Bright Ideas and Big MCUs

This week’s Fish Fry takes on Black Friday* — no coupons needed, and no standing in line necessary! In honor of today’s annual celebration of America’s shopping obsession, we go behind-the-scenes to check out the engineering ideas (big and small) that drive this gift-giving season. Dianne Kibbey (element14) rolls in with a shopping cart chock-full of innovation from element14’s Smarter Life Challenge, and Rich Hoefle (Microchip Technology) delivers the goods on the world’s fastest single-core 32-bit MCUs. (Can you imagine our holiday gift-giving season without MCUs? Neither can I.)

Also this week, we’ll tell you about a super cool new stocking stuffer – a roller ball pen that dispenses conductive silver ink and makes circuit board creation as easy as a quick doodle.

Let'€™s face it: We'€™re addicted to SRAM. It'€™s big, it'€™s power-hungry, but it'€™s fast. And no matter how much we complain about it, we still use it. Because we don'€™t have anything better in the mainstream yet. We'€™ve looked at attempts to improve conven...
