It's Friday. Do you really feel like working? Well then, take a break and test your test knowledge with a few questions. Answers appear on the last page. The questions originally appeared in Test & Measurement World. (In case you missed it, see last week's questions.)
Which of the following degrades a measurement system's ENOB (effective number of bits)?
Noise from gain-setting resistors within the instrumentation amplifier
We have one more set of questions coming next Friday. I'd like to run more of these types of posts, but need some help. If you have any qustions you's like to send for a future quiz, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Well at least all the questions were included this time! Only got 2/4 right though, I am a comms tech but got the two comms related ones wrong. But it was a pleasant diversion at the end of my Friday afternoon, many thanks.
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
