In DAC BASICS, Part 3: Static specifications, we talked about the static specifications and their impact DC characteristics, such as offset, gain, and linearity. These characteristics are generally consistent across the various topologies of the R-2R and string digital-to-analog converters (DACs). In contrast, the glitch-impulse behavior of the R-2R and ...

Just like the quotation in the movie "Apollo 132" and in real life, we design things not to fail. Your "friend" Murphy and Murphy Law 's3 (see Figure 1 below) is out there waiting for you.

After looking at the performance metrics in the online ADC simulator tool it is a great time to look at another online ADC tool called the Frequency Folding Tool. It is a useful simulator that helps to understand the effects of aliasing in an ADC. This tool can be found at this link ADI Data Converter Tools. It will take you to the page shown below.

Most of us know about the latest Rover to land on the Red planet called Mars-Curiosity. But did you know that since January 2004 NASA's Mars Rover called Opportunity has traversed the Martian landscape a distance of 26.661 miles, just a little more than the distance of a full marathon run. The Rover reached this distance on March 24, 2015 and is still ...

So, I was consulting into one of our teams that was putting together a cool data acquisition subsystem. They wanted to use (OK, I admit it, I also wanted them to use) my DIY AC line filter (as written up in Product how-to: Decimation and AC line rejection filtering - a study and an earlier Filter Wizard piece entitled Now synthesize your FIR filters ...
