Work Smarter Not Harder: Optimized Software Pipelines and A New Brain-Like Device Learns by Association

We are talking about working smarter not harder in this week’s Fish Fry podcast! To start things off, I investigate a new brain-like computing device developed by a team of researchers at Northwestern University and the University of Hong Kong. I take a closer look at how this new device is able to simultaneously process and store information and the details of the new synaptic transistor at the heart of this new device. Also this week, Nicu Penisoara (NXP) joins us to discuss the power of optimized processing pipelines. We chat about the different steps involved in a … Read More → "Work Smarter Not Harder: Optimized Software Pipelines and A New Brain-Like Device Learns by Association"

Addressing the Gotchas: LCR Embedded Systems and the Case for Intelligent Modularity

What do thermal management, VPX, SOSA and submarine volcanoes have in common? This week’s Fish Fry podcast! First, I take a closer look at a new research project from the University of Leeds that hopes to unlock the mysteries of submarine megaplumes (and the immense energy produced by them) with a fleet of remotely operated vehicles deep in the North East Pacific ocean. Steve Gudknecht (LCR Embedded Systems) also joins me this week to discuss the biggest challenges associated with VPX today and the role SOSA is playing in the evolution of VPX-based systems.
