Typical circuits textbooks tell us that there are four basic feedback topologies. The impression is given (if not stated) that a given feedback circuit will conform to one of these four topologies. This is misleading. One of the tasks of feedback analysis, it would seem, is to identify to which of the four basic topologies a given feedback circuit ...

As you progress into developing a circuit from home, schematic capture is an important part of the process. However it requires a little forethought especially if you are planning to transfer the schematic to a board layout software.

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 ...
