In this week’s podcast, I chat about the future of EDA, the details of DVCon2024, and the feasibility of artificial intelligence for design verification with Tom Fitzpatrick – DVCon 2024 Conference General Chair. I also investigate new insect-inspired, fully functional micro-robots that may be the smallest, lightest, and fastest mini-robots ever created!
The Importance of Supply Chain Resilience – Common Points of Failure, Obsolescence, and The Path Forward
Obsolescence and supply chain resilience take center stage in this week’s Fish Fry podcast! Longtime friend of the show GDCA CEO Ethan Plotkin and I chat about the challenges of obsolescence, how legacy equipment manufacturers can support national security and economic strength, and how the “Hill, Skill, Will Matrix” applies to OEM product discontinuation. Also this week, I revisit one of my favorite topics here on Fish Fry: 3D printing, except this time, I’m investigate the newest advancements with 3D printed brain tissue.
How about some analog design to start off your Friday? Celera CEO Pat Brockett and Celera COO Alberto Viviani join me this week to discuss the challenges of automating analog design, why there is a widespread need for custom analog chips, and how Celera is dramatically changing the face of analog chip design. Also this week, I investigate new sound-powered sensors and how these passive sound-sensitive sensors could save millions of batteries from landfills.
My podcast guest this week is Razi Raziuddin, CEO of FeatureByte. Razi and I explore the details of FeatureByte’s self-service AI feature platform, what Razi believes are the biggest challenges for the development and innovation in the world of AI, and how FeatureByte’s platform can radically simplify the entire AI data lifecycle.
Fresh from this year’s Embedded Tech Trends Conference, this week’s podcast is all about open standards in military and aerospace applications. First, Simon Collins from Abaco Systems and I chat all about AI in defense applications, recent trends in RF performance in military and aerospace designs and how open architecture systems can enable cutting edge capabilities in these kinds of systems.

My podcast guest this week is Deepali Trehan, VP, Intel Programmable Solutions Group Product Marketing. Deepali and I are diving head first into the world of chiplets and FPGAs! We discuss why there is a big interest in chiplets lately, the biggest benefits that chiplets provide when it comes to the design and manufacture of programmable logic devices and where Deepali sees chiplet technology headed in the future!
My podcast guest this week is Meghali Chopra, CEO and Co-Founder of Sandbox Semiconductor. Meghali and I investigate how Sandbox Semiconductor is empowering the semiconductor manufacturing industry with the help of user-friendly, domain-specific software solutions. Meghali and I also walk through the different components of their Sandbox Studio including their AI analysis and visualization application called Sandbox Oculus, the analytics provided by their platform, and Sandbox Envision which helps engineers to visually interact with their process models and data. Also, this week I take a closer look at the curious similarity between the memory processing of AI models and … Read More → "The Art of the Process: How Sandbox Semiconductor is Accelerating Semiconductor Process Development"
We are diving headfirst into the world of RTL design this week! Rob Knoth (Cadence Design Systems) and I chat about RTL design and implementation issues facing engineers today, the details of Cadence’s Joules RTL Design Studio and the role that artificial intelligence plays in this solution. Also this week, I check out the world’s first human brain-scale neuromorphic supercomputer.
EV charging takes center stage in this week’s podcast! My guest Adam Urban (Director of Engineering – SparkCharge) joins me to chat about how SparkCharge is changing the EV charging landscape. We dig into the details of their Roadie mobile DC fast charger, what their SparkCharge Out of Charge (OOC) Program is all about, and where Adam sees EV charging heading in the future. Also this week, I investigate how the feathers of a eastern bluebird could help usher in advancements in battery technology.
