Connecting the Dots

Siloti Helps Reveal the Picture

by Bryon Moyer

Dot-to-dots are a fundamental part of American kiddie culture. Maybe it’s universal; I don’t want to speak to things I know nothing about… (much). But at least here in the US, it’s a typical child’s pastime (or homework busywork to placate parents that don’t want their children wasting their time playing): a piece of paper has a few strategically-placed numbered dots. You fill in the missing information by supplying the path between the dots; the result should reveal an image that wasn’t evident at the start.  Read More

What do you think of PNI Sensors' approach to reducing GPS-reading power?

Xilinx 1, Intel 0

Posted on 02/06/16 at 1:06 PM by beercandyman

I'll just point out that TSMC 16nm is really just 20nm with a finfet. I'll also point out that the latest part from Xilinx is just a little bigger than their last part. Altera did a big change in the architecture of the Stratix 10. For example single prec…

Magnets Help the Harvest

Posted on 02/04/16 at 10:07 PM by TotallyLost

In the first case with the fan and magnets, anything that increases loading of the fan, will incur losses in the fan motor, in addition to what is coupled off.

Now assuming you really need to move the air for cooling something, then the proper engineer…

Magnets Help the Harvest

For me, standards are my work and innovation is…

All Hail the Dev Kit

Posted on 01/27/16 at 11:24 AM by
I've rarely used evaluation / development kits, even when I've bought them for a project. However I do find a great deal of benefit comes from having the design files (schematics and bills of material) for these boards, as it saves a lot of time getting …

Low Power, Wide Area

Posted on 01/26/16 at 12:47 PM by bmoyer

Ah, gotcha. Honestly, in pulling this together, if specific numbers were specified, then I used them. Some just said "sub-GHz," and were so noted.
