In Interfacing to ADCs: Power Supplies, Part 5 we looked at the switching spurs and the PSRR of an LDO and an ADC when using a DC/DC converter (switching regulator) in combination with an LDO to drive the power supply inputs of the ADC. We have seen in this blog series that this method is more efficient than using just LDOs. In this blog we'll take this ...

While at the MEMS Executive Congress in Scottsdale, Ariz., I encountered some very interesting companies and their creative ideas, which will help bring MEMS to the next level in the (I sort of hate to say it, since this term is mentioned ad nauseum) Internet of Things. Thanks to the MEMS Industry Group (MIG), we have all the key players in one place a ...

In An Approximation to the Aliasing Effect, Part 1: The Origin I revisited some basic concepts about the aliasing effect, though I did it from a more visual than theoretical perspective. This second part deals with some mitigation techniques in use today. These techniques help improve signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and effective number of bits (ENOB) of ...

Over the years, the introduction of more complex tools has enabled much more capability in the circuit simulation arena. These new tools enable exploring circuit interaction to arrive at solutions to complex issues. The combination of the complexities of the models for these sub-micron technologies and the need to come closer to the idea of first-pass ...
