Communication big and small take center stage in this week’s Fish Fry podcast! Ruud Van Den Brink (TE Connectivity) joins us to discuss the future of single pair ethernet and how it will usher in new advancements in Industry 4.0. I also check out a new research study from the University of Turku in Finland that hopes to shed light on what happens to our brains during hypnosis. 

Looking Beyond to Today: Finding New Material Solutions with Intermolecular

What do new material synthesizing, device innovation, and lab-grown organs have in common? This week’s Fish Fry podcast of course! My guest is Casper van Oosten, (Business Field Head and Managing Director at Intermolecular, Inc., a subsidiary of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany). Casper and I are talking all about synthesizing new materials for device innovation, how Intermolecular is tackling challenges in electronics, life sciences, and health care with their new Innovation Hub, and how control at the atomic limit inspired Casper to get into the world of semiconductors. Also this week, we take a closer look at a new bioink developed at Lund University in Sweden that is making huge strides in the development of the 3D bioprinted human organs. 

The Future Will Be Open Source: How QuickLogic Is Changing the FPGA Landscape

In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, Brian Faith (CEO - QuickLogic) joins me to discuss Qomu: Open Source SoC Dev Kit That Fits in Your USB Port. Brian and I delve into the details of this new kit, examine its role within the QuickLogic Open Reconfigurable Computing (QORC) initiative, and how this kit is turning FPGA development on its head in more ways than one. Also this week, we take a closer look at a new desktop 3D hologram printer developed by LitiHolo and how you can start creating your own 3D printed holograms. 

The Next Great Leap Forward: How Paragraf is Bringing Graphene into Electronic Design Primetime

Graphene takes center stage in this week’s Fish Fry podcast! Simon Thomas (Paragraf - CEO) joins us to discuss why he believes that graphene can revolutionize the electronics industry, the role sticky tape played in its creation, and how Paragraf is bringing graphene from the lab into the real world. 

 

To The Skies And Beyond: Securing the Mission Critical Edge and A New Rocket Thruster to Mars

“If you’re not living on the edge, then you’re taking up a little too much space.” - Morgan Freeman

This week’s Fish Fry podcast is all about mission critical edge and solar flare-inspired rocket thrusters. (Mars here we come!) First up, we take a closer look at a groundbreaking idea for a new type of rocket thruster that could take us to Mars and beyond. We investigate why this technology is different from current space-proven propulsion devices and how this new kind of rocket thruster could make long distance space travel a reality. Also this week, Arun Subbarao (VP of Engineering - Lynx Software) joins us to discuss the challenges facing mission critical security today, what their LynxSecure separation kernel is all about, and where Arun thinks mission critical security is headed in the future.

A Mesh By Any Other Name Just Isn’t the Same: Breaking Rules and Making the Impossible Possible with Ansys HFSS Mesh Fusion

In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, we're making the impossible possible! We start things off with a closer look at the world’s first metamaterial developed by a team of researchers from EPFL Labs. We investigate the unique properties of this new metamaterial and how this research could pave the way for the development of advanced forms of mechanical metamaterials. Also this week, Matt Commens (Ansys) joins us to discuss HFSS Mesh Fusion. We check out the details of this new mesh fusion technology including how it will open up new avenues for simulation, and why it will help engineers break old rules to overcome the most challenging design obstacles.

The Next Big Thing! Ferroelectric Nonvolatile Memory and Tiny Aquatic Robots Inspired by Sea Creatures

We’ve got a virtual grab bag of EE goodness in this week’s Fish Fry podcast! First up, we take a closer look at some very unique robots unveiled by a recent research study at Northwestern University. We take a closer look at how these tiny robots (which are powered by light and rotating magnetic fields) are able to walk, roll, and transport cargo. Next, Stefan Müller (CTO and Founder - FMC) joins us to discuss the details of ferroelectric nonvolatile memory and what sets it apart from other memory solutions today. Finally, we check out what needs to be done in order for artificial intelligence or machine learning to get into mainstream edge devices.

 

Keeping the Quarantine Blues at Bay One Design at a Time Micro:bit v. 2 and The Retrofit and Recycle Challenge

You know...for kids. - Norville Barnes (The Hudsucker Proxy)

This week’s Fish Fry podcast is dedicated to being indoors and fighting off quarantine boredom for kids and adults alike!   Phil Hutchinson (element14) joins us to discuss the BBC micro:bit v2. Phil and I discuss the evolution of the micro:bit, how this new version differs from the previous version, and how the element14 community supports this unique learning platform. Also this week, we check out element14’s Recycle & Retrofit Challenge that might just help you keep the quarantine blues at bay while reducing electronics waste and upcycling vintage electronics. Finally, we check out a powerful new kickstarter campaign called the Solar Cow -  the World's first social project delivering real individual data of impact.

AI for Everything!

Artificial intelligence and machine learning take center stage in this week’s Fish Fry podcast. First, we take a closer look at how a new algorithm called ART (Automated Recommendation Tool) is ushering in a new age of enlightenment in the world of synthetic biology. We investigate how this revolutionary new algorithm was tested and what it means for the future of bioengineered cells. Aaron Tersteeg (Intel) also joins us this week to discuss Intel’s OpenVINO tool kit. Aaron and I chat about the biggest AI inferencing challenges facing us today, the details of the OpenVINO “write once, deploy anywhere” approach, and what you should keep in mind when starting a new AI project.

Nobody Wants A Failed Prototype - System-Level Simulation with Clarity 3D Transient Solver

In today’s ever-changing electronic engineering ecosystem, system modeling is more important than ever before. In this week’s podcast, Brad Griffin (Cadence Design Systems) joins us to discuss the limitations of system-level modeling today, how system analysis challenges are driving new levels of performance, and how Clarity 3D Transient Solver addresses critical system-level EMI challenges. Also this week, we take a look at the PufferBot - a new Pufferfish-inspired robot developed at the University of Colorado Boulder that aims to improve drone safety.
