Yeah, VME boards and wire wrap; I feel your pain! Been there, done that, although not both at the same time. I'm a little pressed for time tonight, but I'll post more later.

Great story - I think an example for having a good requirements analysis also. I think situations like this occur more than what companies (or engineers) would like to admit.

This is really precious sharing of experience. Especially the bad "asynchronous state machines" habit is hardly known by many engineers. We always need a down-to-earth system guy.

This sounds too curiously like an antenna design job I just finished. p

Thanks for this behind-the-scenes amusing story. Besides illustrating the pitfalls of async design techniques, it also illustrates the importance of having a common design methodology among all members of the design team -- so success doesn't depend on a "wizard" flying by the seat of his pants.
