This week Chris and Dave get sucked into talking about AI…but question what happens when it’s broadly used. Who will understand the underlying systems? Who will be able to troubleshoot? Chris also brings up his learning plan for new tech.
Past guests of the show (Alvaro, Ariel, Chris) return for an “impedance matching” episode where 4 people get together and discuss electronics. We also discuss things we expect or hope to see in electronics in 2023.
What’s the difference between a trade show and a conference? Chris returns from Embedded World (with COVID) and discusses with Dave, who is NOT going to start DaveCon. Also other news in the electronics space.
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.
Dave returns from his walkabout to talk with Chris while he’s shivering in Chicago (-23F the day of recording). They discuss dev boards, new chipsets, machine learning, checklists, high speed design, microcontroller features and much more!
