Small is Beautiful: Trends in Small Rugged Form Factors and Making Fossil Fuels into Diamonds

You’ve got to think about big things while you’re doing small things, so that all the small things go in the right direction. – Alvin Toffler

What if we could use something that is universally hated to create something that most everyone loves? In this weeks podcast, we start things off with an investigation into how a group of researchers have created the first “clean process” synthetic diamond from petroleum and natural gas. Also this week, Ivan Straznicky (Curtiss-Wright) and I discuss the challenges of ruggedized small form factor designs and why he believes it is time for a new standards in this space.
