@Rcurl: I'd be curious to see a list of the ten most commented Programmable Logic columns.  Got a way to do that?

Hi Rick, I'm not sure how to do this for trhe whole of 2016 (although I'll look into it), but if you scroll down the page on the right-hand side of the Programmable Logic Designline you can see the current "Top 10" of the most commented columns on the site:



As you can see, apart from number 10 ("Could Engineers..."), the other nine are penned by yours truly, with a little help from my friends of course; for example, the "Replacing Tantalum Capacitors..." one was based on your email to me.

@Alvie: Number 3 seems to be an outlier? Wondering why it made it to the top...

I agree -- it does seem a bit strange -- but the thing is that since I'm the editor of the Programmable Logic Designline, any articles I post are automatically associated with thsi design line -- ad it just so happens that this article attracted a lot of attention -- it's a funny old world when you come to think about it...

Number 3 seems to be an outlier? Wondering why it made it to the top. Perhaps people thought newest phones would include user-progammable FPGA or similar. Unfortunately, our FPGA tech is not yet ready for mobile. One day, perhaps. Power consumption is still a blocker, as well as die cost. Alvie
