What comes to mind when you think of an automotive energy source? I’m guessing of all the things you could possibly imagine tamarind shells wouldn’t be one of them… but maybe they should be. To start things off in this week’s Fish Fry podcast, I take a closer look at a new multi-national research study that could pave ways to supply energy to cars. (Spoiler Alert: It involves creating carbon nanosheets from tamarind shells!) Keeping with our vehiclular theme, Adrian Cosoroaba (Windbond) joins me to discuss the hidden security risks of automotive electronic systems.
We look at science as something very elite, which only a few people can learn. That’s just not true. You just have to start early and give kids a foundation. Kids live up, or down, to expectations.” – Mae Jemison
Welcome to a new episode of our special edition podcast series called “Makers Today!”, where we highlight the movers and shakers in the Maker space.

Lorraine and I chat about her participation in the the #badass Women … Read More → "Fish Fry Special Edition: Makers Today! Lorraine Underwood"
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 closer look at the details of this contest including the motivations behind its creation and why collaboration is a crucial component with this design challenge. Next up, Bill Stewart (Infineon) … Read More → "Better than a Human Driver: Trusted Electronics and Functional Safety"
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 manufacturing, logistics and industrial applications with this unique program. Also this week, I check out how a group of engineers from the University of Illinois (with the help of two … Read More → "Machine Vision Meets Hackathon: ADLINK’s 20/20 Hack Solves Real World Problems"
“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 challenges inherent in quantum computing, why frequency multiplexing is crucial to quantum scalability, and how Intel is bringing quantum computing out … Read More → "Quantum Practicality and You: How Intel is Solving the Quantum Computing Interconnect Bottleneck"
In today’s Fish Fry podcast, we are making the planet a smarter and safer place with little help from LoRa! Marc Pegulu (Semtech) joins me to discuss the role LoRa is playing in global connectivity and how LoRa devices and applications can be used to reduce environmental impact across the world. Also this week, I take a closer look at new free, open-source software developed by the Stanford Natural Capital Project called Urban InVEST that has helped cities across the world better visualize … Read More → "How LoRa Can Help Us Build a Smarter and Safer Planet"
In honor of Women in Engineering Day, we are proud to launch a brand new special edition series of our long-running Fish Fry podcast called “Makers Today!” In this episode, maker, teacher, content creator for element14’s Learning Circuit, and Power Racing record holder Karen Corbeill joins us to discuss her role in the creation of an adult maker group called the Mad City Makers, what her STEAMboat workshops are all about, and where she sees the role of women … Read More → "Fish Fry Special Edition: Makers Today!

Let’s Get Speedy! Digital Signal Processing for Always-On Systems, Sensor Fusion and Computer Vision
Ready, Aim, Digitize! In this week’s podcast, we start things off by taking a closer look at the world’s first digital fiber fabric developed at MIT. We investigate how this new digital fiber is able to collect and store data and the role AI plays in how it is able to process that data as well. Also this week, Duc Huy Tran (Aitech) joins us to discuss the enablement of digital backbones for military applications, the evolution of COTs in the military and aerospace designs, … Read More → "The Digital Thread: The Advancement of Digital Backbones and the World’s First Digital Fiber Fabric"
This week’s podcast is all about building a better foundation for electronic design lives. Ted Pawela (Altium) joins me to discuss Altium’s new Nexar platform that will connect PCB designers with software, manufacturers, and suppliers. We chat about the motivations behind the creation of this new cloud platform and how it aims to make the design, creation and manufacture of printed circuit boards a whole lot easier. Also this week, I investigate a new “self-aware” metamaterial created by a team of researchers at the iSMaRT Lab at the University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of Engineering. I also … Read More → "Connecting the Disconnected: Avoiding Design Pitfalls with Altium’s Nexar Network"
