Keeping Pace: Interconnect Standards, Racing Rats, and Combatting COBOL Craziness

This week’s Fish Fry podcast is a virtual grab bag of electronic engineering goodness! In our first segment, I investigate how a group of researchers at the University of Richmond taught a group of rats how to drive and why this research could help us better understand neuroplasticity and neuropsychiatric conditions in humans. Next, Mike Walmsley (TE Connectivity) joins me to discuss the importance of interconnect standardization and what the next generation of interconnect technology will look like. Finally, I give an update on the growing need for COBOL programmers and how IBM and the Linux Open Mainframe Project have gotten together to help states navigate this COBOL craziness.

GaN FETs: D-Mode Vs E-mode
Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Nexperia
The use of gallium nitride can offer higher power efficiency, increased power density and can reduce the overall size and weight of many industrial, automotive, and data center applications. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and Giuliano Cassataro from Nexperia investigate the benefits of Gan FETs, the difference between D-Mode and E-mode GaN FET technology and how you can utilize GaN FETs in your next design.
