I think it’s fair to say that the majority of my friends in Embedded Space (where no one can hear you scream) tend to live on the microcontroller (MCU) side of the fence. To put this another way, relatively few of my chums don their “I’m an FPGA Designer” T-Shirts before heading off to work in the morning.
A few years ago as I pen … Read More → "Eeek Alors! Radiation Hardened eFPGA IP"
Industrial facilities are jam-packed with expensive machines of all shapes and sizes. If something goes pear-shaped with one of these little scamps, it can bring a production line to its metaphorical knees. Fortunately, the folks at MathWorks have the 21st century equivalent of a crystal ball that can help predict when the machines might fail.
I love the smell of … Read More → "Digital Twins Promote Predictive Maintenance"
Most people are familiar with the TNG concept, which sprang from the original Star Trek TV series being rebranded as “Star Trek: The Original Series” when its shiny successor “Star Trek: The Next Generation (TNG)” appeared on the scene (no pun intended). Well, I’ve just been introduced to the next generation (TNG) of design for test (DFT).

Yes! This is it! At long last we’ve reached the final part of this epic saga into all things related as to why switches bounce and how to mitigate against this phenomenon; that is, how to debounce the little rascals.
On the off-chance you’ve only just run across this modest magnum opus, we should perhaps commence by noting … Read More → "Ultimate Guide to Switch Debounce (Part 9)"
I just heard about a new code coverage tool from Microchip Technology that’s targeted at embedded designs, that’s quick and easy to use, and that does things no other code coverage tool has done before. Just writing that gave me a flashback to the opening spiel of Star Trek: The Original Series, where the … Read More → "Compellingly Cunning Embedded Code Coverage"
