  • Blog Post: Rain on this touch panel parade won’t matter  /  (TI E2E Community)

    Capacitive touch panels can be touchy, especially in the rain when a drop of water can look a lot like a fingertip and the swipe of a drying towel can drive lesser microcontrollers (MCUs) crazy. The problem can be particularly troublesome for applications like electronic locks (e-locks) or an outdoor security panel that...

  • Xilinx SoC FPGAs Ideal Fit For OVM and MDV  /  (Adam Sherer Blog)

    Processor-based FPGAs represent 40% of all the design starts today and will rise to > 50% in 2011 (Gartner, March 2009). In the same time period, the number of ASIC-based SoC starts is about an order of magnitude smaller. Sure, many of the FPGA starts use 8-bit processors and have a small amount of logic, but the high-end...

  • Windows CE Development for RISC Computers Made Easy

    Windows CE (a.k.a. Windows Embedded Compact), originally released in 1996, can be an attractive alternative to the full Windows operating system offering system designers the ability to control power, size, and cost in a new product. For example, the runtime license cost of the CE operating system alone can save as much as $150 over the license cost for standard Windows. Additionally, the componentized nature of CE is recognized as more stable and reliable than the Windows for desktop machines.
