- Eli helped Chris out with some Zephyr stuff recently!
- His background is in low level embedded, c, RTOS
- He got FreeRTOS running at a conference after sitting with someone who convinced him to consider an RTOS instead of just a superloop.
- RTOS book
- Traffic analogy
- Eli was a guest on The Macrofab Engineering Podcast, not too long ago and gave some great background info there as well.
- Transitioning from FreeRTOS to Zephyr
- Eli loved nordic parts
- KConfig and Device Trees
- Nordic tutorials
- Eli has a talk coming up at Altium live about his experience in engineering
- Rick Hartley
- Lee Richey
- “Being a student for the rest of your life”
- What is TZero building? A Tri Clamp based hydrometer that talks over cellular
- Had been a consultant most of his career, at least on the side
- There are companies just diong SBIR grant writing
- Eli met an investor who said, “The product sucks, but the team is great” and became their patron/investor
- Sounds like Gerry Roston, former guest of the show
- Mark Barnhart of NPC
- Jeri Ellsworth episode where she talks about silicon valley.
- Starting narrow but going horizontal
- Saving time by going cellular
- Amper is a company shipping out celluar data to monitor shop floor processes (based out of mHUB)
- Making a flexible solution
- Send all data to the cloud, to cut down on firmware
- “Wifi is free”
- Videos of tri clamps failing on YouTube
- Tzero ships the sensor to the brewers for install, so it’s a very hands-off process (no field support required)
- Glycol (used for cooling) process monitoring is another area they’re getting into
- Wendover productions video about COVID vaccine shipping
- SynBioBeta Conference
- Impossible burger
- “Everyone loves just-in-time (logistics) until things blow up”
- Working relationship with NXP
- Videos for the Freescale cup
- After the NXP and Freescale merged, found out about “Pro Support“
- They are like internal mercenaries/paratroopers, for hire out to NXP’s customers
- Eli has been writing about parts that just came out, like the LPC55S69

I also did listen to Rick Hartley seminar skills, one year ago at the altium live in Frankfurt (Germany), it was an incredible 8 hours, I really think a lot of people still dont seem to think in terms of transmission lines for signals, I did definetly need a lot of years into this business to realize that.
I think the main point for not considering the real effects of fast risetimes and high frequencies is that normally all the designs do work most of the time, so there is no real need to understand the fundamentals.
I think Eric Bogatin also does a precompliance test of an arduino board in his classes and shows that those little boards are sources of all kind of troubles like ground bounce, EMI problems and so on, which clearly shows everyone is building stuff and manufacturing it in high volumn in china, but most of that stuff simply is crap which is not well designed in the first place 🙂
