Articles 12/8/2012 3 comments
To meet system requirements, engineers need to understand the noise performance of all the analog peripherals in the signal chain, including the ADC. In this part of the article series, we will talk about the effect of noise on an ADC’s output.
When designing circuits with precision analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), designers must carefully consider all sources of noise in the acquisition system, including noise injected through the power supplies.
The NASA spacecraft, Juno, is about to complete its 1.8 billion mile journey to Jupiter and go into orbit around the giant planet on July 4.
The “I” in Artificial Intelligence (AI) relies on inputs from the human beings that create it and teach it. Crawford says that Sexism, racism and other forms of discrimination are being built into the machine-learning algorithms that underlie the technology behind many “intelligent” systems that shape how we are categorized and advertised to.
There are times when technology impacts your view on life. Recently, Facebook posts hit two of my soft spots in the same day; changing tires and bailing hay.
The subject of transconductance op amps versus voltage feedback op amps has always intrigued me. Therefore, I thought it would be a good issue for the Planet Analog audience to debate.
