  • @Tony Stewart This is a longshot, but I have to ask - are you the same Tony Stewart with whom I worked at Interdiscom in Winnipeg back in 1981? -Glen Chenier

  • Reduce diode losses in redundant systems with integrated power MUXes
  • Interesting blog, brought back a few memories. The author states "Effective and reliable active ORing is not as simple as it may appear and comes with a few tradeoffs." This is so true! A related blog that discusses one of the many things that can go wrong is here: http://www.edn.com/electronics-blogs/scope-junction-blogs/4429515/Bouncing-short-beats-clean-one-for-power-system-testing

  • New house brings electric woes
  • Congrats on your move, Michael. That lighthouse must have some history behind it - not everyone (even in Cape Breton) has a lighthouse in their backyard. Can you share?

  • Manchester Coded Bit Streams
  • Unlike Manchester, biphase code is invertible without destruction and has similar AC coupling properties. If only the originators of Ethernet had known that there would never have been the problem of swapped tip/ring in the twisted pairs.

  • FTC sets watch on the Internet of Things
  • I'll believe it when I see it. I still get cellphone calls from "Rachel at cardmember services" (as well as from other telemarketers) and the FTC has not been able to make them stop. My highly obscene and extremely insulting responses have managed to reduce those calls somewhat, more effectively than the FTC has been able to do. But as for IoT, just say NO. Then you will not have to worry about being tracked.

  • Black Friday: The Avro Arrow tragedy
  • Michael, was your blog inspired perhaps by the EETimes blog Mortal Motorola by Alan Patterson last week? http://www.eetimes.com/author.asp?section_id=36&doc_id=1325699 The Avro Arrow is the first thought that came to mind after I read this, and I spent some time on Wikipedia reviewing the story of the ill-fated Arrow. I was a kid at the time but I still remember my father (RCAF captain) complaining bitterly about the Arrow's demise.
