Connecting the Dots

One Embedded Design at a Time

In this week’s Fish Fry (sponsored by Altera), I look into how Texas Instruments is ushering in a new wave of WiFi-enabled devices with their SimpleLink family of products. I chat with Matt Kurtz (Texas Instruments) and dig into the details about this new family of products — from what design challenges SimpleLink addresses, to the unexpected designs that could come from this technology. Also this week, I check out a new way to lose money: by betting on high tech announcements.

I have another MAX V CPLD Development Kit courtesy of Altera to give out this week, but you’ll have to listen to find out how to win.
