I’m a digital logic designer by trade. In an ever-changing and increasingly unreliable world, I find the certainty of Boolean equations to be extremely reassuring. You know where you are with a Karnaugh map, you can trust a De Morgan transformation, and you can gratify your desire for single-bit transitions with a Gray code. By … Read More → "Aspinity’s Awesome Analog Artificial Neural Networks (AANNs)"

I’m currently so excited I can hardly speak (I can barely even manage a squeak) because today saw the launch of the Spintronics Kickstarter — an event for which I’ve been waiting in dread anticipation for weeks. As we will discuss, Spintronics is a new game suitable for ages 8 to 80+ in which players … Read More → "Spectacular Spintronics (Mechanical Electronics)"
Do you recall my earlier column When Genetic Algorithms Meet Artificial Intelligence? This reflected my discovery that the chaps and chapesses at Algolux are using an evolutionary algorithm approach in their Atlas Camera Optimization Suite. The idea here is that, when it comes to creating a new camera system, each of the components — lens … Read More → "Cloud-Based Genetic Algorithms and Computer Vision Applications"
Are you familiar with the Tracealyzer and DevAlert tools from Percepio? How about the Luos distributed (not exactly an) operating system from Luos? I don’t know about you, but for me, the past few days have been jam-packed with my learning all sorts of exciting nuggets of knowledge and tidbits of trivia pertaining to the … Read More → "New Paradigms for Implementing, Monitoring, and Debugging Embedded Systems"
The funny thing about knowing something yourself is that you tend to assume everyone else knows it also. This is especially true on a site like EEJournal that attracts electronic engineers and embedded systems developers from all walks of life. But the funny thing is — when you actually get to sit down and chat … Read More → "Want to Learn Programming and Microcontrollers?"
Perhaps not surprisingly in the light of all the cyber-attacks and data breaches we’ve been seeing recently, the topics of cyber-security, cyber-resiliency, and securing one’s supply chains are at the forefront of our minds. Several of my own columns have touched these topics in recent months, such as Yay! Finally! A Way to Secure the … Read More → "High Entropy is the Foundation for High Security"
One of the myriad problems I face — in addition to (a) being persistently pursued by gaggles of groupies and (b) the fact that all of my groupies are cranky, cantankerous, and curmudgeonly old engineers of the male persuasion — is that of being inundated by barrages of information from companies scattered around the globe. … Read More → "Predictive Maintenance Evaluation Kit for Smart Buildings"
When most people hear the term “counterfeiting,” their knee-jerk reaction is to think of currency, the counterfeiting of which is as old as the concept of money itself. Around 400 BC, for example, metal coins in Greece were often counterfeited by covering a cheap-and-cheerful material with a thin layer of a more precious metal. Or … Read More → "ID for the IoT? We Need the IDoT!"
I once worked for a large computer manufacturer that considered itself to be a “big cheese” in its headquarters’ hometown. For some reason, the folks who donned the undergarments of authority and strode the corridors of power decided to have a blitz on the local media channels — including newspapers, radio, and television — to … Read More → "Want to Learn AI?

Every now and then, someone comes up with an idea that makes me think, “Wow, that’s a great concept, why didn’t I think of that?” This was the case a couple of years ago when I was introduced to Jason Pecor from Alorium Technology. In turn, Jason introduced me to their XLR8 (“Accelerate”), which is … Read More → "FPGA-Based Arduino Clones on Steroids"

FPGA-Based Cloaking and Security Tech Helps Protect Equipment on IT and OT Networks from the Bad Guys
Jul 30, 2021
You can't attack what you can't see, and cloaking technology for devices on Ethernet LANs is merely one of many protection layers implemented in Q-Net Security's Q-Box to protect networked devices and transaction between these devices from cyberattacks. Other security technol...
