    IIR Bandpass Filters Using Cascaded Biquads
    Published. April 20, 2019

    In an earlier post [1], we implemented lowpass IIR filters using a cascade of second-order IIR filters, or biquads.  This post provides a Matlab function to do the same for Butterworth bandpass IIR filters.  Compared to conventional implementations, bandpass filters based on biquads are less sensitive to coefficient quantization [2].  This becomes important when designing......

    Safety Matters: A Sampling of Functional Safety Standards
    Published. February 27, 2018

    In my last Blog, I promised a discussion on the various functional safety standards. As someone once said about standards, the great thing about standards is “that there are so many to choose from”. IEC 61508 is what is referred to as an A level or basic standard. It is meant to be non-application specific and to be a general standard. From it are derived sector specific standards such as ISO 26262 for automotive or IEC 62061 for machinery. These sector specific standards are referred...

    Lessons Learned from Embedded Code Reviews (Including Some Surprises)
    Published. August 16, 2015

    My software team recently finished a round of code reviews for some of our motor controller code. I learned a lot from the experience, most notably why you would want to have code reviews in the first place. My background is originally from the medical device industry. In the United States, software in medical devices gets a lot of scrutiny from the Food and Drug Administration, and for good......

    UVM-ML- Managers’ Freedom of Choice
    Published. June 28, 2018

    Freedom of choice is a term we hear a lot, especially in the last 10 years. It is defined in wikipedia as “an individual's opportunity and autonomy to perform an action selected from at least two available options…”. Is having many choices always a good thing? Well, usually it is- who would not want to live in a world where s/he has options and can make choices? However, there are also downsides to having multiple options. In the TED lecture, The paradox of choice , Barry Schwartz discusses...
