Arduino Wearables, 9781430243595 (1430243597), Apress, 2012
At a young age, I lived very close to my grandmothers and I used to visit them often. Both of my grandmothers were very skilled in textile handcrafts and, along with my mother, were firm believers that sewing is one of those basic skills that everyone should know. One grandmother was amazing at crocheting and needlepoint, and the other one was very skilled in weaving and loved quilting. I’ve been very interested in everything practical and artistic since I was young, and my grandmothers were patient enough to teach me their skills.

I would never have thought that these faded skills would come in handy years later as I became more interested in other artistic areas. It was not long after I first saw an Arduino board that I realized that there was such a thing as combining electronics and textiles. Not long afterward, I got the chance to teach others about this amazing piece of technology in a course that focused on fashion and technology.

The product of all my time spent working with and teaching with the Arduino is what you now hold in your hands. This book is a practical introduction to the wonderful world of wearables; it mixes theory with a hands-on approach.

Since you made it as far as picking up this book, you are already half way there. The biggest challenge you face starting out with electronics and programming is the fear that these things are hard to learn. If you still have your doubts, dispel them. Even if part of the learning process is tricky, I can’t think of a more fun way to learn electronics and programming than through making your own wearable project.

Rather than just explaining each step of the construction process, the projects in this book include a lot of theory behind how they actually work—so that you can build a deeper understanding of wearables. The goal is to build your skills and inspire you to develop upon the projects in this book to create new projects beyond it. Maybe in the future you will show me how it is done.

Advanced Formal Verification
Advanced Formal Verification
With increasing design complexity, verification becomes a more and
more important aspect of the design flow. Modern circuits contain up
to several million transistors. In the meantime it has been observed that
verification becomes the major bottleneck, i.e. up to 80% of the overall
design costs are due to verification. This is
