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.

I was writing a series about lightning, thunderstorms early warning and tracking systems and lightning protection when this came to my mind, my current occupation has implied one of the most drastic changes of subject in my career. Most of my previous occupations involved working with nearly harmless and relatively predictable low level voltages and ...
