Fish Fry Meets Software Freedom Conservancy

Once in a while, we all need some help. When the vast landscape of our next software project makes our head hurt, we need a place to go to hang out and throw our ideas around. So – where do we go? Software Freedom Conservancy, that’s where. My guest this week is Bradley M. Kuhn – Executive Director of Software Freedom Conservancy. Brad and I chat about what Software Freedom Conservancy is all about, how we can participate, what projects they are working on, and I even slip in little question about New York City. Also this week, I check out the Tiny Engineer Superhero Emergency Kit and reveal how this tiny but mighty kit can impress your friends and family.

PolarFire SoC FPGA Family

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Microchip

FPGA SoCs can solve numerous problems for IoT designers. Now, with the growing momentum behind RISC-V, there are FPGA SoCs that feature RISC-V cores as well as low-power, high-security, and high-reliability. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with KK from Microchip Technology about the new PolarFire SoC family that is ideal for demanding IoT endpoint applications.
