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.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
