7 Problem Sources Power Miswired Logic or Desgin Component Failure

8 Potential Problems Soldering Wiring Power supply Grounding Connectors Shielding Heat dissipation Equipment Bad com-ponents ESD

9 Plan of Attack K.I.S.S. K.I.S.S. Work Backwards Work Backwards

10 Tools Digital Digital –Logic Analyzer –Serial Debugging Analog Analog –Oscilloscope –Volt Meter –Spectrum Analyzer

11 Prevention: Tangibles Simulations Simulations Modularity Modularity Triple safety Triple safety –Wiring colors (i.e. don’t use 2 reds for both power and ground) –Ground straps for ESD –Circuit protection

12 Prevention: Intangibles Knowledge Knowledge –Part pdfs –Schematics –Pin-outs –Block diagrams Software Software –Keep working revision backups –Frequent testing –Smoke testing/integration Planning Planning
