An Overview of Floating Point Equality

As software engineers, particularly in the test and measurement industry, the singular purpose for many of our programs is determining whether a given DUT has passed or failed. How do we do this? Well, we measure things: voltages, currents, resistances, temperatures… the list goes on and on. But the measurements themselves aren’t sufficient. We need some form limits to compare them to. Is Vout >= 3.0 V and <= 5.0 V?

The "Why" Behind Hiller Measurements: ...

Remember being asked this as a young person: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Or perhaps recently, you’ve met someone new and asked them: “What do you do for a living?” All are good questions.
