Wiki Getting Started Guide

Welcome to the Analog Devices Wiki. This guide is intended to provide you with the basic information you need to get started using the Wiki. Each topic also includes a brief video tutorial.

A wiki is a hypertext publication collaboratively edited and managed by its own audience directly using a web browser, and this is no different. Wikis are enabled by wiki software, otherwise known as wiki engines. The “engine” that we us is Dokuwiki. A wiki engine, being a form of a content management system, differs from other web-based systems such as blog software, in that the content is created without any defined owner or leader, and wikis have little inherent structure, allowing structure to emerge according to the needs of the users. Dokuwiki allow content to be written using a simplified markup language. We permit control over different functions (levels of access); for example, editing rights may permit changing, adding, or removing material.

For those unfamiliar with wikis, please watch this Interview with Ward Cunningham, inventor of the wiki, where he talks about why he developed things, and early use cases.

For the Analog Devices Wiki - this is the place for informal documentation. Things that are formal documents - e.g. : legal documents, tables of specifications backed by product warrantees, pricing, availability, terms of use, etc - do not belong on the wiki. The wiki is a place for documentation/guides about non-semiconductor products (Software, HDL, Evaluation boards, Prototyping platforms, Education platforms, labs, activities), etc.
