- Where Does FAT Fail? - Exploring Compromises in this Ubiquitous File System Format.
As an early option for data organization, the FAT file system attained a certain ubiquity. This paper examines characteristics of the FAT file system that leave it vulnerable to corruption, and some ways vendors (including Microsoft) are trying to make it more reliable. Can reliability be achieved without sacrificing interoperability? Is the performance cost worth the benefit?

- White Paper: Overcome the Challenges of Crafting a Customized Computer
Mixing Standards for Solutions in COM Express Whether they're powering a map-sensor payload for a Global Hawk UAV or a man-pack radio system for a soldier on the move, custom computer solutions have to be small and lightweight. Oh, and while you're at it, make them ruggedized, constant in temperature, power efficient, and inexpensive.

- Differential Nonlinearity in Analog Measurements
In most applications, linearity in analog measurements is more important than absolute precision. Ideally, in an A/D converter the digital value ramps smoothly as the input increases across its entire range. The deviation from ideal operation is a function of each ADCâs particular architecture and is expressed as differential nonlinearity (DNL). Find out how DNL is determined and the effect it has on making accurate measurements in this white paper.
- Analog Signal Conditioning for Accurate Measurements
Do you need some sort of circuit between your sensor and an analog-to-digital converter? Before you make any connections, get the electrical specifications for the analog-to-digital converter (ADC) and for the sensor or sensors in your system. The explanation in this white paper will help you understand what you need and why you need it.
- Computer System Design for Critical Applications
"Industrial computer" is a widely used term that unfortunately can be quite ambiguous, often applied to computers that may outwardly appear "rugged", but have little real advantage over commercial PCs. However, there are many applications that need a computer system that is truly built to a higher standard.
- Determining an Effective Analog Sampling Rate
How often should your equipment make measurements? This question often arises when people draft plans to automatically measure a physical quantity such as temperature, pressure, acidity, liquid level, and so on. You can approach this problem in several ways, from an educated guess to a mathematical analysis of your system. The examples in this white paper use temperature measurements because people measure temperature more than any other physical characteristic.
