Exactly What the Doctor Ordered: Cars that Monitor Their Health and Yours Paul Golata
One of the trends in cars is AI, enabling autonomous driving, such that vehicles can stop in emergency situations before colliding and also to arrive at their destinations with less risk and peril for all. To enable this reality, each system must be equipped with control, monitoring and sensing. 

Feeling Blue? Human Health in Light of LED Streetlights Paul Golata
White LEDs used in street lighting may consist of packaged combinations of Red, Green, and Blue LEDs, but more often than not employ blue LEDs, which are built generally from indium gallium nitride (InGaN) and have a yttrium-aluminum-garnet (YAG) (Y3Al5O12) phosphor coating placed on their emitter or emitter’s optic. From the base color of blue light, white light can be realized and utilized for white LED streetlights. But does this blue light found in LED streetlights make humans experience any negative impacts?

Xpress Your Designs to the World! Microchip MPLAB® Xpress Development Board Paul Golata
I have recently incorporated the Fractal Audio AX8 as an all-in-one Amp Modeler + Multi-Effects Pedalboard Processor in lieu of my traditional amplifier. And as a base rock-n-roll patch, I have programmed the Trainwreck Express.

ASI and the Death of Mankind: What, Me Worry? Paul Golata
Some people see Artificial Superintelligence (ASI) ultimately bringing into play human immortality—making it possible to enable a variety of human or technological enhancements that counteract the aging process. Doing so will increase human life expectancy, possibly very significantly. However, if ASI is ultimately realized and becomes part of the human condition, what is the potential for human extinction based upon the actions of an ASI? It is conceivable that an ASI may one day view human life as unacceptably inefficient and without significant purpose in relationship to any programmed goals.

Creating a Sound People Can't Resist: MELF Resistors Paul Golata
As a Senior Technology Specialist, I am always interested and looking at the most advanced technologies and applications. When it comes to audio, I recently became aware of something that I had never really spent any time on considering, the ubiquitous resistor. I had soldered oodles of them on to various guitar effects and amplifier repairs over the years, but have never spent much real time investigating their sonic qualities.

Illuminate, Inspire, Lead Paul Golata
It is typical at a trade show to see an extensive number of product and application breakthroughs. However, some companies go out of their way to focus on the betterment of mankind and our environment, where great obstacles exist. A few of these new developments are truly illuminating. One such company that I became acquainted with at the show is Nokero.

King of the Road Paul Golata
Recently a major LED lighting supplier, OSRAM, announced that the 2015 Ford F-150 will be the first truck to feature a full LED forward lighting system. A key performance and styling differentiator, the innovative LED lighting system is comprised of a low beam, high beam, light driver module, turn module, and park module.

White Noise, Cubicles & Fluorescent Lights Paul Golata
For most of us, it’s what we have to do to pay our bills so that we can live the lifestyle we want. We have to wake up and go to work.

Bike Night Light Brite Paul Golata
Do you recall growing up as a kid and playing with Lite-Brights? I can remember it almost like it was yesterday. It came with that ubiquitous patterned picture to make a clown face and a sail boat. The fun came from completing the build out the pattern and then flipping the off the light switch and seeing everything glow, lighting up the darkness.

Bowling, Baseball and Battles: What they have in Common with LEDs Paul Golata
I’m a guy. That means I’m extremely competitive. When I was dating my wife, Dianna, and if we played any games together, I would be relentless in my competitive approach and make sure I crushed her, demonstrating my total domination of all things. Then she asked me to bowl. That stupid ball never seems to roll where I aim! Dianna was a good bowler and took pride in silently racking up the pins, while I stewed in my anguish. In bowling the perfect score is 300. I can hardly get to half of that. In baseball the mark of an excellent hitter is to have a career batting average of .300 or better. As of 2013 there have been 205 players who have batted at least .300 (minimum of 3,000 plate appearances). This is a small number when you think about the number of players who have ever played the game.
