The Engineer’s Guide to Fashion

A couple months back, I went shopping (Yes, Pods, I shop). I have been the humiliating target of "lack of common sense" exclusively on clothing since I was 18. Believing a black dress that fits every situation is the solution of this problem, so I went on a mission ----- shopping.

 

I ended up spending $60 on a dress, even though the material and back end processing cost is around $20 based on my deliberate and logical calculation. Before you start thinking this is a petty chick post, let me say that I do, also believe fashion is commerce masquerading as hip. The fact that fashion goes out of fashion is pure insanity. I spent this money as an ultimate salvation for a fashion dummy. It is a flexible dress that allows me to twist it into >10 styles with the same bill of material any time I want.

 

 

 

Now, did you get the head fake of this post? PSoC has been known for its configurable and reusable digital and analog peripherals: each of the analog blocks is an Op-Amp circuit with a programmable resistor or switched capacitor feedback network (R = 1/fC) that allows the creation of complex analog signal flows. By simple placing user modules or components, the same analog block can be twisted into >10 functions: ADC, DAC, CPM, Op-Amp, filter, mixer, multiplying DAC, DTMF Dialer, modulators, etc. at various resolutions and speeds.

 

Wonders like "We used 12 out of the 4 PSoC blocks" is happening everyday as design salvations.

 

So…"The Engineer’s Guide to Fashion"might be one of the world’s shortest books, but we enjoy the oxymoron, and our guide to fashion is simple and to the point:

 

 

We worship something smart, pleasant, flexible, and practical, just like PSoC.
