O-Scope Down

Whoa, That's a Big Piece of Equipment You've Got There

by Amelia Dalton

Fresh from the land of eye diagrams, super-fast SerDes, and more board design software than you'll ever need, it's Fish Fry! This week we investigate some of the biggest themes presented at this year's DesignCon in Santa Clara, CA. Our first guest is Rohde & Schwarz CEO Scott Bausback who joins Fish Fry to help us understand the ever-evolving world of test and measurement, explain how IOT will affect the evolution of T&M, and what it's like to build a recording studio in your house. Also this week, we chat with Stephanie Jarno from HUBER+SUHNER about how today's wicked-fast SerDes speeds are changing the demands on our cables and connectors.  Read More

What other ways do you know of to fake out our sense of touch for haptic use?

I wouldn't say it's "sloppy" in the conventional sense. Anything with a finite Q - including crystals - has some slop. As far as I know, the Q of high-quality MEMS actually competes well with crystal.

Sand 9 would point to some issues that crystal has…

Interesting example of how a sloppy Q factor can actually be useful.

For those situations where the low Q factor in MEMS isn't so useful (and there are many examples of that) - Crystal is still the answer.

Do you carefully design your oscillators or go the recipe route?
