On the heels of Michael Barr’s keynote at EELive this year - "KILLER APPS: Embedded Software's Greatest Hit Jobs," this week's Fish Fry takes a closer look at embedded software for safety-critical systems. At the helm is Jim McElroy - VP at LDRA. Jim and I discuss the challenges of designing safety-critical embedded systems, and Jim explains where LDRA fits into the embedded software ecosystem. He also gives us the low down on why Boston Baked Beans get a bad wrap. (Spoiler: According to Jim, they totally deserve it.) I also give everyone a sneak peek at EE Journal’s brand new “On the Scene" video blog, and I lay out my revolutionary plans to restore the Embedded Systems Conference to its former glory. (Second Spoiler: They absolutely will not use my idea.)
We stormed the gates. We took no prisoners. Electronic engineering conferences will never be the same. EE Journal scoured this year's EELive Conference and Expo to bring you the the biggest trends, the coolest demonstrations, the best giveaways -- and this is just the beginning. In this week's Fish Fry, my guest is Matt Osminer, Director of Engineering at Cardinal Peak and the presenter of a special presentation at EELive called "Best Management and Technical Practices for Engineering an IoT Product". Michael and I chat about the unique challenges of designing connected products and investigate how (and why) management practices play a big role in designing for IoT. Also this week, I announce my top five highlights of this year's show - including details of Michael Barr's scary Tuesday keynote, some sugary delights at the Fantastical Theatre of Engineering Innovation and more.

This week's Fish Fry is packed to the gills with EE awesomeness but don't just take our word for it. Try it for yourself! First, we're stuffing ourselves with some unique research from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science. We check out how a team of researchers from KAIST hope to stem the ride of counterfeit parts, one silver nanowire fingerprint at a time. Next, we toast the winners of Newark element14's Smarter Life Challenge with Dianne Kibbey (element14). We dish with Dianne about the winning projects from this years contest and Dianne gives a tasty sneak peek into element14's next design contest. To finish off this week's episode, we dig into some sweet analog to digital conversion with high speed converters. The dinner bell is ring in' - it's time to rustle up some Fish Fry.

In this week's Fish Fry in-depth executive interview, I sit down with Synapse design CEO Satish Bagalkotkar. Satish and I chat about how today's rocky global economic climate has affected the electronics industry and how he sees the role of design services changing in the future. Also this week, we investigate a new Addicted Products toaster that may change the face of intelligent devices forever.

It was the best of tools, it was the worst of tools, it was the age of verification, it was the age of RTL power estimation. As we navigate through these tumultuous times of electronic design, we need a design tool compass to show us the way and Fish Fry is here to set the course. Frank Schirrmeister (Cadence Design Systems) and I hunt for the deep dark secrets of ARM-based design verification and examine how Cadence’s Palladium Emulation system fits into the verification landscape. Norman Chang (VP - Ansys) and I dip into the murky waters of ESD and together we swim toward a new solution that can make the most troublesome paths in our designs a little easier to navigate.
