Many engineers want to know if ultracapacitors will ultimately replace all batteries. The answer is, no. A typical follow-up question is, "Will the ultracapacitor replace some batteries?" and here the answer is, "yes." While this may not seem like a revelation, the significance is in the manner ultracapacitors will replace some batteries.

In my last posting When Developing New Silicon IP, Is First Pass Success Possible? Part 1 , I covered several questions for reaching first pass success. In this series, to reach first pass success there are some questions you can ask yourself as a team and get answers to before you move too far along the design path and need to make painful adjustments ...

They say that power corrupts. I don't know about that; maybe I'll let you know when I actually have some. But one thing I have found in electronic system design is that the search for low power corrupts. Corrupts signals, that is. And the scary part is that the people doing the searching often don't realize it.

In the course of researching another piece, I came across a picture of a solder hand-launching an RQ-11 drone sorry, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) in an article on military connectors. The text mentioned that researchers are working on exploiting an idea from Mother Nature- flapping wings - to develop a Micro AV (MAV) that looks more like a bird, ...

One day, I expect Stanford and Harvard Business School to embrace the role of Corporate Jester along with the trendy memes of Inclusive Human Capital Management (IHCM) and Valued Enterprise Apostles (VAE). I thought the idea of a corporate jester was something I dreamed up myself, but there are books to read (The Secret Life of a Corporate Jester and ...

I'm a huge fan of Albert Einstein. As many physicists will agree his theories are the most pure expression of genius in the history of humankind. So as an engineer I'm excited that I get the opportunity to design products which use a technology dependent on two of his greatest theories. This is the case with the Global Positioning System (GPS).
