@David: The best thing about the WOM was the way the engineers pulled one over on the markting types.

Thw WOM datasheet really was a classic -- simple in concept and really well executed. The sort of thing with which you'd be proud to be associated.

@NetJohn: Did everyone forget Signetics' famous WOM (write-only memory) data sheet?

That was a classic -- on par with the famous "Black Noise Generator"

I think "new and improved flavor" means "we found some cheaper additives".

[This comment was inspired by an old New Yorker cartoon, where two chemists in white coats are sampling a new concoction in the lab.  One says to the other: "It needs additives."]

@Karen... "My goodness, how apt!!!!"

It was arrived at after 57 years of hard study, finally confirmed in the past decade or so by an intensive investigation of Microsoft software :-)

@davidashton ""New and Improved" - It has all the worst features of the previous version, and none of the best ones :-)"

 

My goodness, how apt!!!!

I'm always amazed by the marketing claim "new and improved flavor," makes you wonder what sort of rotgut you were drinking (or eating) that promopted someone to want to improve the flavor.

That reminds me of the billboards I've seen driving around the West.  Who is this Les Schwab guy anyway, and why does he have my tires???

@GSKrasle And look at page 10 of this: http://media.digikey.com/pdf/Data%20Sheets/Panasonic%20Semiconductors%20ICs%20PDFs/AN79Lxx,%20AN79LxxM%20Series.pdf

Hilarious!  That's what happens when "recent college grads" write data sheets.

Wasn't it NatSemi that got the pinout of the 7905 wrong in one of their data books?  Our assemblers had to put it into my board cross-legged.  It think it was also NatSemi who published the fix for a 78L05 problem in the 79L05 data sheet.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
