Blog Post: New proof-of-concept design shows health monitoring in a small form factor smart patch / (TI E2E Community)
Monitoring the basic functions of the human body can be useful to detect medical issues. Four vital signs are traditionally measured to keep track of these functions: Temperature Pulse Respiration Blood pressure In many cases, these vital signs can be monitored using a microcontroller (MCU)-based system . While medical...

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?
This handbook reviews the development of gigabit serial fabrics to enhance system optimization; the role of FPGAs to implement this technology; and how some of the latest products can be used in high-speed data acquisition, recording and SDR systems.
Static code analysis, runtime memory monitoring, unit testing, and flow analysis are all valuable techniques for finding bugs in embedded C-based software. On its own, each technique can help you find specific types of errors. Applying just one technique or applying the techniques in isolation, however, may allow bugs to slip through the cracks. The safest, most effective strategy is to apply all of these complementary techniques as part of a complete process. This establishes a bulletproof framework that helps you detect bugs that can evade specific techniques, while preventing future defects in your application. By applying a defect prevention strategy based on several quality activities, you create an environment for eliminating critical and difficult-to-detect functional problems.
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.
