My new design
August 27, 2011
Here is a picture of me showing off a design I threw together while visiting a customer in China. I had a customer that thought they needed a couple dollars worth op amps and another couple bucks for accurate resistors. I showed them that instead of spec-ing expensive accurate components, they could calibrate precise stable components. That is the PSoC way. The customer is both intrigued and hesitant at the same time. I think I’ll write a column about it.
They call me Chairman Dave because I have a more than slight resemblance to Chairman Mao. Whenever I am in China my hosts will insist on ordering Chairman Mao’s favorite dish. It is called hong shao rou (red braised pork) cubes of braised pork belly glazed with caramelised sugar and Shaoxing rice wine. Think of it as bacon to the 10th power on steroids.
