Thanks for the informative article (was not familiar with this requirement, but will keep this in mind in the future).

UL 1604 is obsolete and has been superceded by ANSI/ISA 12.12.01.  The end of life date for 1604 was July 31, 2012.  That being said, this is a good overview of the requirements for either standard.  Anyone working with this type of product should also get familiar with the IEC 60079 series standards.  They define the hazardous locations (known as explosive atmospheres or ATEX) requirements for europe.  IEC60079-0 describes the basic requirements, and the others describe varios protection methods.

Thanks for the primer, Jane. We don't hear much about UL 1604, but it sounds like a rating that more engineers -- mechanical and electrical -- should be familiar with.

FPGAs are the glue logic in today's systems, but what they glue together are a variety of diverse sub-systems with different interface requirements.
What should be the perception of a product’s real-world performance with regard to the published spec sheet? While it is easy to assume that the product will operate according to spec, what variables should be considered, and is that a designer obligation or a customer responsibility? Or both?
Procurement actually means well. There is no question that procurement can do a better job of phrasing their questions or making connections between engineering’s goals and the processes underway. And if you are using the right deciphering code, the result can live up to -- or surpass -- your expectations.
Internal combustion engines are ruling power generation applications even today, and improvising them to churn out every slice of power is still an area of research for the engineering community.
If you are interested in adding FPGA technology to you engineering toolkit, grab some free tools and an evaluation kit and get started on your own FPGA project. It never hurts to expand your engineering toolbox, and FPGAs are only going to become more popular over the next few years.
