The Science and Art of Cooling and COTs

In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we’re talking about embedded power, COTS, the next generation of rail systems, intelligent cooling systems, and whether I need a witch doctor to cool my next chassis-based design. Justin Moll (Pixus Technologies) and I jump head first into the world of chassis cooling and electronics packaging, and Qianqian Shao (Artesyn Embedded Technologies) and I ride the rails to the to the next generation of rail systems. Also this week, we check out a new unique energy storage system called a "biological supercapacitor” that could revolutionize how we provide electricity to implanted medical devices.

House of the Rising Sun

What do carbon nanotubes, electromagnetic waves, and solar cell technology have in common? This week’s episode of Fish Fry, of course! Please join me and NovaSolix Founder and CEO Lawrence Cooke as we bask in the glow of NovaSolix's new solar cell technology. Larry and I discuss how their technology can collect light as electromagnetic waves, the details of their carbon nanotubes that are used as antennas to absorb the entire spectrum of light, and how this unique technology will be able to produce more energy than previous solar cell technologies.

Programmable Power to the People

He'd been here before, many times. He had procrastinated until he couldn’t put it off any longer. It had to be done. After a few cans of Mountain Dew and a giant sigh, he dove in. The experience wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t great. I know you’ve been through it too. Choosing the right power supply for your next design can be a drag, searching through part numbers until your eyes glaze, only to come up with a solution that (most of the time) is still not quite right.  In this episode of Fish Fry, we welcome Kapil Shankar from AnDAPT. Kapil and I take an in-depth look at AnDAPT 's on-demand power management solution. Also in this week’s Kickstarter Corner, we check out a new fundraising campaign called JeVois: Open-Source Quad-Core Smart Machine Vision Camera that could bring open-source machine vision to your next Raspberry Pi or Arduino project.

The Only Dot You Will Ever Need

It's a bird. It's a plane. It's a Kickstarter campaign! In this week's episode of Fish Fry, we start things off with UC Berkley startup Iota Labs who gives us an up-close introduction to their new physical push notification system called Dot. Also this week, Mike Long from LCR embedded systems joins Fish Fry to discuss the newest advances, challenges, and advantages of using using fiber-optics in embedded designs. To finish things up (and in celebration of Star Trek’s recent 50th Anniversary), we inspect the new Star Trek TNG Bluetooth® ComBadge available for pre-order from ThinkGeek.
