What if we could revolutionize manufacturing and save energy at the same time? My guest is PulseForge CMO Stan Farnsworth and we are digging into the details of PulseForge’s new digital thermal processing. Stan and I investigate how this kind of thermal processing differs from traditional thermal processing and how it can vastly reduce the amount of energy used in manufacturing. We also take a closer look at each of PulseForge’s application areas, including curing and sintering, soldering and debonding, and why Stan believes that rethinking manufacturing is crucial to future electronic design innovation.
Are you ready for some exciting nanocrystal technology? I certainly hope so! In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, Igor Coropceanu joins me to discuss how he and a team of fellow researchers at the University of Chicago discovered a new way to make nanocrystals function together electronically. We explore why this breakthrough in nanocrystal technology could lead to future devices with new abilities, what applications this would be a perfect fit for, and why this study reflects a step forward in new material research as well.

Guiding Light: University of Chicago Research Team Develops a Whole New Class of Integrated Photonic Circuits
In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, we investigate a new ultra-compact integrated photonic device that could pave the way for a new class of integrated photonic circuits. University of Chicago Asst. Professor Alex High joins me to discuss how his team at University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering developed a new way to guide light in one direction on a tiny scale. We take a closer look at why this breakthrough could lead to even smaller photonic circuits and the details of a new element developed by this team at the University of Chicago that … Read More → "Guiding Light: University of Chicago Research Team Develops a Whole New Class of Integrated Photonic Circuits"
In this week’s podcast, we’re mixing up some resistive random-access memory, honey, and a dash of neuromorphic computing! It’s going to be delightful! Ashish Pancholy (General Manager and VP of Crossbar) joins me to discuss the biggest advantages of Crossbar’s resistive random-access memory (ReRAM) and why this kind of technology is perfect for secure applications, where every bit is critical. Also this week, I take a closer look at why honey might be a sweet solution for developing environmentally friendly components for neuromorphic computers.
Auditory Adventures: Cadence HiFi Digital Signal Processing and Unlocking the Evolution of Hearing in Humans
This week I am happy to announce that Anand Nambiar (Global head of Semiconductor Materials at EMD Electronics) is joining me to discuss technological innovation amidst a global supply chain shortage. Anand and I discuss why EMD Electronics has pledged an investment of one billion dollars to support customers in the United States and a total of 3.5 billion dollars on a global scale. We discuss how this investment supports not only capacity expansion but also new material and technology innovation. Also this week, I take a closer look at a new 3D printing method developed by University College London … Read More → "The Need for Chips is Inevitable: How EMD Electronics is Planning for Tomorrow"
In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, Ashish Darbari (Founder and CEO at Axiomise) joins me to chat about the past, present and future of formal verification. Ashish and I explore the three pillars of formal verification, how the perception of formal verification as changed over the years, and why we are seeing the increased adoption of formal verification today. Also this week, I delve into the details of a new immune-system-on-a-chip developed by the Wyss Institute at Harvard University.
The Rise of Smart Machines: How MicroAI is Accelerating the Development of Machines that Self Diagnose
Artificial intelligence is the name of the game in this week’s podcast. My guest is Yasser Kahn – Founder and CEO of MicroAI. Yasser and I chat about what sets MicroAI apart from other edge AI providers, the benefits of proactive maintenance at the edge versus the cloud, and how MicroAI is advancing the next generation of smart machines. Also this week, I take a closer look at how DeepMind’s new deep neural network – called Ithaca – is unlocking the secrets of ancient texts.
