    Blog Post: Modern, sleek and durable touch on metal HMIs
    Published. November 16, 2017

    Many industrial and consumer electronic product designers use metal in their designs due to its modern look and durability. However, implementing human machine interfaces (HMIs) on metal surfaces is challenging, as it requires machining and cutting a hole to accommodate a mechanical button. In addition to compromising the aesthetics of the design, mechanical buttons are also prone to failure in moist, dusty or dirty conditions. Touch through metal allows for sleek touch sensing designs that are waterproof,...

    It's a Visual World
    Published. August 22, 2017

    Here’s an experiment to try: in a quiet (but crowded) Auditorium, drop a stack of plates. Hypothesis: At the first splinters of the crash, all eyes will jerk to the source of the sound. You probably won’t get many people listening harder to find out what happened. Yes, our hearing can give us a lot of information, too—it can indicate direction, distance, magnitude, and even give some ideas about what happened (a crash of plates doesn’t sound like a dropped bowling ball). ...

    How to Maximize Your Verification Experience at DAC 2016
    Published. June 2, 2016

    Next week will mark the annual EDA gathering in Austin. For me it is my 20 th DAC … I know, compared to some I am still wet behind my ears, but that’s only because I started my career in embedded software and actual chip development. I already outlined in my Blog “ The Top Five Trends In Verification To Watch For At DAC 2016 ”. The System Development Suite is all about the connection between different engines and the verification fabric holding them together, maximizing throughput, allowing...

    Fast, Deterministic, and Portable Counting Leading Zeros
    Published. September 8, 2014

    Counting leading zeros in an integer number is a critical operation in many DSP algorithms, such as normalization of samples in sound or video processing, as well as in real-time schedulers to quickly find the highest-priority task ready-to-run. In most such algorithms, it is important that the count-leading zeros operation be fast and deterministic. For […]...

    Full System vs Sub-system Virtual Prototyping
    Published. August 6, 2009

    There is a strong movement in the industry to move to create Virtual Prototypes of systems, prior to RTL coding. These Virtual Prototypes are being used for early software development and architectural analysis. Since there are typically many blocks in a design, the development of a Virtual Prototype can be unwieldy. While you might have a goal of creating one, you may be dazed at the number of components that need to be created or acquired (multiple CPU's, DSP's, MPEG engines, multiple memory...
