Sailing Into Tomorrow

The Intersection Between Sailing and Engineering and the World's First Foot USB Controller

In this week’s Fish Fry, I chat with Bill Neifert (Carbon Design Systems’ Chief Technology Officer) about the benefits of Carbon’s pre-silicon software development and architectural analysis, and how his love of sailing intersects with his passion for engineering.

Also this week, I get into the nitty gritty details of a new 3D printer specifically created to print chocolate, and I investigate how the new foot-operated digital interface unveiled by KMI might not be all that they claim it is.

I have a Lattice ECP3 Versa Development Kit to give out this week, but you’ll have to tune in to find out how to win.

If you like the idea of this new series be sure to drop a comment in the box below.
