Why are we using C? Signal Processing DesignLine Blog 7/3/2006 Post a comment C is such a lousy language for DSP. Why are we still using it? Why don't more people use tools that generate code directly from a block diagram?

This week, America celebrates 230 years as a country; next year EE Times will celebrate 35 years as a news and information enterprise. We're not the same animal we were. I don't think we could be, even if we wanted to. Today we cover technology, design and product developments globally, and our dispatches flow to every corner of the design-engineering world in more than a half-dozen languages.
Gaining freedom Industrial Control DesignLine Blog 7/3/2006 Post a comment In one way or another, much of the activity in industrial control involves standardization. Ethernet is taking over, wireless networking standards are slowly inching forward and a host of specifications from the ISA, OPC and others are also gaining steam.
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
