Whenever I participate in a project aiming to be mass produced, I immediately know it's not a single project, but rather two projects. The first is the project to design the product itself and the second is the project that will yield the test bench for the former. That test bench needs to be thorough.
I've been doing a lot of programming lately, and have been thinking about some of the interesting discussions about programming languages that we've had here on MCC. In the process, it struck me that there is one problem associated with programming languages that is common to them all, from assembler to Java and beyond. The problem has to do with naming ...
My degree is in aerospace engineering and I work as a senior mechanical design engineer, but with the help of a few great mentors along the way I can now design, layout, and code my own electronics projects.
Continuing my series on temperature sensing for MCUs, as promised in my last blog, I will start immediately with my discussion of semiconductor sensors. From there we will branch into some discussion of software choices.
If you currently work with or are considering the ARM architecture, there's an electronic publication you might want to sign up for. Signum, a joint production of ARM and UBM Tech (MCC's parent company), is a quarterly e-mag that features articles, animations, and videos on a wide range of ARM-powered products and technologies. You can read it on the web ...

As I have mentioned here before, one of my tasks is to help define and develop the technical content for this October's ARM TechCon in Santa Clara, Calif. To that end, here's a reminder that the Call for Papers is out and the deadline is looming.
I've been continuing my exploration of TI's (now obsolete?) Stellaris Launchpad board, with particular attention to its two independent 1Msps A-to-D converters. Along the way I've written two simple programs for my PC that have proven useful in this effort. I thought I'd share them here.
One of the most underutilized resources in the Microcontroller Central community is the Reader Message Board section. Here is an idea for how we can change that situation, and provide ourselves with a place to have on-going discussions on popular topics.
