Bipolar vs. CMOS: Selecting the right IC for medical designs
by Karthik Vasanth, Sandeep Oswal, and Eduardo Bartolome
Implantable, ingestible, interactive, interoperable, Internet enabled. The unique demands of medical devices, now and in the future, require the right IC process technology and packaging. Here’s a comparison between bipolar and CMOS for medical devices,along with some packaging issues to consider.
Designing embedded controllers with building blocks
by Baruch Evenor
Baruch Evenor describes a Lego-blocks approach for designing embedded controller systems destined for mid-range apps with limited memory space.

Measuring instead of speculating
Some programmers think modeling memory-mapped devices as C++ objects is too costly. With some architectures, the chances are they’re wrong.
