Traditional sonar and radar use an echo-based approach, and have been amazingly successful in sensing and tracking vehicles and objects under water, through the air, or even in space. The principle is simple, even if successful execution is not: send out a known signal in a given direction (a ping), and "listen" for the return. The time it takes for that ...

The reliance of society on electronics invokes fear in terms of what happens when an Electromagnetic Pulse, or EMP disables these electronics. This conversation came up recently. Along with the 75th anniversary edition of the WWII Jeep, this made for a combination that I thought would be a good debate for Planet Analog readers.

I wasn't clear on that.  I left out too much in effort to not run too long. ...

Some ideal operational amplifier (often op-amp or opamp) configurations assume that the feedback resistors exhibit perfect matching. In practice, resistor nonidealities can affect various circuit parameters such as common mode rejection ratio (CMRR), harmonic distortion, and stability.

So I have been thinking about the design environment for analog designers and the challenges that plague mixed signal design engineers in the new technology space as we design on process nodes that have significant layout dependent effects (LDE) as well as strong correlation among devices. The challenge from a design perspective is complicated. Typically ...

I've always felt there was little need for considering analog application-specific ICs (ASICs), with all the uncertainties and risk factors which I assumed they involved. Why go to all the hassle, when you can go to the web sites of dozens of reputable analog IC vendors, find a "near-perfect" combination of ICs you need, and put together a circuit that ...
