re: Ditching directions, or intelligent (engineering) design

NO RATINGS
I look at it a different way. The directions should be considered as a tool in your toolbox. Depending on what task is at hand, you may or may not want to use the tool. For example, the instructions that come with a laptop computer aren't even worth the seconds it would take to read them. But what about the API specification for Java? That too is a type of "directions", and you would be a complete fool to write a program without them.

NO RATINGS
Back in the day, I worked with an outstanding programmer who refused to read development-system (or other) manuals. Reason: he wanted to play around with the product and user interface, to get a gut feel of what the development-system designers were thinking, how they appoached their design, what they set it up internally. Basically, he was trying to get into their heads. That way when he ran into a problem, he could figure out what was really happening and work-arounds. And the technique often worked.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
