Are you ready for some exciting nanocrystal technology? I certainly hope so! In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, Igor Coropceanu joins me to discuss how he and a team of fellow researchers at the University of Chicago discovered a new way to make nanocrystals function together electronically. We explore why this breakthrough in nanocrystal technology could lead to future devices with new abilities, what applications this would be …Read More →"Shaving Hairs and New Electronics: UChicago’s Nanocrystal Breakthrough"
I was just chatting with the folks atSynapticsabout their recently launchedFlexSensefamily of teeny-tiny multi-modal smart sensor processors. Actually, I was thinking about …Read More →"Reimagining How Humans Engage with Machines and Data"
FPGA place-and-route software goes too fast, said no one ever. In fact, FPGA vendors have spent considerable effort in making their design software run faster on multicore processors. A paper recently presented at the ACM’s FPGA 2022 conference titled “RapidStream: Parallel Physical Implementation of FPGA HLS Designs,” describes a very interesting approach to pushing HLS designs through FPGA design software running on multicore processors faster. The …ag亚博国际
When people talk of classic science fiction, there are several names that spring to mind, one being the English writer, artist, and anthology editor, Brian W. Aldiss, who is best known for his science fiction novels and short stories.
I was just skimming through his bibliography, and so many titles triggered memories from when I gorged myself on these tales …Read More →"Autonomous John Deere Tractor Farms All Alone"
The IBM PC (aka the IBM 5150) had such a massive impact on computing history that origin stories about the machine are legion. Many books have been written to tell the stories of a rag-tag group of isolated engineers in IBM’s Entry Systems Business, down in Boca Raton, Florida. William C. Lowe initially led the group. He got the job after he told IBM’s Corporate …Read More →"How the Intel 8088 Got Its Bus"
