March 8 - Day 5: The Challenges of Using NAND Flash Memory in Embedded Systems
Continuing Education Center 
3/8/2013  221 comments
Designing and using firmware to access NAND flash memory is more complicated than it sounds. In this class, we will review how the limitations of NAND flash memory can be dealt with using clever software. More precisely, we will present the details of a K-associative sector translation layer.
March 7 - Day 4: Choosing the Right Storage Media
Continuing Education Center 
3/7/2013  207 comments
There are more new types of storage media offered every year, and making the right choice for your application is becoming more complex. In this class, you will discover the strengths and weaknesses of different technologies. We will cover the basics of different storage media types, including SD, e-MMC, NAND, NOR, PCM, and USB Mass Storage devices.
March 6 - Day 3: Balancing Performance, Safety & Resource Usage in an Embedded File System
Continuing Education Center 
3/6/2013  236 comments
Engineers often have to make tradeoffs when meeting the performance, safety, and cost requirements for their projects. In this session, you will learn how to choose which file system mechanisms and features to use, depending on the importance of each of these criteria for your system.
March 5 - Day 2: Understanding How the File Allocation Table (FAT) Operates
Continuing Education Center 
3/5/2013  233 comments
The FAT file system has become the de facto standard for data exchange between systems. It is ubiquitous on USB drives, memory cards, and other portable devices because of its wide compatibility with operating systems for personal computers. In this class, we will discuss how this industry standard works and consider its strengths and limitations.

Here's a variety of views into the complex production processes at Santa's factory. Happy Holidays!
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
Thanks to 3D printing, some custom-made prosthetic limbs, and a Lego set, one lucky dog and a tortoise has learned new tricks.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
With Radio Shack on the ropes, let's take a memory trip through the highlights of Radio Shack products.
