The car of the future

By Brian Fuller We’ve written all lot about the quickening pace of innovation in automotive electronics design. And you’ll recall the centerpiece of the first part of the Drive for Innovation was an all-electric Chevy Volt, which took us around North America. If you’re in automotive electronics design, you’re no doubt working on a very important and very cool piece

The Moore’s Law offramp

We worry a lot about Moore’s Law running out of gas right about now. Now comes former AMD CEO Hector Ruiz with this piece on Harvard Business Review’s blog: “There, however, is a possible “off-ramp” to Moore’s Law that offers new hope — not just of continued improvement in semiconductors but of an open, competitive playing field unlike the Intel-dominated

The Future of Demand Response Technologies

LOS ANGELES–So often, we get ahead of ourselves a consuming public, especially when it comes to technology innovation. Take power generation and smart-grid management. We know that electronics that drive enormous efficiency gains on the grid. After all, our smart phones can guide us to someplace we’ve never been, so why not immediately optimize all our home appliances to help
