Norm Novotney has spent decades living deep within the trenches of product design and development--covering a wide array of applications ranging from missiles, lasers, power electronics, RF, and embedded prcoessor and programmble logic systems. Worked up from the days of GAL, PAL, and simple applications, to today's highly integrated and sophisticated SOC devices.

Duane has decided that the time is ripe to get his ZedBoard bolted onto his robot with a Linux distribution up and running. That was the ultimate plan anyway, so why wait?
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.
