    Blog Post: Your solution for measuring blood glucose levels just got smaller and more accurate
    Published. February 12, 2019

    According to World Health Organization statistics, the global prevalence of diabetes mellitus is approximately 155 million and is expected to increase to 300 million by the year 2025. Since there are serious health threats involved with high or low blood glucose levels in the body, precaution and monitoring are very important. So, you can imagine the need for millions of personal portable blood glucose monitors (BGMs). Modern BGMs require high levels of integration in a smaller size so that they...

    Soft Errors - Hard Facts
    Published. July 17, 2018

    I am long overdue to include a blog on the functional safety requirements for software and indeed the functional safety requirements for Verilog code however this isn’t that blog. By soft errors I mean bit flips in RAM or FF that are not caused by hard errors and therefore disappear when the power is cycled. Previously soft errors were largely ignored and reliability predictions concentrated on hard errors but when IEC 61508-2:2010 mentioned soft errors they could no longer be ignored. This...

    The Day I Joined the Space Race

    I’m back again to talk about my hobby of ham radio. Last time I wrote about the experimental antenna I recently built on my property for operating on the low (1.8 – 2.0 MHz) Amateur Radio bands. Today I’m going to go back to my early days in the hobby when I first got to know OSCAR. No, not the Grouch or Felix’s roommate, this was the acronym for the Orbiting Satellite Carrying Amateur Radio.   Hams have always been at the forefront of communication technology, starting...

    Industrial equipment talking on the IoT? Better get a gateway (device).
    Published. July 15, 2014

    Merely routing data from local sensors onto the Internet is not the point of the IoT. Instead, aggregating that data and rolling it up via local algorithms (remotely loaded) into “actionable intelligence” allows the gateway’s operator to interpret machine or sensor trends and make big picture system-of-system decisions.
