[OT] Freescale English?

Started by FreeRTOS.org August 29, 2007
From the Freescale WEB documentation:

"If you find yourself needing a little more memory than what the 56F8365 has 
to offer, or simply need to interface to other devices in your system a 
parallel fashion, then the 56F8366 is the device for you. Moving to this 
144-pin LQFP package allows you to take advantage of its included external 
memory interface for these additional tasks. You will still enjoy 576 KB of 
on-chip Flash memory, pulse-width modulation (PWM) outputs, 
analog-to-digital converter (ADC) inputs and time channels, along with the 
capability of interfacing with other devices in your system."

What is right with this?   I hope their silicon designs receive more 
scrutiny than their WEB site.

[My grammar and language are bad, as readers of my WEB site keep pointing 
out to me, but I am not a huge multinational!]

I don't see your problem. For blurb it's alright, and merely points out that you can get one with an external bus. Someone should have told the copywriter that he doesn't need to go into raptures tas engineers will know about the generalities already, and to have put in about the specific capabilities like wait state generation, handshake, perhaps DRAM capability if it's got it.

"than what the 56F8365 has" - why is there a 'what' in that sentence? Sounds cockney. "in your system a parallel fashion" - seems to be a word missing there. -- Regards, Richard. + http://www.FreeRTOS.org 16 official architecture ports, 1000 downloads per week. + http://www.SafeRTOS.com Certified by T&#2013265948;V as meeting the requirements for safety related systems.

Phrasing, my boy. It's not the REAL Santa, it's a Subordinate Claus. Read it as "needing a little more memory (than what the 56F8365 has to offer)" - brackets indicating the phrase grouping. The second phrase is either missing a second "in" or has gathered a surplus "a" - either way it's clear enough to me what the device has to offer.

Interesting. My Radar did react to this (when prompted), but I triggerd more on "a parallel fashion", "is the device for you", " for these additional tasks", "You will still enjoy" [shudder..] Sounds like either english is NOT the writer's original language, of their cubicle is too close to marketing ;) -jg

But everything involving any form of electronics/computing has to have some form of 'experience', so obviously they are only worthwhile if you can also 'enjoy' the 'experience'. :-^ :-^ Very tongue in cheek for humourously challenged.

Probably written by some one with a Media Studies degree.

Anyone watch the Canadian show "How it's Made"? Marvelous show that takes you into factories and shows how things are made. The dialog appears to have been written in French/Canadian then translated and narrated word-for-word into English. All sorts of amusing little usage and technical mis- translations.

That was one of my kids' favorite shows a couple of years ago.. They would even "play 'How It's Made'"... Anyhow, the original narration did seem to be word-for-word translated to english, with the units still in metric. It seems that they then added subtitles for the US broadcast with the imperial units. Then, later, the audio was re-dubbed with imperial units, but the video was not changed back, so they had a rather amusing ".. oven at 600 degrees farenheight" with some text on the screen "That's 600 F!".. Well, I found that amusing!.. marcus hall

I forgot about all the silly units usage. Quoting any small distance measurement in one-hundredths of an inch is particularly annoying.
