"Divide and rule"
As a horizontal cable in modern SCS, a four-pair balanced cable is used mainly. It is known that for signal transmission in Ethernet and Fast Ethernet networks, only two out…

Forecast for the Development of Computer Hardware and Software for 2001
Processors The most significant event is the appearance of two 64-bit processors (Intel and AMD) with different structures. In 2001, 64-bit processors still did not affect the market for processors…

We get rid of “unnecessary” equipment

The cable system of small offices, as a rule, has only a horizontal subsystem SCS, since the office itself is usually located on one floor. Standards provide for the horizontal subsystem SCS the presence of floor cross. Horizontal cables diverge from floor crossings to workplace outlets. Recently, in almost all newly installed office networks, Fast Ethernet 100Base TX technology has been used, which places high demands on the parameters of the cable system. Continue reading

The victory of the losers, or the story of the creation of FLASH memory (part3)

We were very happy and proud; you know, young engineers with their own hands were able to make the first “flip” chip. After some discussion between Gordon and Andy, Gordon said: “Guys, you have done a good job, but we will move on towards creating a monolithic chip.” Since I did not have other urgent projects, they also entrusted me with work on this chip.

The development of a monolithic microcircuit had its own problems. Continue reading

Custom solutions for local networks of small offices
From the school bench, we are all familiar with some of the laws of nature, which are therefore called the laws that cannot be violated. However, in addition to laws,…
