Answer to guess what #1 of a series / (EDA Graffiti)
The image is a hard disk drive with only 5 MB of storage (we get 16 GB + nowadays in our USB memory sticks—that’s 3,200 of these 1956 hard drives!) The good news was that it replaced punch cards1---remember them? Prior to this magnetic computer storage had consisted of core memory, tape, and drums....
Blog Post: Fully Charged: Less is Not More / (TI E2E Community)
For most of my career developing portable equipment, I've been taught that "less is more." The fewer integrated circuit (IC) devices on a PC board, the better. We've been on a quest for smaller, lighter and cheaper since the first portable computers and mobile phones showed up 20 - 30 years ago. Much...

As tablets and smart phones become more ubiquitous in the corporate and M2M business world, connecting to older technologies – especially serial ports -- has become a bit more complicated. This article will describe the ways in which embedded AP modules can solve the problem by creating small, self-sustaining Wi-Fi network around your equipment. This doesn’t change the way the your existing devices are used, it just makes them easily accessible to tablets and phones.
Steady improvements in wireless technology are allowing more and more devices to establish wireless connectivity with the same reliability that has already been achieved with cable communications. Better still, it is becoming possible to make these kinds of connections in increasingly difficult environments and with legacy equipment. This article will describe some of the techniques you can use to make those connections seamless.
If you’re not designing Wi-Fi (802.11) into your systems already, you’ll be doing so very soon. Wi-Fi is rapidly establishing itself as the standard wireless connection for industrial devices.
