Patently Obvious

Patents, IEEE for EDA, and Sting’s Sister

Patent litigation – can’t live with it, can’t survive without it. This week we’re checking out some recent rumblings in patent litigation. We’re even bringing in a council person to help mediate the fight. OK, wait – that would be ‘counsel’. My guest is Dontatella Sciuto, the current president of the IEEE Council for EDA. Donatella and I chat about what the IEEE Council for EDA is all about, what project the council plans on attacking next, and why Donatella can call herself Sting’s sister.

ROHM's KX132-1211 & KX134-1211 Accelerometers

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and ROHM Semiconductor

Machine health monitoring is a key benefit in the Industry 4.0 revolution. Integrating data from sensors for vibration detection, motion detection, angle measurement and more can give a remarkably accurate picture of machine health, and timely warning of impending failure. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Alex Chernyakov of ROHM Semiconductor about the key considerations in machine health monitoring, and how a new line of accelerometers for industrial applications can help.
