There is so much amazingly cool "stuff" to see and do that I'm amazed I find the time to get any real work done. In my blog I will waffle on about the books I'm reading, the projects I'm building, and the weird and wonderful websites I blunder across. Please Email Me if you see anything you think will "tickle my fancy."

There are quite a lot of diverse aspects to consider with regard to a project like my Bodacious Acoustic Diagnostic Astoundingly Superior Spectromatic (BADASS) display. In my previous blog on this topic, I showed a pencil sketch illustrating my first-pass thoughts for the front panel of the displa......

One thing I noticed as I meandered my way around the EE Live! 2014 exhibition floor was the fact that there were flashing LED displays all over the place. In particular, EETimes Community Editor Caleb Craft had created a very tasty "Applause-O-Meter" display for us to judge the winner in......

On my way back from the the EE Live! 2014 conference and exhibition, whilst waiting for my plane at San Jose International Airport, I was ambling around seeing what there was to be seen when I passed one of those "Cool Electronic" booth-type stores that tempt you with products you didn......

Recently, there have been announcements about astoundingly cunning PCB layout technology. Two proclamations in particular spring to mind: New Cadence TimingVision Technology Speeds PCB Interface Design and Mentor's Xpedition: Putting More Power Into Your Mouse. ? When I was being briefe......

Several days ago, the cyberworld was embarassed to unravel a major memory-handling bug in the Heartbeat extension of the Transport Layer Security protocol used in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library. The Heartbeat extension allows a client to tell a server that it's still connec......

I am amazed at how things are racing along with regard to my Pedagogical and Phantasmagorical Inamorata Prognostication Engine. Now, before we leap into the fray, let's first make sure we're all tap-dancing to the same drum beat: Pedagogical ?=? Educational Phantasma......

A couple of months ago, I noted how Mentor's Valor links ERP/MRP with the shop floor. It facilitates a lean new product introduction (NPI) flow. It starts by ensuring that the design can actually be manufactured, assembled, and tested. If there are any issues, these are fed back to the front-e......

I truly wish I were an expert with a 3D mechanical CAD package. A few months ago, I was all gung-ho about learning DesignSpark Mechanical. I downloaded the free software to my computer, but I never seem to find the time to learn how to use it. Fortunately for me, I have a friend, Eugene (Willie)......

Well, as usual, things are racing along in the programmable logic space (where no one can hear you scream). Around the middle of 2013, Altera detailed its roadmap for the 20 nm and 14 nm technology nodes. Arria 10 FPGAs and SoCs will be implemented using TSMC's 20 nm process, while Stratix 1......
