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.
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
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.
