I have a special medical edition of Fish Fry this week! Wouter Charle (imec) and I investigate the newest advancements in microsurgery and hyperspectral imaging. We examine the trends in microsurgery today and the details of imec’s new hyperspectral camera, what challenges lie ahead for this kind of technology, and how imec is paving the way for even more advancements in this field. Also this week, I examine a new 3D bioengineered skin grafts developed by a team of bioengineers at Columbia University that could be a game changer for the treatment of severe burns.
In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, my distinguished guest is RISC-V CTO Mark Himelstein. Mark and I chat about the history of RISC-V, why RISC-V is more popular than ever before, the benefits that RiSC-V can bring to high performance computing, and how you can take advantage of the RISC-V Exchange. Also this week, I investigate a new incredible edible battery developed by the Italian Institute of Technology.
This week’s Fish Fry podcast is all about AI-driven verification! Matt Graham (Cadence Design Systems) and I examine the what, why, and how of Cadence’s new Verisium AI-driven verification platform. We investigate applications included in this platform and why this platform is a huge shift away from single-run, single-engine algorithms to algorithms that leverage big data and AI across multiple runs of multiple engines throughout the SoC verification lifecycle.
Field programmable gate arrays take center stage in this week’s Fish Fry podcast! Mid-range FPGAs to be exact! Gordon Hands (Lattice Semiconductor) and I chat all about Lattice’s new Avant Platform, the challenges this new platform is looking to solve, the details of Lattice Avant-E family, and why low power, form factor, interface availability are cornerstone to this new Avant FPGA Platform. Also this week, I investigate new origami-inspired robots that can sense, analyze and act in challenging environments.
Everything is Connected, Everything is At Risk: How Intrinsic ID is Helping Create a World That Can Be Trusted
“The Internet of Things devoid of comprehensive security management is tantamount to Internet of Threats” -Stephane Nappo
This week my distinguished guest is Pim Tuyls, CEO and Founder of Intrinsic ID! Pim and I investigate today’s biggest security trends, the details of Intrinsic ID’s new software-only solution called Zign, and why Pim thinks that US Cybersecurity Chip Act isn’t quite enough when it comes to legislation in the security arena.
The man, the myth, the legend Giovanni De Micheli (Nanni) joins me this week! Recently honored with the 2022 Phil Kaufman Award for Distinguished Contributions to Electronic System Design, Nanni has been a powerhouse in the world of EDA for a very long time. His work has expanded the fields of Network-on-Chip (NoC), high-level synthesis, and logic synthesis. In this episode, Nanni and I talk through< … Read More → "High Tech Heavyweights: EDA Legend Giovanni De Micheli"
Did you know imec and VUB have teamed up to develop soft robotic systems that can feel pain and self-heal? Bram Vanderborght (imec) joins me this week to chat all about it! We investigate the challenges inherent to soft robotics, how an integrated approach and several breakthrough innovations made these robotic systems possible, and where Bram thinks soft robotics are headed in the future.
IoT interoperability is the name of the game this week my friends! Sujata Neidig from NXP joins me this week to talk all about Matter! We discuss the IoT interoperability issues Matter is looking to help solve, the topology of a Matter network, two new wireless MCUs within NXP’s Matter portfolio, and where Matter is headed in the future. Also this week, I investigate new seaweed based … Read More → "Matter to the Rescue: Solving the Challenges of IoT Interoperability and Compatibility"
In this week’s military and aerospace themed Fish Fry podcast, longtime friend of the show Nigel Forrester and I investigate the role of timing in SOSA (Sensor Open Systems Architecture) systems. We also discuss the benefits of assured positioning, navigation, and timing (A-PNT) for military applications, and why spoofing and jamming are critical challenges to solve in this domain. Also this week, I check out the details of a new Star Wars-esque hybrid, autonomous, military UAV developed by BAE Systems that can fold its wings and fit into a shipping container.
Hitting the Laws of Semiconductor Physics: How an ASIC Model for IP Can Encourage Multi-Die System Innovation
You scream for IP. I scream for IP. We all scream for IP! In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, Manmeet Walia (Synopsys) and I investigate the evolution of IP and the role that IP will play in the future of multi-die systems. We also discuss why a shift in the semiconductor ecosystem is pushing a movement toward ASIC and COT models, the benefits of an ASIC model for IP, and how standards are helping accelerate innovation in multi-die systems.
