A Bear, a Transistor and a Process Node Walk Into a Bar

In this week’s Fish Fry, I interview James Wang (SmartBear Software – Vice President) about the age old gap between hardware and software designers and how SmartBear’s tool suite can help bridge that divide.  

Also this week, I check in on Samsung’s progress on 20nm process node and investigate how the National Science Foundation is trying to make the transistor obsolete.  

I have a DE0-Nano Development Board to give out this week, but you’ll have to listen to find out how you can win.
