Jeremy Smith is a 45-year-old who graduated from Bristol University, UK, in the days when, he says, "We had to make our own 0s and 1s." He has worked in various electronics development roles in companies such as PIPS Technology in Southampton and Solid State Logic in Oxford. He has developed a wide range of embedded systems hardware, specializing in programmable logic development, working in areas such as fault-tolerant and fail-safe logic design, image processing, and high-speed serial interfaces. Jeremy is currently developing video processing functions in programmable logic for use in visual aids for visually disabled people, where the requirements are for affordable, easy-to-use, handheld devices that provide functions such as contrast enhancement, false color, and magnification, with the ability to display images on standard televisions.
He also does a large amount of road bike racing and has for reasons best known to himself a backside which has appeared on national television and in national newspapers.
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.
