Students build a really cool computer Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 1/31/2007 Post a comment Not exactly a "micro" -- this beast comprises nine square feet of prototype boards, sixty yards of wire, seventy-nine LEDs, and fifty-three integrated circuits.
Do NOT press that big red button! Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 1/25/2007 Post a comment While giving a tour of a data center, a manager flipped what he thought was a light switch; sadly, this turned out to be an ill-placed control for an entire bank of servers...
A positive plethora of cool websites! Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 1/17/2007 Post a comment Here are some cool sites that have crossed my desk in the last couple of days, from transistor museums to the dangers of using restrooms to the horrors of Wii.
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
