Return of VPX – Standards, Trends and Supply Chain Security

In this week’s podcast, we have a virtual grab bag of electronic engineering goodness. We start things off with a story about the unique exploration of the Bennu asteroid. We take a closer look at how  NASA’S OSIRIS-REx mission successfully mapped out Bennu’s gravity field and how this information has provided vital clues about the formation of asteroids. Also this week, Rob Persons (Smart Embedded Computing) joins us to discuss supply chain security and Xavier Marchand (Interface Concept) and I chat about the trends trends encouraging change in the VPX backplane technology.

Terrible Things to Scare the Children: #adifferenthalloween with element14

It’s creepy! It’s crawly! It’s a design contest too! In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, Phil Hutchinson (element14) brings us the goods on this year’s spookily spectacular element14 Halloween design competition. Phil and I chat about some of last year’s creepy creations, why this year’s contest is slightly different than the year before, and how you can enter this unique Halloween design competition. Also this week, I check out how a group of astronomers discovered the oldest known black hole and why this discovery may help unlock the mysteries of the evolution … Read More → "Terrible Things to Scare the Children: #adifferenthalloween with element14"

Radar to the Rescue: How Ainstein is Improving Our Safety through mmWave IoT Sensing

In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, we start things off with a very special News You May Have Missed. In this segment, we take a closer look at how a team of researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine (in collaboration with IBM) have identified a “lonely” speech pattern using machine-learning models that can be used to detect loneliness in older adults.  We investigate how machine learning can help us unlock the mysteries of natural speech patterns and why this type of research may help us better understand a variety of psychological … Read More → "Radar to the Rescue: How Ainstein is Improving Our Safety through mmWave IoT Sensing"

By the Electronics Design Community, For the Electronics Design Community

In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, we have a special preview of next week’s AltiumLive 2020 Virtual Summit with Ted Pawela (COO – Altium). Ted and I chat about the goals of this year’s conference, why high speed design will take center stage again this year, and why this conference is a unique collaboration between different engineering communities. We also take a closer look at how a team at UC Berkeley discovered what could be the first building blocks to making carbon transistors and all carbon electronics a reality.

Intelligent Senses: Cyborg Locusts and First Humanoid Robot with Intelligent Vision

Did you know that locusts can smell explosives? Did you also know that we can now control their brains to pinpoint to exactly what they are smelling? In this week’s podcast, we start things off with a closer look at how two teams of research scientists created a set of specialized cyborg bomb-sniffing locusts. We check out how these locusts are able to sense explosive chemicals in the air, how they are able to track these explosive smells, and how we can now identify exactly what they are smelling by reading their brain waves. Also this week, Alessandro … Read More → "Intelligent Senses: Cyborg Locusts and First Humanoid Robot with Intelligent Vision"

The Future of Connected Cars: Automotive Cybersecurity and Software Fluency with C2A Security

We are navigating through the twists and turns of automotive security in this week’s Fish Fry podcast. Michael Dick (CEO – C2A Security) joins us for an in-depth discussion about the role software fluency plays in the realm of automotive security, the ongoing issues surrounding cybersecurity lifecycle management, and why Mike believes that without visibility we cannot have security.

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.
