Electronic engineer by training, hacker (in the old-fashioned sense) by inclination. Particularly good with embedded software and FPGAs

I'm currently an engineer at TRW Conekt, but all opinions expressed here are my own, not necessarily TRW's. And possibly not even mine if I'm playing devil's advocate!

"There is generally no reason to continue the common practice of using an XOR checksum in new designs, because it has the same software computational cost as an addition-based checksum but is only about half as effective at detecting errors." ece.cmu.edu/~koopman/thesis/maxino_ms.pdf
