ESC Robot Attendees

We've been hanging out in Boston at the ESC show. Yesterday was a busy day with lot's to look at and lot's of folks at our booth. Some human, some not. The Freescale people, just a few booths down, brought... Read more

Loooooooow Power

It's not quite grape power, but over in the Microchip booth, the EverReady folks were handing out little digital clock demos. Nothing sounds the least bit interesting about that, except what they're really showcasing is a little Microchip step-up DC-DC... Read more

Something Free at ESC

My post title rhymes. I'm a poet and don't even know it. So, what about that free thing at ESC? And is there a catch? Of course there's a catch. There's always a catch. This is a good catch though.... Read more

Twitter, What is it Good For? Absolutely 555contest

I follow a few people on Twitter. A few people follow me on Twitter. A number of web sites have engaged their readers in debates about the usefulness of Twitter (and other social media) to engineers. In general, these debates... Read more

What's Missing?

There is something about this PCB that will likely cause trouble for anyone assembling it. The first three people to correctly identify the issue get a Screaming Circuits 1GB USB drive. I know, this day and age, 1 GB doesn't... Read more
