But we are going to look at serial protocols from quite a broad perspective. Whats the difference between RS232, USART, UART, Serial, USB, CAN, SPI, I2C, JTAG, and 1-Wire […]

10,000′ Serial Communication

Eigenwho? I never understood Eigenvectors. They were a piece of mathematical magic my sophomore year, and would have remained so if two of my classes this quarter had not queried my understanding of them. Lets start with Linear Transforms Linear Transformations A linear transform or linear mapping simply takes in a vector, […]
