Tiny Turbines, Real Superhero Powers, and Servers-on-Chip

One part server-on-chip, two parts green energy – with a heavy sprinkling of superhero powers – this week’s Fish Fry takes on advances in connectivity. We investigate the University of Texas at Arlington’s unique collaboration with WinMEMS to create a new way to harness the wind to power your cellphone. Next, we chat with Mike Major (AppliedMicro) about how AppliedMicro is connecting the data center dots with some faster lines and finally, I’ll tell you how you might be able to get yourself some real superhero powers – using ultrasound.

We’re giving away a GertBoard (courtesy of Newark element14) to one lucky listener this week! Head on over to element14.com/fishfry to enter to win.

Why Measure C02 Indoor Air Quality?

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Sensirion

The amount of carbon dioxide in the air can be a key indicator in indoor air quality and improving our indoor air quality can have a slew of benefits including increased energy efficiency, increased cognitive performance, and also the reduction of the risk for viral infection. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Bernd Zimmermann from Sensirion about the reasons for measuring carbon dioxide in our indoor spaces, what this kind of measurement looks like, and why Sensirion’s new SCD4 carbon dioxide sensors are breaking new ground in this arena.
