The solution to some problems requires both analog & digital expertise -- either an analog engineer & a digital engineer, or a "digilog" enginer :)

Nice work

Love your work Glen. Really good faultfinding.  Goes to show - Analog skills will never really go out of fashion!   We deal with similar boards in PABXs and suchlike and I wouldn't even think of deliving as deep as this, we just junk them or return them to the manufacturer for repair if they go wrong.

Hey Martin, I once worked for a corp like that.  The marketeers would wait until someone else proved a concept and started making a few bucks off it, then would jump on the bandwagon and tell engineering they had to deliver in 6 months or miss the market window.

To which the standard eng response was "Then why didn't you morons ask for it 6 months ago?"

And yes, that place too went down the crapper.

When I was at GCA, the standard way of doing business was to sell a product with anunreasonable delivery date, then tell engineering.

Company is long out of business.

fascinating report Glen, blame the io esd :) for the sram error rate 

It seems most epic work gets done when various skilled people team-in as long as the analog ressource has more character and skills than ego and the digital guy is fast and verstalile in coding stuff out of his comfort zone.

After all it makes you wonder if sales&marketing driving the engineers crazy while keeping the communication channel open is one recipe for success.

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
