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.

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.
