Google Finds DRAM Errors More Common Than Believed

RadioheadKid What about soft errors due to chip packaging? (333 comments)

I find conclusion 7 a bit presumptuous. Soft errors are also caused by alpha particles emitted by contaminants in a chip's packaging in addition to cosmic rays. You could imagine that certain DIMMs might have lower quality (i.e. more contaminated) packaging than other DIMMs.

User Interface of Major Oscilliscope Brands?

RadioheadKid Make sure you get the Physicists Scopes (281 comments)

Make sure you get the physicists scopes that measure current going in the opposite direction.

/ducks, electrical engineer vs. physicists humor..

But seriously, you can't got wrong with Tek scopes they are everywhere, a good interface to learn, but not cheap. As far as analyzers, really depends on your needs and once again budget...

I feel like the norm is Tek scopes, Agilent (HP) analyzers, counters, supplies...Not that it's the best, just what I've used and seen throughout the years.

Just find your local sales reps, they'll gladly loan you some.
