When Is A Dinosaur An Elephant?

by Amelia Dalton

I pounded the padded carpet this week at the Embedded Systems Conference in San Jose where I witnessed the wonder that is Woz, interviewed new FPGA prototyping start-up BEECube, and pondered why exactly Green Hills employed a dinosaur as their main event this year. I also picked up some righteous swag!

Hi Loh,
It looks like you might have reversed R1 and R2 from what we meant. Just to clarify, R1 is 500 ohms, R2 is 1000 ohms. R2 is the feedback resistor.

Had some confusion about what was R1 & R2
Gain(dB) = 4.7712 dB
Gain = 3
Beta = 0.333

Hi Loh,

The problem is the "fpgajournal.com" in the path. It should have been automatically replaced with "eejournal.com".

Can you tell us how/where you got that path to the page? We may have missed something in our conversion.

I came across those pages by typing "EE journal fishfry" on Google.

http://www.fpgajournal.com/archives/fish-fry... is the first result.

Open Power Foundation Aims to Make PowerPC More Plentiful

by Jim Turley

Once upon a time, there were many little RISC processors frolicking in the deep green microprocessor forest. There was the jaunty little ARM. The bright little SPARC. The mighty little MIPS. The aristocratic little PowerPC. And so many others. They all played and laughed and had ever such a good time.

Then, one by one, the happy little RISC processors started disappearing. Were they gobbled up by the big, bad CISC processor that lurked in the woods? Did they cross over the Wheatstone Bridge and into another land? Or did they just get lost in the tall grass, wandering aimlessly until their mommies and daddies forgot about them? ...
