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 often get asked about the differences between various types of devices, such as ASICs, ASSPs, SoCs, and FPGAs. Is an SoC an ASIC, or vice versa, for example? What's the difference between an ASIC and an ASSP? And should a high-end FPGA be classed as a form of SoC?   There are several ......

Some time ago, I stumbled upon the most amazing hover scooter. I don't care what anyone says. I think this is really, really cool. I can so see myself cruising around our neighborhood on this. Apart from anything else, it would make my 19-year-old son and his friends so jealous that I was havi......

I plan to build a low-cost frequency generator as part of my Bodacious Acoustic Diagnostic Astoundingly Superior Spectromatic (BADASS) Display project.   I need the frequency generator to squirt known signals into my display to ensure that everything is working as I expect. The next trick, ......

I have a forthcoming trip to ESC Brazil this year so I'm doing my "Happy Dance" (and this is not something you wish to see).   Originally, I was invited to present a paper introducing FPGA technologies (devices, tools, and design flows). As I always say, the real trick is ......

I am a routine-oriented creature. The first thing I do every morning after I've plonked my bottom down in the command chair and booted my three computers is to set things up the way I like them.   In the case of my main tower computer -- the one on which I do the bulk of my work -- I ha......

I am not inclined to dispatch the butler to fetch my angry trousers, but I do feel moved to say something. More and more these days, I am noticing people wishing their lives away and/or moaning about "how hard things are" (and not in a good way).   I know it's easy to dwell in......

I am currently writing a book about punctuation and grammar as one of my "back burner" hobby projects (and there are those who say I don't know how to have a good time).   As part of this, I happen to mention in a footnote that the famous English classical scholar and poet, A.......

Jack Gassett over at the Gadget Factory never ceases to amaze. Jack is famous for creating the Papilio -- an open-source FPGA development board intended for education, hobbyists, engineers.   One key aspect to the Papilio is the fact that it supports add-on application modules called "......

All I can express is that I am flabbergasted. In fact, I would go so far to say that it's rare indeed for my flabber to be quite so gasted. I was sitting here in my office slaving away over a hot keyboard when my chum Charles Fulks unexpectedly breezed in.   Charles (he lets me call him......

In my recent blog on this topic, we discussed some of the delivery mechanisms that might be used to present us with augmented reality information. The next question, of course, is what sort of augmented reality information do we expect and/or want to be delivered?   The impression I have af......
