In grade school, we had timed math quizzes. With a sheet full of problems and the timer set, the goal was to answer as many as possible. The key to speed is TONS of practice and, honestly, memorization – knowing the problems so well that the answer comes to mind at first glance. Similar to […]
“Do you know how FAST you were going?!?” That question strikes fear in almost all teenage drivers. The resulting ticket dashes any hope of a fun weekend. Plus, what happens when the parents find out?? No!!! Meanwhile, embedded and optical engineers may wonder the same thing. “PCIe 3.0 only gets to 8 GT/s? I need […]

New Edge Rate High Speed Connector Set Is Micro, Rugged Years ago, while hiking the Colorado River Trail in Rocky Mountain National Park with my two sons, the older one found a really nice Swiss Army Knife. By “really nice” I mean it was one of those big knives with about 15 different tools. Later […]
mmWave applications are all the rage. Why? Simply put, the 5G tidal wave is coming. Also, ADAS systems use 24 GHz for SRR applications and 77 GHz for LRR applications. Obviously, the world needs mmWave tech! Traditional mmWave technology spans the 30 – 300 GHz frequency range. Samtec defines mmWave technology as 18 – 110 […]
