Will You Please Be My Heat Sink? Bill Schweber
Any heat sink must undergo an evaluation to consider both the directional flow of the heat it expels (if a temperature differential is sufficient) and other sources that may be using the same cooling zone to expel excess heat. Let’s examine the reason why.

Introducing an MCU Guy to FPGA: Part 4 Mouser Staff
Recently, I was given a project that required transition from MCU to FPGA development. In this four-part blog series, I examine how I translated my existing knowledge and experience with MCUs into FPGA development. In Part 4, I delve into the bridges that compose the FPGA fabric.

Using Logic to Understand Programmable Logic Devices Paul Golata
Like human minds, computing devices require logic to process information. Programmable logic devices (PLDs) follow a specific set of instructions to control, compute, store, manage, and manipulate electronic information. Several categories of PLDs exist, providing design flexibility.

A Combo for Innovation: Open Source and Crowdfunding Bruce Byfield
In the last few years, open source and crowdfunding have become a joint force multiplier, leading to new product innovations and a deeper expansion of open source into business.

Which Hardware in the Loop (HITL) Scenario Works for You? Bill Schweber
Hardware in the Loop (HITL) is the only practical way to test complex system hardware and software, and two ways of implementing it exist. Each approach has pros and cons, but in either case, developing the HITL installation can be a task as large as developing the system itself.

Introducing an MCU Guy to FPGA: Part 3 Mouser Staff
Recently I was given a project that required me to transition from MCU to FPGA development. In this four-part blog series, I examine how I translated my existing knowledge and experience with MCUs into FPGA development. In Part 2, I explored example code and discovered additional useful resources. Now in Part 3, I learned about OpenCV and simple data transferring from the FPGA to the MCU.

Introducing an MCU Guy to FPGA: Part 2 Mouser Staff
Recently I was given a project that would require me to transition from MCU to FPGA development. In this four-part blog series, I examine how I translated my existing knowledge and experiencing with MCUs into FPGA development. In Part 1, I examined some advantages and disadvantages of FPGAs, introduced the Terasic DE10 Nano development kit, and explored a few key FPGA planning considerations. Now in Part 2, I explore example code and discover additional useful resources.

Introducing an MCU Guy To FPGA: Part 1 Mouser Staff
Recently I was given a project that would require me to make the transition from MCU to FPGA development, which requires a move into the bigger and more capable ARM cortex outside of the safety and ease of the mBed environment. In this four-part blog series, I’ll examine how to translate my existing knowledge and experiencing with MCUs into FPGA development. In Part 1, we’ll begin with some advantages and disadvantages of FPGAs, introduce you to the Terasic DE10 Nano development kit, and look at a few key FPGA planning considerations.

Exactly What the Doctor Ordered: Cars that Monitor Their Health and Yours Paul Golata
One of the trends in cars is AI, enabling autonomous driving, such that vehicles can stop in emergency situations before colliding and also to arrive at their destinations with less risk and peril for all. To enable this reality, each system must be equipped with control, monitoring and sensing. 

Arduino 101: Pattern Matching on the Intel® Quark™ SE Microcontroller Lynnette Reese
Machines have never been as good as the human brain for sensing, perceiving, thinking about, or interpreting visual images. The human brain is also quite effective at “filling in the blanks” by making assumptions about the world around it. In some circumstances, the brain falls prey to a phenomenon referred to as an “optical illusion” in the common vernacular.
