Screaming Circuits: April 2008


ESC - LeCroy

LeCroy, booth 642, had an eye catching display. They have a Nintendo Wii with Guitar Hero playing on it. That's cool on its own, but wouldn't be relevant except that they are probing the I2C with one of their GHz... Read more

ESC - No, We're Not Done Yet

Day two is going okay and keeping us pretty busy. We've talked to a lot of folks and picked out our booth space for next year. We'll be in booth 3912 in the South hall. We'll be just inside the... Read more

ESC - Day 0.128
