One Size Does Not Fit All: The Rise of Bespoke Silicon

Move over off-the-shelf chips, bespoke silicon is coming your way! In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, Walt Hearn from Ansys joins me to discuss the rise of bespoke silicon, the need for open multi-physics platforms, collaboration in the EDA ecosystem, and more. Also this week, I investigate a new bacteria powered wearable device developed by a team of researchers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. (Spoiler Alert: The bacteria works better when it's dead!)

 

The Road Forward for IoT: Cellular, LoRa, and WiFi - Oh My!

The Internet of things is not a concept, it is a network, the true technology enabled network of all networks” - Edewede Oriwoh

In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, Marc Pegulu from Semtech and I chat about the future of IoT, the pros and cons of the various networks we need to support our Internet of things ecosystem, and where LoRa and LoRaWAN fit in the grand scheme of IoT. I also examine how an off-the-shelf IoT wearable device is able to detect COVID-19 infection before symptoms appear for the first time. 

 

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.

 

The Art of Predictability : How Axiomise is Making Formal Verification Mainstream

In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, Ashish Darbari (Founder and CEO at Axiomise) joins me to chat about the past, present and future of formal verification. Ashish and I explore the three pillars of formal verification, how the perception of formal verification as changed over the years, and why we are seeing the increased adoption of formal verification today. Also this week, I delve into the details of a new immune-system-on-a-chip developed by the Wyss Institute at Harvard university.

 

The Next Evolution of Robotics - InOrbit’s Plans for Robots and AI in the Workforce

Robots big and small take center stage in this week's Fish Fry podcast! Florian Pestoni (CEO - InOrbit) joins me to discuss the future of AI and robotics in the workforce. Florian and I also chat about the details of InOrbit’s cloud-based robot management platform and why Florian believes that the next step in digital transformation will be software-defined X. Also this week, I investigate new micro-bots developed by a team of researchers from Japan's Okayama University and Linköping University in Sweden that can self-heal bone and may make the treatment of compound bone fractures much easier in the future. 

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.

Every Breath You Take: Imec and miDiagnostics Launch a Revolutionary Breathalyzer Test for COVID-19 and Beyond

In this episode of Fish Fry, Peter Peumans (Imec) joins me to discuss an exciting breakthrough in COVID-19 testing spearheaded by miDiagnostics and Imec. We take a closer look at what sets this new kind of testing method apart from other testing methods on the market today, the details of Imec’s silicon chip technology that lies at the heart of this new technology, and how this kind of testing method could revolutionize how we test for other diseases in the future. Also this week, we check out a new 3D printing method developed by a team of researchers from the University of Notre Dame and Purdue University that integrates functional and structural materials into a single streamlined printing platform.

 

Building a Bridge Between Technology and Diplomacy: The Purdue Research Foundation Launches the Center for Tech Diplomacy at Purdue

In this episode of Fish Fry,  I am happy to announce that Mung Chiang (EVP and Dean of Engineering College at Purdue University) is joining me to discuss the new Center for Tech Diplomacy at Purdue University. Mung and I discuss the multi-layered connection between technology and freedom and how this new tech tank will build a bridge between the worlds of technology and diplomacy. Also this week, I check out new research from the National Institutes for Quantum and Radiological Science and Technology in Japan that may have cracked the code of benefit and cost-based motivation (Spoiler alert: It involves manipulating the dopamine receptors of macaque monkeys!).

Let’s Get Speedy! Digital Signal Processing for Always-On Systems, Sensor Fusion and Computer Vision

What would a Friday be without a deep dive into digital signal processing for computer vision and AI? In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, Pulin Desai (Cadence Design Systems) joins me to discuss the need for increased speed in computer vision algorithms today, the unique processing requirements for sensor fusion, 3D capture, always-on systems, and the details of Cadence’s new Vision Q8 and Vision P1 DSPs. Also this week, I take a closer look at a new research study at the University of Gothenburg that contends that machine learning may be the key to finding effective testing methods during epidemic outbreaks.
