I've been accepted for this small fellowship, so I now hope to increase the uptake of students that continue with software, and indeed firmware, best-practices within 2017 and beyond. The fellowship is dedicated for outreach with some £3000 available per fellow in 2017. With this I hope to setup a n...

At a recent job interview I was asked my preferred clocking approach for designing digital systems. It is the Xilinx best practice to only use the positive edge, single-edge clocking scheme, however in my discussion I expounded the use of dual-edge clocking, i.e. changing data on the positive edge o...

In this series of blog posts, I've systematically looked at the literature, physical mechanisms and the nomenclature used within Physics and Engineering for the external and internal photoelectric effect. Contrary to unprofessional and overly critical critique, the internal photoelectric effect is d...

In the previous part of this blog [LINK], we investigated the issues with the photoelectric effect with respect to solid state physics, showing that there was only three possible mechanisms and that the photoelectric effect was the only effect likely to be important with wavelengths within the visib...

I was once told that the photoelectric effect, whereby an electromagnetic photon is absorbed by a material producing the liberation of an electron from the material's valence band into the conduction band, was not important, was "irrelevant" and indeed incorrect for silicon or semiconductor image se...
