There is so much amazingly cool "stuff" to see and do that I'm amazed I find the time to get any real work done. In my blog I will waffle on about the books I'm reading, the projects I'm building, and the weird and wonderful websites I blunder across. Please Email Me if you see anything you think will "tickle my fancy."

I first dabbled with Arduino microcontroller development platforms last year in the form of the Rainbowduino Arduino-compatible system from Seeed Studio, which powered my 4x4x4 tri-color 3D LED cube.   Since that time, I've become a huge supporter of the Arduino, from the concept to the......

Have you seen the original Terminator movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger portraying a cyborg sent from the future to kill someone in our time? On a number of occasions during the movie, we saw the world through the cyborg's eyes, with additional information being overlaid on the scene he was......

The folks at Maxim are touting a new reference design called the Alameda -- a flexible, high-accuracy 4-channel bipolar analog output that is targeted at industrial automation applications.   Now, I fully understand the advantages of using a reference design, especially ones like the Alamed......

As you will doubtlessly notice, a lot of my current hobby projects --such as my Infinity Mirror and my BADASS Display--are based on NeoPixel rings and strips from Adafruit.com   In turn, Adafruit's NeoPixels are based on the WS2812 integrated light source from Worldsemi. This is an incr......

Several days ago, I got an email asking if I were aware of any PCB tool that supported Radial Grids. To be honest, I have never had occasion to require this capability myself, so I was blissfully unaware of what was available out there.   I emailed a bunch of folks I know at the various EDA......

When I'm driving back and forth between my home and my office, I usually tune in to the National Public Radio (NPR) . One of the topics that's been bouncing around for the last few months is that of "net neutrality" (or lack thereof).   The idea behind net neutrality is th......

My friend Sven Andersson in Sweden sent me an email several days ago. Sven is busy working on his Zynq Design From Scratch blog series. He informed me that he's already posted Part 43, in which he talks about debugging his designs using various techniques, including simulation and virtual on-c......

Nothing is simple, right?. I ran into a minor "gotcha" with regard to my Bodacious Acoustic Diagnostic Astoundingly Superior Spectromatic (BADASS) display project. As you may recall from my previous blog on this topic, I'm planning on implementing a 16 x 16 array of tri-colored LEDs ......

I just heard from my friend in Germany, Tobias Strauch. It seems he's launched an interesting crowdfunded project called Arduissimo over on Indiegogo.com.   Tobias is a big proponent of a design realization technique he calls system hyper pipelining (SHP). Other people are intereste......

I recently blogged about the worst oscilloscope manual of all time.. I've particularly enjoyed the feedback quoting from real-world manuals, such as "...the on-screen lathy rectangle shapes represent the front panel keys..." and "...turn the 'Universal' knob when holdoff......
