In Part 1 of this miniseries, we considered some fundamental points like choosing your company and website names; also, getting a professional graphic designer to create your logo and templates for things like your letterhead and PowerPoint presentations. In Part 2, we cogitated on topics like the “look-and-feel” of your website, the importance of backing … Read More → "How to Start a Startup (Part 3)"

In my previous column, we noted that a lot of engineers are interested in starting their own company. We began by considering some of the “low hanging fruit” topics like choosing company and website names and getting a professional graphic designer to create your logo and templates for things like your letterhead and PowerPoint presentations. … Read More → "How to Start a Startup (Part 2)"
I’ve attended a lot of engineering conferences in my time. One of the topics a lot of younger engineers like to chat about is the idea of starting their own company. Now, although I’m not an expert in this area, I have been involved in starting a couple of companies, and not knowing much about … Read More → "How to Start a Startup (Part 1)"
Well, the hot news on the street this week -- if you live on a street where people are scampering around performing hardware acceleration on their algorithms -- is that those clever guys and gals at Achronix , who announced their state-of-the-art 7nm Speedster 7t FPGAs a couple of months ago, have teamed up with the creative chaps and chappesses at BittWare (a Molex Company), who just announced their VectorPath S7t-VG6 accelerator card.
The hot news on the street — if you live on a street where people build satellites and space probes for a hobby — is that those little scamps at Microchip Technology have just announced their new radiation-tolerant (RT) PolarFire FPGA, which they proudly proclaim, “…is optimized to meet the most demanding requirements in spacecraft … Read More → "To the Stars with Microchip’s New RT PolarFire FPGAs"
Recently, I was basking in my comfy command chair relishing the adverts on television. They’re really the only thing worth watching since the Gilmore Girls ended (my wife, Gina the Gorgeous, and I just finished watching the re-runs… again) and while one is waiting for the next season of Doctor Who starring Jodie Whittaker to … Read More → "5G Meets 50,000 Fans at Super Bowl 2025"
One of the perennial questions I keep getting asked is, “What is an embedded system?” Strange as it may seem, the problem isn’t that we lack a definition, but rather that we have too many – many of which subtly or overtly contradict each other. For example, some people would state that an embedded system … Read More → "What the FAQ is an Embedded System?"
In Part 1 of this 3-part miniseries, we discussed the origins of artificial intelligence (AI), and we considered some low-hanging AI-enabled fruit in the form of speech recognition, voice control, and machine vision. In Part 2, we noted some of the positive applications of AI, like recognizing skin cancer, identifying the source of outbreaks of … Read More → "The Artificial Intelligence Apocalypse (Part 3)"
In Part 1 of this 3-part miniseries, we cogitated and ruminated on the origins of artificial intelligence (AI). We also started to look at some of the “happy face” aspects of AI in the form of speech recognition, voice control, and machine vision. Let’s continue with our happy faces for a moment. AI is now … Read More → "The Artificial Intelligence Apocalypse (Part 2)"
Since time immemorial, humans have been drawn to the idea of creating artificial creatures and intelligences. In Jewish folklore, for example, a golem is an animated anthropomorphic being formed from inanimate clay or mud (as an aside, Helene Wecker’s break-out novel, The Golem and the Jinni, will have you on the edge of your seat … Read More → "The Artificial Intelligence Apocalypse (Part 1)"
