One Standard to Rule them All: Matter and the Search for IoT Interoperatability

It’s the first week of 2022 and I’ve got Matter on my mind! In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, we are talking about the Matter open standard, which promises to transform the future of IoT connectivity. First, Roman Baker (VP of Software development at Infineon) joins me to discuss the development of this open standard and why Matter is so important to the future of IoT. Next, Sonal Chandrasekharan (Vice President of Bluetooth Products -  Infineon IoT Compute and Wireless Business Line) and I chat about Infineon’s recent expansion of their Matter-supporting wireless portfolio and what Infineon’s roadmap for the future looks like when it comes to this new open standard.

 

 

Fish Fry Special Edition: Makers Today! Dr. Gough Lui

Eyes on the Prize: element14’s Spy Nerd Challenge and MIT’s New Robot Finds Lost Items

In this week’s podcast, we start things off with a closer look at a new robotic system developed by a team of researchers at MIT called RFusion. We investigate how it combines RF information, visual data, and neural networks to find and retrieve objects with ease. (Spoiler alert: it can even find objects when they are buried under a pile and fully out of view.) Also this week, Tariq Ahmad (element14) joins us to discuss element14’s new Spy Nerd Challenge. We chat about the motivations behind the creation of this unique electronic design contest, how you can get involved and what you can win.
