In my latest quest to improve your abilities as an engineer, I have been profiling the ability to create prototype circuits at home. This blog (See Reference 5) is from a series entitled "Developing Prototype Circuits from Home." As I was developing my own prototype, I went through my storage unit to pull out some of my parts and reference boards. ...

Just as in the biblical account of the prophet Jonah in the belly of the "Great Fish", I witnessed today in the Yuma, AZ desert, Orion in the belly of a C-17 military aircraft, poised for a test of its parachutes at 35,000 feet. Watch for more details this week.

My first job out of college was testing and debugging control loading systems on flight simulators for 747 and the "new" 767 airliners. In the late 1970s, the control loop that simulated the feel of the primary flight surfaces, and had to respond instantaneously to pilot inputs, was purely analog; the digital portion consisted of a 32-bit Gould SEL ...

I think it is a real plus to have an experienced MIT professor as the agency's second-in-charge. Dava Newman seems like a good technological innovator and should bring fresh new energy and ideas to NASA. As the former Apollo Program Professor of Aeronautics at MIT in Cambridge, she has expertise in multidisciplinary research that includes aerospace ...

As a data converter supplier, we are sometimes asked, which is our lowest noise analog-to-digital converter (ADC)? While the tendency is to assume an ADC with the highest resolution would be the right answer, this is not necessarily the case. But before answering the question, we will discuss different types of noise found in ADCs.

The fact that you're reading this has sparked interest and I am sure you are wondering what this means or you have picked a position to either defend your beliefs or want a different opinion. So, let me say that this topic and what I say applies to choices of circuit blocks and or architectures for many different applications from analog to digital. ...
