Working with bit patterns By John Miner
Integrated Circuits In todays manufacturing environment, production lines are automated with robotics and sensors. Many of these low end microprocessors and/or integrated circuits are designed for specific tasks such as temperature and pressure control. This presentation will review how to store the memory buffer in a table and use a view to interpret the results.
Covered Topics 1.Using the VARBINARY data type to store the bit pattern. 2.Storing a version number just in-case the decode changes. 3.Breaking the pattern into registers and nibbles. 4.Left shifting of the bits. 5.Right shifting of the bits. 6.Combining bits from two registers. 7.Putting it all together with a view.
Using VARBINARY field I defined a table with following attributes. Serial Number as primary key. Test Time for the part. Version number of the I.C. Register to store binary data. Modified by to see who did it? Modified date to see when done.
Break into smaller parts Every 4 bytes is an integer Most I.C. consider this a register Every byte is a hex nibble Decode the hex
Review of Hexadecimal 0000 = = = = = = = = = = = A1011 = B 1100 = C1101 = D 1110 = E1111 = F
AND, OR, Shift AND – if both bits 1 then 1 else 0 OR – if both bits 0, then 0 else 1 LEFT SHIFT – multiple by 2 for each bit RIGHT SHIFT – divide by 2 for each bit
Crafting The Solution Current example has 2 registers This is 16 bits Decode into registers Decode into fields Use view to put it together
