MOTION CONTROL: Analog Devices’ Precision Analog Microcontrollers combine precision analog functions, such as high resolution ADCs and DACs, voltage reference, temperature sensor, and a host of other peripherals, with an industry-standard microcontroller and flash memory. The ADuC7xxx ARM7TDMI® family integrates 12-, 16- and 24-bit A/D converters, 12-bit DACs with Flash, SRAM, and a host of digital peripherals designed for industrial, instrumentation, medical, communications and automotive applications. The ADuC8xx series was the first to integrate true 12-bit to 24-bit analog precision, in-circuit reprogrammable Flash/EE memory, and an on-chip 8052 core.
Kaspersky Labs indicated at its February meeting that cyber attacks are far more sophisticated than previous thought. It turns out even air-gapping (disconnecting computers from the Internet to protect against cyber intrusion) isnít a foolproof way to avoid getting hacked. And Kaspersky implied the NSA is the smartest attacker.
Are you being paid enough? Do you want a better job? According to a recent survey Manpower released just before Engineers Week, employers and engineers don't see eye-to-eye about the state of US engineers' skills and experience.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
