    Sensors Expo - Trip Report & My Best Video Yet!
    Published. August 3, 2018

    This was my first time at Sensors Expo and my second time in Silicon Valley and I must say I had a great time.   Before I share with you what I find to be, by far, my best 'highlights' video yet for a conference/trade show, let me try to entertain you with a few anecdotes from this trip.  If you are not interested by my stories or maybe don't have the......

    Peak detection of a time series
    Published. September 18, 2015

    I’ve been doing embedded work for so long now that it’s rare that I come across a need that I haven’t run into before. Well, it happened the other day, so I thought I’d share it with you. Here’s the situation. I have a transducer whose role is to determine a binary condition (essentially X […]...

    If Memory Serves: IoT Growth Opens the Door for OTP NVM
    Published. February 21, 2018

    By 2020 more than 50 billion devices will be connected to the internet ― according to Cisco’s latest forecast. Smartphone traffic will exceed PC traffic and broadband speeds will nearly double by 2021. And by the next Winter Olympics (Beijing 2022), 1 trillion networked sensors could be embedded in the world around us. While tech […]...

    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
    Published. May 3, 2018

    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...

    Dual ultrasonic sensors combine for 2D echolocation
    Published. July 13, 2018

    Ultrasonic sensors are great tools for measuring linear distance or object presence. As shown in this experiment by “lingib,” two sensors can also be combined to determine not just linear distance to a sensor, but its position in an X/Y plane. For his experiment, he hooked two of these units up to an Arduino Uno at […]...

    Build me a big data analysis room

    This was the request that showed up on our doorstep. A room. Not a system. But a room. Visions of the Star Trek NG bridge came to mind. Then the old SGI power wall … 7 meters wide by 2 meters high, driven by an awesomely powerful Onyx system (now underpowered compared to a good […]...

    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.
