Are we really using the edge to the best of our ability? Sure, VR and AR are cool, but are they the best case for engineering and business development at the edge? In this episode of Fish Fry, I sit down with Kevin Hannah (Director of Product Operations- Kazuhm) and chat about why he thinks artificial intelligence should take center stage at the edge and why our ability to … Read More → "The Curious Case of the Critical Catalyst"

Hardly a week goes by that some “disruptive” new technology makes the news (you’re welcome) with promises to upend everything we know about computers, software, consumer electronics, security, healthcare, etc. Many of those promises peter out, never to be heard from again. But enough of them … Read More → "Disruption in the 1920s"
Let’s start with one hard fact. There are a lot of companies developing new AI inference processors right now, and most of them won’t survive. We have heard reports that as many as 80 startups are currently funded to some level, and all of them are working hard on building better mousetraps, or at least building better specialized processors that could execute neural network models … Read More → "FlexLogix Accelerates Edge Inference"
Ah, Ethernet… our good, reliable, trusty friend from way back. So trusty, in fact, that our cars may soon be running a version of Ethernet for all of the electrification stuff. Leveraging something tried and true should certainly go without a hitch, right?
Well, certainly as compared to coming up with something entirely new, perhaps. But what’s this Ethernet … Read More → "More Efficient Time-Sensitive Ethernet"

We’ve all been there. We’ve lost of our way and the road ahead is more than just a bit fuzzy. In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, I sit down with Lou Lutostanski (Avnet) and chat about why IoT projects are so challenging and what we can … Read More → "Avoiding IoT Purgatory"

Way back in 1960, just after ICs were invented but before they became much of a force in the electronics market, the Electron Tube Information Council published a book titled “Tubes and Transistors: A … Read More → "When Tubes were Better than Transistors"
