SPICE SPICE Baby!

Adventures in FAST Spice and Secret Message Jelly Fish

by Amelia Dalton

What do SPICE and a new material inspired by the skin of squid and jellyfish have in common? This week's episode of Fish Fry of course! First up, Zhihong Liu, Chairman and CEO of ProPlus Solutions joins us to discuss trends in the SPICE world, the challenges of displacing circuit-level FastSPICE simulators, and why he thinks table tennis is the best sport in the world. In the second half of our episode, we investigate a new type of material inspired by the reactionary skin of squid and jellyfish developed by a team of researchers at the University of Connecticut. This newly developed material may change how we interact with our cellphones, how we trade in our electronics, and how we send (secret) messages as well.
