STEM: Too Much or Not Enough?

Around the time I graduated college, starting salaries for engineering graduates were climbing rapidly. My first raise was a whopping 13 percent, so I could be making slightly more than the next year's crop of EE graduates.

Dell's smells and the FAA by Luke Schreier

Two stories jumped out at me this week. The first was the long-anticipated announcement by the Federal Aviation Administration that passengers will be able to use personal electronic devices during all phases of flight, which now notably includes take-offs and landings.

NO RATINGS
You've probably noticed that 28Gbit/s serial links are hot topics at DesignCon. The IEEE 802.3 working group specifies four lanes at 28Gbits/s in the emerging 100 Gigabit Ethernet family of standards for copper wires and backplanes.

Jitter: Measurement References Matter
MeasurementBlues   11/8/2013 10:19:40 AM
NO RATINGS
If you characterize high-speed digital signals, you're surely familiar with the idea of separating jitter into components such as random jitter (RJ), deterministic jitter (DJ), periodic jitter (PJ), and intersymbol interference (ISI). What is not always discussed is the reference from which jitter measurements are made.

Check out the animated graphics of sinusoidal jitter.
