Tales from the Cube: A Dark Story

Tales from the Cube: A Dark Story - RF CafeThis intriguing story of troubleshooting prowess - and luck - will appeal to people like me who were around in the electronics industry in the 1970s and 1980s when CMOS logic was just coming onto the scene. Everyone loved the low power aspect of CMOS and rushed head-long into implementation, then had to put a lot of time into modifying circuits to rectify issues. A new set of design rules were required. I won't spoil the solution, but will say after you read this installment of Tales from the Cube, you will likely recall from decades ago at least one similar "ah-ha" moment in the lab.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
