Tuesday morning at Design East 2012, Chris Hyde from ADI gave this first analog “design choices, compromises and decisions” presentation including performance considerations, architectural choices and common issues/gotchas.
Hyde discussed bridge sensor challenges and solutions with associated equations, bridge biasing, and linearity discussion.
The first keynote speaker, Mike Walsh gave a look into the future where “Demographics are destiny” and “It’s about anthropology, not just technology” -- listen to the people!
A full house of attendees listened to Walsh as he gave concrete examples of how cloud-based medical devices like a Star Trek Tri-corder will be a tremendous success in Africa; how Kick Starter products that get the most funding has the developer with the best story; how we need to immerse ourselves into the world of the consumer/users and capture their imaginations with “magic” (aka engineering).
More analog with Dr. Jose Fernandez Villasenor, a brain surgeon and an EE Medical manager at Freescale. Health insights and trends were discussed and electronic products to monitor and enhance our heath in preventive medicine.
