Over on the main page of AllansEEPage.com I have uploaded some notes on the circuit side of diodes and transistors. If you’re taking a class on nonlinear devices, I recommend you check these out as they are short, sweet, and to the point.
When students in beginning digital circuit classes begin learning Hardware Descriptive Languages (HDLs), it’s often through a big, heavy GUI tool like Quartus. If you stick to small examples, this works fine, but in bigger tasks things can start to slow down a lot. It’s because of these slowdowns that I use Icarus Verilog instead. Continue reading →
