Are we really using the edge to the best of our ability? Sure, VR and AR are cool, but are they the best case for engineering and business development at the edge? In this episode of Fish Fry, I sit down with Kevin Hannah (Director of Product Operations- Kazuhm) and chat about why he thinks artificial intelligence should take center stage at the edge and why our ability to process the tsunami of information that is coming at us from 5G, IoT, and Big Data is going to depend how successfully artificial intelligence is deployed at the edge.

“Toto, I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore” – Dorothy, The Wizard of Oz
We’ve all been there. We’ve lost of our way and the road ahead is more than just a bit fuzzy. In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, I sit down with Lou Lutostanski (Avnet) and chat about why IoT projects are so challenging and what we can do if we find ourselves stuck in “IoT Purgatory.” Keeping with our IoT theme, we also investigate how Purdue University is looking to protect our smart implanted devices with electro-quasistatic … Read More → "Avoiding IoT Purgatory"
In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we are delving into the world of RFSoCs, radar, ruggedization, and reliability. Rodger Hosking (Pentek) joins us to discuss the details of the Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC and we take a closer look at the benefits and challenges of this unique single-chip adaptable radio platform. Also this week, Justin Moll (Pixus Technologies) and I talk about how the various levels of ruggedization can pose specific thermal challenges in our designs and how the right enclosure can make all the difference.
In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, Scott Engle (Mercury Systems) and I investigate the coexistence of safety and security in world of avionics and why the key to security in aviation may be tied to the reclassification of security-related failures. Keeping with our aviation theme, we also take a closer look at how FORDISC (a windows-based interactive software program) may have just solved the mysterious disappearance of Amelia Earhart once and for all.
What do Moore’s Law, the Von Neuman Bottleneck, and alpha-band brain activity have in common?! This week’s episode of Amelia’s Weekly Fish Fry! Matthew Burns (Samtec) joins us to discuss how we can prepare for the next wave of high speed fabrics in embedded computing and why these new faster fabrics will make our design lives harder not easier. Also this week, we take a closer look at new research that contends that human brain waves respond to changes in Earth-strength magnetic fields.< … Read More → "Faster Interconnect! Go! Go!"
In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we investigate the challenges SoC Design with ClioSoft CEO Srinath Anantharaman. Srinath and I are chat about the hidden advantages of IP management, the challenges of global design teams, and how IP reuse can make all the difference in your bottom line. In this week’s Kickstarter corner, we also take a closer look at the details of a new mind-controlled drone called the UDrone!
In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we are headed to the smallest of the small process geometries: 2nm! My guest Ruben Molina (Synopsys) and I are talking about how exactly we are going to get started with these tiny process nodes and how technical advisory boards are driving the charge toward standardization and process architecture specification. Also this week, we take a closer look at the world’s first mobile skin bioprinting system unveiled by the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine.
Multicore processing takes center stage in this week’s episode of Fish Fry. Richard Jaenicke (Green Hills Software) and I discuss the challenges of multicore processing in avionics applications and how we can address multiple layers of safety certification on a software level. We also chat about the power of testing in avionics and and why you can’t mitigate multicore interference at the application level. Also this week, we investigate the details of Lockheed Martin’s new research project called “Self-Assembly of Nanostructures for Tunable Materials.”
Speech recognition is becoming more and more critical in IoT designs these days. In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, Gerard Andrews (Cadence Design Systems) and I are talking about the trends in voice control user interfaces, the advantages of locally-enabled speech recognition, and the differences between neural network processing for audio and imaging applications. Also this week, we celebrate Valentine’s Day with a special selection of neural network-created candy heart slogans and pick up lines.
In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we gaze up at the starlit sky and dream of space exploration. We chat with Noel Dube (Reflex CES) about the differences between Low-Earth Orbit (LEO), Geosynchronous Equatorial Orbit (GEO) and Very Low Earth Orbit (VLEO) and investigate the unique challenges each of these orbits present designers today. We also discuss the role of optical transceivers and interconnects will play in the future of satellite installation. In the second part of our episode, we explore the world’s first refuel-able steam engine system for spacecraft propulsion developed by Honeybee Robotics and … Read More → "When You Just Can’t Fix It"
