Full Stack Future Proofing: How LEVL is Changing the Device Identity Game

Step right up ladies and gentlemen! We’ve got all sorts of fun lined up for this week’s Fish Fry podcast. Tim Colleran (LEVL) joins us to discuss LEVL-ID, what sets it apart this device identity technology from MAC randomization, and why full stack device Intelligence is key to its success. Also this … Read More → "Full Stack Future Proofing: How LEVL is Changing the Device Identity Game"

Say what? When it Comes to Voice Control, The Future is Now!

When I was a little lad about six years old growing up in England circa 1963, my mom and dad were both working, so I used to spend the halcyon days of summer up the road at my Auntie Barbara’s house hanging out with my cousin Gillian (who was one year younger than me) and the other kids on the street.

Say Goodbye to More Cloud Services

With all the turmoil in the world, it’s nice to know that we can rely on our connected cloud-based devices. Oh, wait. No, we can’t. They’re about as reliable as fifth-hand ’50s Fiat. 

Cloud behemoth Google went down last month, stranding thousands upon thousands of users around the globe who rely on Gmail, Google Docs, YouTube, Hangouts, … Read More → "Say Goodbye to More Cloud Services"

Hacking a Secure Air-Gapped Computer

Some security weaknesses would be hilarious if they weren’t so serious. And one man and his crack research team have found dozens of surprising ways to crack seemingly impenetrable computers. You’ve got to give them points for originality. 

There are a lot of ways to secure a computer, depending on what you’re trying to prevent. Do you … Read More → "Hacking a Secure Air-Gapped Computer"

Brain-a-Palooza! Advancements in Brain-Hand Communication and Your Brain on Code

In our first Fish Fry podcast of 2021, we sit down with Dr. Scott Frey (Miller Family Chair in Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Missouri) and chat about the challenges and newest advancements in brain-hand communication. We take a closer look at how Dr. Frey and his team are helping to personalize recovery from ‘lost’ limbs and … Read More → "Brain-a-Palooza!

An AI Storm is Coming as Analog AI Surfaces in Sensors

I worry that when writing these columns, I sometimes start by meandering my way off into the weeds, cogitating and ruminating on “this and that” before eventually bringing the story back home. So, on the basis that “a change is as good as a rest,” as the old English proverb goes, let’s do things a little differently this time.

Speeding Up Large-Scale EM Simulation of ICs Without Compromising Accuracy

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

With growing on-chip RF content, electromagnetic (EM) simulation of passives is critical — from selecting the right RF design candidates to detecting parasitic coupling. Being on-chip, accurate EM analysis requires a tie in to the process technology with process design kits (PDKs) and foundry-certified EM simulation technology. Anything short of that could compromise the RFIC’s functionality. Learn how to get the highest-in-class accuracy and 10X faster analysis.

i must say, based on some of the user support i get, it seems like some of these companies have junior engineers running the asylum. Just because some kid is a genius, that doesn't mean they employ professional best-practices, like, oh i dunno, thoroughly testing code before rolling it out, ...

No More "Times Lower Than" Hey Marketers and PR folks - this one's for you. In researching this article I repeatedly ran into official, presumably copy-edited materials that made claims that power was "75X lower" or "30 times less than" other solutions. This is absolutely wrong. Your audience for these materials ...

Hi Max, You always write a good read! Is there any update on this as to actual sample or any demonstration on what they claim? I would be looking for a pair new TWS based on this! Thank you.

Back in 1983, my group was developing a realtime multichannel measurement system that did a lot of calculation on each channel's data, so the data area was almost all per-channel rather than common to all channels. The software was written in assembler to run on an 8086. Rather than indexing each variable ...

Disappointed not to find any link to your "4-bit Heath Robinson Rube Goldberg (HRRG) microcontroller" in this article, or even on this website. And NO, I haven't heard about it, so keep talking ....

Quote:"But, as we pointed out above, a capable hardware engineer is pretty much mandatory to drive the HLS tool." As usual, another synthesis tool instead of what is really needed . Is it too hard to grasp the fact that design has to come before synthesis? If the design is ...

I personally think code obfuscation is silly. However, most companies wan't it not for security but to hide implementation details, what they consider proprietary IP, etc.
Posted on Dec 16 at 9:58am by BrianG61UK
Using code obfuscation for security is lazy. Far better to design for security and write the code so it's readable and can be peer reviewed to check it's properly designed for security.

Interface Age magazine used to distribute software on vinyl records in each month's publication circa 1977. If I recall it was in KC tarbell format and early computers like Kim-1 had a cassette/audio input circuit for loading the software. I don't recall DOS back then but there was basic and ...
