As communication technology attempts to put more information in the existing bandwidth, there’s been a dramatic rise in special applications of broadband infrastructures utilizing ultra-high-speed data converters. This article covers several applications as well as what the future may hold for consumers....More
This article explores the obstacles confronted when attempting to fully automate the routing process, and provides a background for our future, which must include a continual improvement in route quality and productivity....More
Developing a common core of open standards that include architectural frameworks, reference models, and data-abstraction blueprints—the building blocks of the IoT—will help clearly define relationships among the IoT’s vertical markets....More
This sync separator design delivers simultaneous RGB video output of available composite video, solving the problem of a lack of unused GPIO pins to provide individual horizontal (H) and vertical (V) sync signals to a VGA-interfaced computer monitor....More
Transaction-based emulation (TBE) can deliver more complete, reliable verification of multimillion or even billion-gate SoCs than traditional ICE-based techniques, and helps avoid mask re-spin when properly applied....More
For each BOM item there is a description such as:
RESISTOR, THIN FILM, 301OHM, 1/4W, 1210
My question is: Is there a standard that defines how to write such a description for various components such as resitor, capacitor, IC, diode, transistor, etc?
