’s “Safety Element out of Context” embedded software approach and how HCC helping engineers better use NAND flash in safety systems. Also this week, we give everyone another chance to win a “Hitchhiker’s Guide to PCB Design” T-shirt!
In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we take a closer look at a IoT landscape that could not only reduce our battery power dependence but could also make a “forever battery” a reality. David Su (CEO – Atomic Technologies) and I discuss Atmosic Technologies’ holistic approach to power management, the details of their lowest power radio technology, and how their controlled energy harvesting is integral to their new SoC families. Also this week, we check out Kickstarter’s Make 100 Campaign and how FPGAs can help get your next IoT design off the ground.
What do Douglas Adams, PCB design, DRAM for cryptocurrency, and the fourth Industrial Revolution have in common? This week’s episode of Amelia’s Weekly Fish Fry, of course! First up, Greg Roberts (EMA Design Automation) brings us the goods on EMA’s new ebook called “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to PCB Design”. Next, Mark Greenberg (Cadence Design Systems) and I chat about using DRAM4 for artificial intelligence and crypto applications. To finish things up, we check out how Space Tango is looking to usher in a new industrial revolution – in space!
Did you know that the United States is the world’s biggest target for cybersecurity attacks? According to Ponemon’s 2018 Cost of a Data Breach Study, 38% of the global cyber attacks were aimed at the United States. This study also found that the average time it takes to identify a data breach is 196 days. Yeah, let that just sink in for a second. So can we turn around this whole situation? In this week’ … Read More → "Privacy by Design"
What has sparsity done for you lately? In this episode of Fish Fry, we investigate the challenges that surround on-device artificial intelligence processing. Megha Daga (Cadence Design Systems) and I discuss the why the presence of zeroes is becoming more and more important in the development of neural networks and how sparsity can be used for bandwidth and compute reduction. In this week’s News You May Have Missed, we check out how the the University of Adelaide is making huge strides in quantum memory technology with a little help from an atomic tractor beam and the world’s … Read More → "The Significance of Sparsity"
This week’s podcast is coming to you from the land of vineyards, grapevines, and MEMS magnetic field sensors — Napa Valley, California! In this episode of Fish Fry, we have an interview with each of the entrants of this year’s MEMS and Sensors Executive Congress Technology Showcase (think of it like a mini “Shark Tank” for MEMS stuff). We’ve got the skinny on a new wearable continuous blood glucose monitor, a new wearable brain impact monitor, new “smart” skates, and more!
