Glitch-impulse behavior of the R-2R and string DACs
Just like the quotation in the movie “Apollo 13” and in real life, we design things not to fail.
With Android continuing to make inroads across the board (64% market share in tablets and 53% in smartphones as of Q1 2015), it's time to take a look at some cool Android apps for analog EEs.
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.
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.
