Re: Importance of a solid power "framewoek"
That's good, solid design experience talking there, Bill. We will hope that the newer engineers have s/o (a mentor) to bring this to their attention so that they don't learn the hard way.

Importance of a solid power "framewoek"
As someone who has been "burned" (figuratively, not literally) by a marginal power subsystem and distribution net (noise, tolerance, crosstalk) and who wasted way too many hours in looking for what seemed like software problems that were really due to power inadequacies--all I can say is that setting up a rock-solid power subsystem with rails that meet the various IC specs is one of the best up-front design/debug investments you can make. It's not glamorous, but it makes for a solid foundation and you won't waste time looking for bugs in all the wrong places.
