I'm checking if I can use Doxygen to create documentation for the electronic load firmware. Doxygen is an application that can generate documentation based on declarations and comments in the source code. The eLoad firmware uses an API style that should easily adapt to Doxygen's way of working. The goal of this post is to get Doxygen utilities set up in Eclipse, document a first function and generate HTM documentation.   I used this document to set up Doxygen and integrate it in Eclips ...
When we are taught about op amps, the usual starting point is a perfect op amp. That amplifier has infinite gain, infinite input resistance on the two inputs, zero output resistance, and so forth. That's done so that the focus can be on understanding the basic operation and how the feedback operates with the various common circuit configurations, without all the messy real- world details that apply to an actual physical circuit. Although real op amps can be very, very good (exceptionally so ...
I saw that this is going on through tomorrow in case anyone is interested.  I think I'll try to catch a couple of sessions tomorrow.   https://makerfaire.com/virtually-maker-faire-2020/schedule/     ...
  This is going to be a short article, because the activity is identical to Firmware Release with GitHub: Branch, Issue, Pull Request and Project support , but the other way around.   When creating a release, you merge the development code into the official master. But here,  after finishing a hot-fix, you merge the production changes (fixed code) with the ongoing project.   This time, I'll just use Git to merge the code, and GitHub to submit the pull request. Without pro ...
  So (lets simulate that) my last release created a production issue. The SCPI interpretor times out regularly, when used from one of the available PC clients. Maybe the job optimisation in the ADC task takes away free time from the UART RTOS task? It's a simulation for the purpose if this blog. This didn't (but could) really happen.     Goal: fix a bug in production code - master branch use the Eclipse Git plugin to manage the development (I try to introduce something new ...
  Scenario: Developments for current cycle are finished (by the developer. That's me) and are available in my repo's development branch. All that code has already been tested, built (by the developer. That's me). All code has been reviewed and accepted, as part of the development cycle (by the development branch owner. That's me). Release manager (hey, that's me too) now has the task to collect all development and integrate it into the release. That's the master branch.   Tools I ...
  A possible strategy for using GIT and working with branches. part 2: bug fixes on the released code     Fixing Bugs in Released Code while Development is Going On  This is a common challenge in for any project that has active development while there is a supported version out there. How do I fix bugs in my released code - and avoid that the fix is overwritten once the development of new features is complete?   In part 1 I reviewed a branch strategy for working ...
  A possible strategy for using GIT and working with branches. In this part 1: working on new developments. In part 2: bug fixes on the released code I am suggesting a GitHub process, but it translates to other platforms with pull request support, E.g.: Azure DevOps, GitLab, Bitbucket, ... The examples are using the repository of the eLoad. I am using a single repository but it works virtually the same if contributors work from their own forked repository.     Branch Str ...

What is in your mug?

Posted by dougw Top Member May 2, 2020
I generally don't use mugs for drinking and I don't actively collect them, yet I seem to have acquired a bunch of mugs that I did not buy - as you can see... They all have significant meaning for me, except the Chicago mug - my memory fails me as to how I got that one. Did element14 ever give away Chicago mugs? The computer mug is pretty geeky and the Tardis mug is pretty fancy - the Tardis disappears from the scene when a hot liquid is in the mug. I was going to call this blog "The Unsung ...
