MOSFETs have been the chosen transistor technology in most Switched Mode Power Supplies (SMPS) since the mid 1980's. MOSFETs are used as the main switching transistor as well as to improve efficiency when used as gated rectifiers. In order to choose the best switch for power application this blog provides a comparison of P Channel and N Channel ...

For most of the summer and the month of September, I have been observing and interviewing sound guys ("engineers") and bands regarding the comparison of analog and digital sound boards. In this blog I present my findings. As with all of my blogs, I introduce a subject and encourage feedback. Many engineers play instruments or support live music in ...

Autonomous vehicles have received some bad press recently with some accidents and deaths that looked like the technology might be set back. Even some interested parties like Apple have gotten skittish about their development efforts. For example, earlier this month on September 7, Apple closed parts of its self-driving car project and laid off dozens of ...

Broadband has quickly gained popularity since its inception, and now more than 800 million people worldwide use it to connect to the internet. This growth is for good reason: broadband provides the bandwidth necessary for all the audio, video and other applications that require large amounts of data to be delivered quickly and seamlessly. With these ...

We have low-cost, high-performance sensors for so many real-world phenomena: light, sound, images, motion, pressure, heat, temperature, energy, power...the list goes on. But good sensors which replicate the versatile human or animal nose are still elusive.

As somewhat of a continuation of my last blog topic I am once again returning to measurement of an LDO parameter as I look at the power supply rejection ratio (PSRR) of this device. As I have been transitioning into this new role I have found that products going into space require much more stringent specifications and review than typical commercial ...
