    We are experiencing troubles with|in a|the tube(s). Please help us diagnosis this issue by verifying https://dave.thehorners.com/ is responding and displaying properly for you on your device. At this time, the main host is still

    OPERATIONAL,

    https cert is NOT locked on either http(s)! disturbance in the force. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

    it should work but lock may not show green and secure; that is expected. If you can't get to secure sites, please use http://dave.thehorners.com/. If your ISP has restrictions to certain sites, consider another provider or another VPN. Life is too short and precious to be controlled and manipulated. I pray for ALL those people who are endure under censor and control; This is the Land of the Free and the Home of The Brave....the always on always connected multi-verse Internet right?! What's your locale like? I hope it's not oppressive. See here, a beautiful view from satellite(s) below. God Speed; and Good Luck.

    .

    Ppl of the Internet. Right now, dave.thehorners.com is unavailable on the *[LTE AT&T network] (outage has been persistent for a long while; last personal report to ATT with no response 11/11/2018)

    I don' t know if it is an outage or what; but please do a tracert from your device and request access to dave.thehorners.com if it doesn't route from your ISP (at this time I only KNOW that LTE ATT is affected if you find otherwise, please post proof in deepdream. I was told 24 hours; but that was days and days ago. I would be interested in the help...frustrating figuring out a routing|sensor|censor problem. I will remove this message from my site when LTE is routing again from my phone. [DOWN NETWORK QUICK ACCESS NOTES] AT&T LTE - Customer service: 1 (800) 331-0500

    If you are reading these bytes and you didn't have to hop around N+1 nodes to anon and make things confusing.....CONGRATULATIONS you're blessed to be free. Thank|Pardon|Garcias someone. It didn't happen by itself.
    and now back to the strange loop perspective of just another.

    Field Programmable Gate Arrays

    Cyclone
    My latest FPGA.

    When I first started electronic projects, I spent most of my time using the 7400 series IC chips.  After hours and hours of wiring I'd have a LED flasher or some such useless device.  Then when everything was said and done, I'd have to start all over when I began a new project.  Things got better when I began to develop using microcontrollers and custom boards, but the hardware and software were still not re-usable.

    Today, the world of electronics is changing quite rapidly.  We no longer have to wire up a series of ICs for each project.  Now we can define the circuits in software and program the design in a single chip.  Plus, the new software drafted circuits are designed in a modular fashion so they can be reused easily in new projects.


    Development Board
    My newest development board.

    Most people reading (software or hardware engineers) should have some idea of how traditional integrated chips are made.  Chip makers create large wafers of silicon but modify(dope) parts of the silicon to be negative, positive, or neither.  This in effect allows the chip designers to control the flow of electricity.  Traditionally, the chip makers would develop these silicon wafers and layer them between interconnect layers of copper, glass, and various other materials.

    Today, the advent of field programmable gate arrays is changing the way we design new hardware.  Instead of running conductive layers specific to the hardware, we create a sea of transistors that can be configured by software.  Software defined hardware allows for easy upgrades, re-usable design, and a freedom in software/hardware interfacing.

    Recently, I've been working on SoC(System on Chip) systems.  The idea behind SoC systems is to integrate many components as necessary into a single chip.  This decreases the total cost, simplifies design, and allows for easier maintenance and reuse.

    Today most of my hardware projects are written in VHDL or Verilog (I prefer VHDL).
    Software written for my hardware project are typically written in C, C++, or ASM.  Though I try to stay as high level as possible when developing software.

    Right now I'm developing a camera tracking system using the NIOS soft core.

    I'm also actively researching PCI express accelerator boards and adaptive hardware.

    Field programmable gate arrays will be an interesting technology to watch as it matures esp. if moores law continues to hold true.  I see nothing but great things from the two (sometimes)seemingly separate fields (software engineering and hardware design) merging to a more perfect union.  Makes you think of how true the principle of equivalence between software and hardware really is.
