Fast Times in Supply and Demand: How the EDDI Report Can Help Determine How Difficult Sourcing Will Be

“What gets measured gets improved.”  - Peter Drucker

In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, Daniel Schoenfelder from Altium joins me to discuss the EDDI (Electronic Design to Delivery Index) report, how it can help you source components for your next design and what it can tell us about where the supply chain stands today.  Also this week, I take a closer look at a new machine learning algorithm developed by the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory that can predict how long a lithium-ion battery will last.

Consolidation and Collaboration: MCUs and The Future of the Automotive Industry

Motors big and small take center stage in this week’s Fish Fry podcast! Marcello Williams Silva (Infineon) joins us to discuss trends in automotive designs. We investigate how consolidation is changing the automotive landscape, the role that parallel processing units will play in future automotive and eMobility designs, and the critical design elements we should consider when it comes to our automotive designs. Keeping with our motorized theme this week, I also check out the first DNA-based motors that combine computational power with the ability to burn fuel and move in an intentional direction.

 

The Need for Chips is Inevitable: How EMD Electronics is Planning for Tomorrow

This week I am happy to announce that Anand Nambiar (Global head of Semiconductor Materials at EMD Electronics) is joining me to discuss technological innovation amidst a global supply chain shortage. Anand and I discuss why EMD Electronics has pledged an investment of one billion dollars to support customers in the United States and a total of 3.5 billion dollars on a global scale. We discuss how this investment supports not only capacity expansion but also new material and technology innovation. Also this week, I take a closer look at a new 3D printing method developed by University College London that allowed them to 3D print medicinal tablets in seconds.

 

Lift Every Voice: How Sensory is Using AI to Pave the Way for Better Voice Technology

Do you hear what I hear? I hear some fish fryin’! In this week’s podcast, Todd Mozer (Chairman & CEO of Sensory) joins us to discuss the future of voice control and speech recognition in electronic design. We discuss Sensory’s new cloud-based voice and vision AI service called sensoryCloud.ai, how this new service allows companies to have full AI deployments and the data generated from them, the details of their speech recognition solutions aimed at children’s voices, and where Todd thinks voice control in automotive designs are headed in the future. Also this week, I take a closer look at what really happens in the brain when hearing becomes listening and how new research from the University of Basel may have unlocked the key to solving this age-old question.

Verification for You and Me! DVCon U.S. 2022 and The New Cadence Midas Safety Platform

Design verification is the name of the game of this week’s Fish Fry podcast. First up, John Dickol (DVCon 2022 U.S. Program Chair) and I chat about this year’s DVCon Virtual Conference, the new two stage paper submission process for this year’s conference and what you can expect by attending. Also this week, Robert Schweiger (Cadence) joins me to discuss why standardization is crucial to functional safety design today and the details of Cadence’s new Comprehensive Safety Solution for Faster Certification of Automotive and Industrial Designs.

Changing the UI and UX Paradigm One Touch at a Time

In this week’s podcast, super tiny technology is taking center stage! First up, I check out world’s first and smallest sensor that can enable touch gestures through any material. Dan Goehl (Co-founder and Chief Business Officer at UltraSense Systems) joins me to discuss how UltraSense’s new 3D ultrasound sensor is going to usher in a whole new era in user interfaces. Also this week, I investigate the world’s smallest antenna developed by a group of researchers at the Université de Montréal and how this new nanoantenna will help scientists better understand nanotechnologies and identify new drugs.

The Indy Autonomous Challenge

On your mark. Get set. Let’s fry some fish! In this week’s podcast I am happy to bring in Joe Speed from ADLINK to talk all about the Indy Autonomous Challenge, the first autonomous race car competition at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway! Joe and I dig into some of the behind-the-scenes work at this first of its kind autonomous challenge including details of the ADLINK AVA-3501 series rugged edge platform that was supplied to each of the teams, the IAC base vehicle software, and more!

 

Learning Reality: Seoul Robotics’ 3D Perception Software with Deep Learning and Cell Variability May Unlock AI Learning

In this week’s podcast, HanBin Lee (CEO - Seoul Robotics) and I chat about their innovative 3D perception software with deep learning, what sets it apart from other 3D computer vision software solutions on the market today, and the details of their plug-and-play LiDAR perception system called Voyage. Also this week, we take a closer look at a new research study coming out of the Imperial College London that suggests that variability between brain cells might speed up learning and improve the performance of the brain and future AI.

Taking Piracy out of the Driver’s Seat

In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, Ted Miracco (CEO - Cylynt) and I discuss the increased prevalence of software piracy in the automotive industry and what can be done to stem the tide of unauthorized software use today. We also discuss the current state of cybersecurity today and the details of their upcoming Cylynt Connect Software Monetization and Anti-Piracy Summit.  Also this week, I investigate a new soft and stretchable metal alloy-based energy harvester that converts movement into electricity developed by a team of researchers from North Carolina State University. (Spoiler alert: it works underwater too!)

The Hidden Security Risks of Automotive Electronic Systems

What comes to mind when you think of an automotive energy source? I’m guessing of all the things you could possibly imagine tamarind shells wouldn’t be one of them… but maybe they should be. To start things off in this week’s Fish Fry podcast, I take a closer look at a new multi-national research study that could pave ways to supply energy to cars. (Spoiler Alert: It involves creating carbon nanosheets from tamarind shells!) Keeping with our vehiclular theme, Adrian Cosoroaba (Windbond) joins me to discuss the hidden security risks of automotive electronic systems.
