Connecting the Disconnected: Avoiding Design Pitfalls with Altium’s Nexar Network

This week’s podcast is all about building a better foundation for electronic design lives. Ted Pawela (Altium) joins me to discuss Altium’s new Nexar platform that will connect PCB designers with software,  manufacturers, and suppliers. We chat about the motivations behind the creation of this new cloud platform and how it aims to make the design, creation and manufacture of printed circuit boards a whole lot easier. Also this week, I investigate a new "self-aware" metamaterial created by a team of researchers at the iSMaRT Lab at the University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of Engineering. I also take a closer look at the details of this new metamaterial system which includes the ability to behave as its own sensor, record and relay information and even generate its own power.

 

The World According to Analog: Why Our Digital Futures Depend on Analog

In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, we investigate the analog data conundrum with Tom Doyle and Marcie Weinstein from Aspinity. We take a closer look at the power and data challenges of processing at the edge, what Aspinity’s new analog machine learning IC is all about, and the details of their new evaluation kits that utilize their analogML core. Also this week, I dig into the details of a new organic, metal free, non-toxic battery developed by Texas A&M University. (Spoiler Alert: It can be recycled by breaking it down in acid!)
