Warren Miller (a.k.a. Dr. DSP) is not a real Doctor of DSP but has extensive experience in regard to programmable devices. He was one of the inventors of the 22V10 (back when bipolar was a technology, not a disorder) while he was at Advanced Micro Devices. He also worked at MMI and Actel in programmable device product planning and applications, authoring more than 100 conference papers, application notes, magazine articles, and user manuals. Warren has also held Director and VP-level positions managing a networking engineering team at AMD and the demand creation and FAE team in distribution for Marshall and Avnet. Currently, he is an independent consultant for www.wavefrontmarketing.com, providing technical marketing for semiconductor, IP, and tools companies.
Would you class these as adages, aphorisms, axioms, dictums, epigrams, maxims, precepts, saws, truisms, or... well, what?
Here we discover how to use the XADC (Xilinx Analog-to-Digital Convertor) in the Zynq All Programmable SoC to read the chip's internal temperature and voltage parameters and output them over an RS-232 link.
When extreme thermal cycling causes circuit boards and chip packages and the silicon die in the packages to expand and contract at different rates, problems may ensue.
In part 3 of this epic tale we consider how we might use tri-state buffers, leading up to the legendary bi-directional buffer.
Digital engineers are often confused among operational amplifiers, differential amplifiers, and instrumentation amplifiers; this is exacerbated by the fact that their circuit symbols can be similar.
