Michael Gielda of Antmicro joins Chris to talk about simulating embedded hardware, from the microcontroller core all the way out to multiple units communicating on a mesh network (and beyond). Their open source tool (Renode) enables better firmware testing and more reliable systems.
Brandon Gilles and Brian Weinstein of Luxonis (makers of the DepthAI) join Chris to talk about how embedded computing will change in the next 5 years due to depth perception and AI image classification. The DepthAI board uses the Intel Movidius Myriad X chip, which enables many of these advances.
Eli Hughes of TZero joins Chris to talk about creating a business around a connected brewery monitoring system and the technologies that go inside of it. Also working with processors, switching from FreeRTOS to Zephyr and working as a “Pro Support” engineer.
Jared Wolff joins Chris to talk about creating a cellular IoT board and all of the pitfalls along the way. He also describes recovering from tech burnout, using the Zephyr RTOS, taking a board to production, and much more!
Kyle Dumont of Allspice.io joins Chris to talk about revision control for hardware projects. Allspice takes Altium projects and makes it easier to see changes and do design reviews for new designs. They also discuss the nature of revision control and what makes it difficult in hardware situations.
