Out of the Fab and Into the Frying Pan

Fryin’ up Some Semis with Mike Gianfagna

In this week’s Fish Fry, we’re throwing some FR4 on the barbie and frying up a side of silicon — eSilicon to be exact. My guest is EE Master Chef Mike Gianfagna from eSilicon. Mike always joins Fish Fry around this time of year, and this year we are discussing the state of the semiconductor union: what’s keeping us hungry for Moore, and what trends are boiling on high. Also this week, we check out a new crowdsourcing event called “The Iron Man Factory” that could make your dreams (and mine) of a 3D printed Iron Man suit a reality…if they can get Marvel to agree to it.
