Pushing the Display Envelope : Pixelworks’ New AI-Driven Architecture and the World’s Largest Photo Ever Taken in a Single Shot

We’ve got your pixels here! Piping hot pixels! In this week’s podcast, we start things off with an investigation into the world’s largest digital camera being developed at The U.S. Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. We take a closer look at the creation of the focal plane for this groundbreaking new camera and the role that the first 3,200-megapixel digital photo (the largest ever taken in a single shot) will play in solving some of the biggest mysteries of the universe. Keeping with our pixelated theme this week, Vikas Dhurka (Pixelworks) and … Read More → "Pushing the Display Envelope : Pixelworks’ New AI-Driven Architecture and the World’s Largest Photo Ever Taken in a Single Shot"

Adventures in Machine Learning: From Logic Simulation to Exoplanet Identification

Machine learning takes center stage in this week’s Fish Fry podcast! First, we examine a new machine learning algorithm developed by researchers at the University of Warwick Department of Physics and the Alan Turing Institute. We take a closer look at the datasets used in this new algorithm and why this groundbreaking research will help confirm the existence of exoplanets and significantly speed up our understanding of the universe. Keeping with our machine learning theme, Paul Cunningham (Cadence Design Systems) also joins us this week to discuss the details of Cadence’s new machine learning-optimized Xcelium logic simulation … Read More → "Adventures in Machine Learning: From Logic Simulation to Exoplanet Identification"

The ElephantEdge Challenge: Developing The World’s Most Advanced Elephant Tracking Collar

This week’s podcast is all about The ElephantEdge Challenge and how you can help build the world’s most advanced elephant tracking collar. Adam Benzion (Co-Founder – Hackster.io) joins us to discuss the details of The ElephantEdge Design Challenge, what The OpenCollar initiative is all about, and how you can get involved to help save this vulnerable species from extinction.

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 </ … Read More → "Calling All Secret Weapons: element14’s Fighting Germs Challenge and A New Way to Fight Superbugs"

Constructing A Better Future: Building a Responsible Society through Edge Processing and Bricks for Energy Storage

In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, we take a closer look at how edge processing can help us build a more responsible society. Gowri Chindalore (NXP) and I discuss the role data management and power efficiency will play in the future of edge processing and how edge processing can help facilitate an equitable, responsible, and productive society. Also this week, we investigate a new technology created at Washington University in St Louis and how it could transform the world’s cheapest and most familiar building materials into electricity storage.

Cylynt and Stealthy

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, its quantum internet…?  In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, we start things off with an exploration into the US Government’s plans for a country-wide quantum internet. We investigate the roles quantum entanglement and quantum superposition will play in the future of a quantum internet and what steps will need to be taken to make this kind of unhackable internet a reality. Also this week, Ted Miracco (Cylynt) joins us to discuss why the fight against IP theft is nowhere near done, why SmartFlow Compliance Solutions is now Cylynt and … Read More → "Cylynt and Stealthy"

Advancing into FinFET

In this week’s podcast, we are talking about embedded in-chip monitoring and lifecycle chip design challenges with Stephen Crosher and Oliver King from Moortec. We also take a closer look at a new breakthrough in data storage technology and why a team of researchers from Stanford, UC Berkeley, and Texas A&M believe that tiny slices of tungsten ditelluride may just hold the key to the evolution of data storage.

From the Fish Fry Vault: The Great Shark Cafe

Since Fish Fry is on short hiatus (don’t worry, new episodes will be coming back soon!), I thought I would share another of my all-time favorite episodes.  When we talk about the best Fish Fry podcast episodes here at EE Journal, my producer Larra Morris is always quick to point out that her favorite was “THE SHARKS!” 

Since March of this year, FATHOM Dynamic Advanced Manufacturing has pivoted their business … Read More → "From the Fish Fry Vault: The Great Shark Cafe"

Running the Long Game: New RISC-V Based SoCs and Using Technosignatures to Find Alien Life

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a RISC-V Fish Fry! In this week’s podcast, we first investigate how the search for alien life just got a lot more interesting with the help of a unique grant from NASA, the SETI institute, and a team of esteemed researchers from across the United States. We take a closer look at the details of this new research project and how it is hoping to find signs of alien life on distant exoplanets using technosignatures. Also this week, Sammy Cheung (CEO – Efinix) joins us to discuss how Efinix … Read More → "Running the Long Game: New RISC-V Based SoCs and Using Technosignatures to Find Alien Life"

The Dividends of Persistence: Intel’s Optane Memory and Advances in DNA Storage

“The world is one big data problem.” – by Andrew McAfee, co-director of the MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy

In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, we investigate Intel’s Optane™ persistent memory and how this new innovative memory can help make actionable insights more approachable and make your next data-centric design a whole lot easier. We also take a closer look at some new technology developed at North Carolina State University that will shape the future of DNA storage technology.
