At FluxCorp, I’m on a team of chip designers responsible for creating the Flying Flux. As with any piece of circuitry, it requires a voltage supply. In the case of the Flying Flux, a lot of its circuits run off a voltage supply that comes from an on-chip voltage regulator. Both this on-chip regulator and the Flying Flux can be turned on or off via a single power-on wire. This wire is a digital signal and comes from outside our design. When it comes on-chip, it is first buffered before appearing at both the Flying Flux and the regulator. A diagram of this setup is shown below.
Take a look. What’s wrong with this picture?
