Weekly Roundup, Episode 7: Watchdog Timers, Counterfeit Components and Custom Hybrid Boards

Each week, we dive in deeper into what's gone on in the tincubator through the week in 10 minutes or less. Our topics are driven by conversations we have on social media, driven by the posts we share of our day-to-day business operations.


In this episode, we're chatting about:

  • Watchdog timers - what they are, why they're useful and how they help in hardware projects

  • Talking about supply chain issues and the global shortage and how it's impacted our project timelines in 2 majors ways, including custom board redesigns and dealing with counterfeit components, which is just the absolute worst

  • Chatting about our custom hybrid PCB, stepping through the major components of the board and talking about the cool way we've set up provisioning and serialization
