Design Contests & Competitions
October seems like a long, long time ago. But it was way back in October that we launched our caveman caption contest, with the results being put to vote in November.
Well, it’s December now, folks, and we have a new festive sketch for you to sharpen your wits on, but before we figure out whose captions are naughty or nice enough for Santa, it’s time to announce October’s winner. We had some really cracking quotes for October. The favorites included BigTech’s “Grog is the marketing director for our legacy products,” Palf’s “Until morale improves, the clubbings will continue,” and Chuck.Hill’s “See food, throw spear. Only an engineer would make it more complicated than that.” But the absolute favorite, by popular demand, was Parreco’s gem of a line: “I think I figured out who the lone analog design engineer is in the room.” A full color print will be on its way to you in no time at all, sir. Valiant effort all around. Now, however, it’s time to vote for your f avorites from November’s caption contest, which you can do by clicking on over here. Also, don’t forget to put your best foot forward for this month’s contest. Happy captioning all! Related Content: Wizard of Woz? Caption contest Caption contest: Santa Claus is coming to town!

Doing Math in FPGAs Tom Burke
For a recent project, I explored doing "real" (that is, non-integer) math on a Spartan 3 FPGA. FPGAs, by their nature, do integer math. That is, there's no floating-point ...
