Today's Observation on Digital Logic Hardware Engineers

Trying to trace out flip-flops, latches, demultiplexers, memory and I/O chip addressing in complex data acquisition and control systems without sufficient design documentation causes headaches for embedded software engineers. Schematics without documentation are like uncommented assembler. It's days like this that I realize why they pay me. Ah well, it keeps my brains exercised and flexible.

That's it. I'm out of here for today. I've burned enough brain cells. Got to let it all process.
