    TomKraut got a reaction from GeekDoc in LaunchPad Experimenter's Board   
    Higher speed is one thing. But what I really like about the FTDI ICs are the Windows drivers. They have an API which allows you to detect which one of the 30+ virtual COM ports on your system is the one you're looking for, among other things. Makes throwing together a quick'n dirty GUI with C# so much easier...

    Poorly written sample code - or none at all.

    My mistake... I should have said openwrt, but I keep using the term uClinux whenever I think about Linux on routers, even though there is no more uClinux, since they integrated MMU-less support into the mainline kernel.
     
    Now, back to topic!

    (side track: uC? What on Earth could possibly make you want to run uClinux on something that can run the proper one?)

    I'm learning some new skills at my new job and I thought I'd share what I can with you.
     
    This morning, I found these three documents that I think you all should read. They are all written by Martin Cagan of the Silicon Valley Product Group:

    1. How To Write a Good PRD
    2. Behind Every Great Product
    3. The Top 12 Product Management Mistakes
    I recommend downloading a copy for yourself just in case they disappear.
     
    They are pure gold if your livelihood is developing new products.
     
    Hopefully, your company's management team is open to these best practices.
     
    Sorry if this looks like spam. It ain't. Sometimes you find articles that are just so valuable that you have to share them with everyone.

    TomKraut got a reaction from ike in Adding Ethernet (Suggestions wanted)   
    When you need Ethernet on a MCU, it might be a good idea to use a MCU with Ethernet capabilities... like the Stellaris 6000 series. They are not much more expensive than a big VL MSP430 and an enc28j60, and you have everything in a single chip, as well as many, many example applications including tcp/ip stacks.

    Do you have a 1nF cap between GND and Reset? We had a similar problem with one of our first MSP430 designs. Adding the capacitor solved it.
