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.
Michael Gielda of Antmicro returns to discuss open source methodology and the wide variety of projects they develop that feed back into the electronics ecosystem, including FPGA, AI, chip design and firmware projects.
Jonathan Beri of Golioth joins Chris to talk about the difficulty of standing up an end-to-end IoT solution, including working with web providers, dealing with firmware updates, interfacing with different business organizations and more.
Fredrik Kensander of KraftPowercon joins Chris to talk about creating very high current output power supplies used for things like plating copper onto circuit boards (and many other industrial applications). They discuss firmware, processors, power output stages, system architecture and more!
Dave and Chris discuss the benefits of focusing on a platform for finding work and whether that should tilt the discussion of generalist vs specialist. Also software explanations, downsizing, power stations, remote work, new dev boards and more!
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.
