Wirelessly Going Where No Man Has Gone Before

Africa, Atmel and the MEMS in Between

This week’s Fish Fry is all about wireless technology and how it is shaping the world today. First up, I interview Martin Squibbs from Atmel about a big announcement in the world of RF transceivers. Martin talks to me about a technology that may change the roadmap for battery-operated wireless applications in the industrial and consumer market places. Next up, I check out how wireless technology is shaping medical care in Africa, and finally I’ve got a short Interview with Karen Lightman about the MEMS Industry Group and how they are looking to carve out new avenues for future MEMS applications.

Also this week, I have a MACHXO Pico Development Kit courtesy of Lattice Semiconductor to give away, but you’ll have to listen to find out how to win.
