    Blog Post: 25 functions for 25 cents: systems and housekeeping
    Published. December 5, 2017

    Does your system need more nonvolatile memory? Maybe you’re looking for a low-power keypad or an external watchdog timer? This wide range of applications may seem unrelated, but they can all be realized using cost-effective MSP430™ ferroelectric random access memory (FRAM) microcontrollers (MCUs). Traditionally, designers implement functions such as electrically erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPROM) or external watchdog timers with dedicated integrated circuits (ICs) that vary significantly...

    Art of Analog Design Part 7: Mismatch Tuning
    Published. November 4, 2017

    In days of future past, we looked at DC mismatch analysis and compared it to Monte Carlo analysis for analyzing the effect of device mismatch on the offset voltage of a differential amplifier. We found that DC mismatch does provide good estimates of the effect of mismatch with the limitation that the offset voltage has a Gaussian distribution. Since DC mismatch analysis only needed a single simulation to generate an estimate, we can use it for design exploration. For example, when looking for the...

    Town Car Version Control
    Published. March 12, 2013

    The team at Fog Creek is releasing a major new version of Kiln today. Kiln is a distributed version control system. One of the biggest new features is Kiln Harmony, which lets you operate on Kiln repositories using either Git or Mercurial. So you can push changes to a Kiln repo using Git and then pull them using Mercurial. This means that you never have to decide whether you want to use Git or Mercurial. Religious war: averted. But, I’m getting ahead of myself! For those of you that have been...
