Calling All Secret Weapons: element14’s Fighting Germs Challenge and A New Way to Fight Superbugs

From COVID-19 to Superbugs, this week’s podcast is all about fighting germs and battling the spread of infectious disease throughout the world. First up, we delve into some groundbreaking research that may have just unlocked a new way to fight drug-resistant superbugs. We take a closer look at why a team of scientists at Biomedicine Discovery Institute at Monash University believes that they have not only found a way to boost our immune responses to superbugs but also fight inflammation due to these pesky pathogens as well. Also this week, Tariq Ahmad joins us to discuss element14’s Fighting Germs Challenge and how one element14 community member’s call to action encouraged a global design contest.

The Cryptography Handbook

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

The Cryptography Handbook is designed to be a quick study guide for a product development engineer, taking an engineering rather than theoretical approach. In this series, we start with a general overview and then define the characteristics of a secure cryptographic system. We then describe various cryptographic concepts and provide an implementation-centric explanation of physically unclonable function (PUF) technology. We hope that this approach will give the busy engineer a quick understanding of the basic concepts of cryptography and provide a relatively fast way to integrate security in his/her design.

MCU32 Graphics Overview

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Microchip

Graphical interfaces add a whole new dimension to embedded designs. But, designing a full-blown graphics interface is a major challenge for most embedded systems designers. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and Kurt Parker from Microchip Technology explain how you can add a modern graphics user interface to your next embedded design without a big learning curve.
