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.

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 ...

The Juno spacecraft now orbiting Jupiter has a suite of science instruments which will investigate the existence of a possible solid planetary core, map Jupiter's intense magnetic field, measure the amount of water and ammonia in the deep atmosphere, and observe the planet's auroras.
