Just what is a Christmas Cracker? Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 12/28/2005 Post a comment Having been born in the UK, this is the time of year when I have to explain British holiday traditions to my American friends, such as "just what is a Christmas Cracker?"
I'm in Nixi Tube Heaven! Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 12/16/2005 Post a comment I've just been introduced to the "Mike's Electric Stuff" website, which provides a goldmine of information on early display technologies and other "stuff".
Mixed-signal FPGA is here to stay! Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 12/13/2005 Post a comment I've seen a number of devices that might be classed as "field-programmable analog arrays (FPAAs)" appear and disappear, but I think this one is here to stay...
OCP is the one for me! Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 12/7/2005 Post a comment Connecting IP cores together sounds easy if you say it quickly and wave your arms around a lot, but connecting these little scamps together is a non-trivial task.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
