    First WiFi-AC Adapter criticized for NOT having USB 3.0
    Published. November 29, 2012

    I incorrectly reported the first WiFi routers with USB 3.0 ports support WiFi-AC or 802.11ac in a previous blog.  In fact, those routers use WiFi-N will MIMO or multiple antennas and dual radios.  They still make use of USB 3.0 because the WiFi-N speeds with dual radios can achieve 450 Mbps which far exceeds maximum effective throughput of [...]...

    Blog Post: How have current-limited power switches helped you in your designs?
    Published. November 27, 2012

    Written by: Cornel Pazara, Product Marketing Engineer With the advent of new handset and tablet devices in smaller and smaller footprints, engineers are facing the arduous task of designing systems that fit into these smaller form factors. Also, consumers are placing more value on the battery life of their portable devices by seeking longer operation time between charges. One of the standards that has become a “must have” for these devices is the USB port that enables a user to connect...

    Optimizing ARM Based Designs for Low Power using Emulation
    Published. November 19, 2012

    The month November goes to the Brits, no question. Not only did the James Bond movie Skyfall open, but Santa Clara also experienced somewhat of a "British Invasion" for ARM TechCon in the Santa Clara convention center. To be there properly I even brought out my favorite new pin striped suit ;). With that being at the cleaners now that ARM TechCon is over, I am reflecting on what I heard. In my mind ARM TechCon's focus was all about low-power -- at all levels of abstraction. Various...

    Creating Custom File Systems and the Linux Loop Device
    Published. November 5, 2012

    A few weeks ago we had a crisis at our house. My son managed to delete the data from my daughter's USB memory stick. Not only did he delete it, but he did it in such a strange way I have no idea what he could have done. She was not too happy since all of her recent school work was on the memory stick. My best guess is that he deleted it by mistake, recognized what he had done, went into the recycle bin, but instead of restoring the files, tried to manually copy the files back to the stick...

    You need three things from a solid-state disk (SSD): speed, capacity, and reliability. You need three things from a portable SSD: speed, capacity, reliability, and diminutive size. And you can’t get much smaller than packing an SSD into the form factor of a USB memory stick. That’s exactly what LaCie has done with its FastKey drive. It’s packed a 30 to 120Gbyte USB 3.0 SSD into the form factor of a slightly oversized USB memory stick but the LaCie FastKey doesn’t perform like a memory stick....
