With the rapid progress in power electronics and semiconductors, each power electronics application has required dedicated and specialized semiconductor switching devices from a cost and performance standpoint.
Since we’re now halfway through the series, it’s probably a good time to look at the nameplate parameter for capacitors – the capacitance itself.
When I was having a chat with one of my colleagues with whom we shared the booth at Electronica, I saw a young gentleman with a companion moving our demonstration board frantically, checking the connector cable erratically to see an animated blue shark moving in synchronous with the board.
The hybrid IC is not extinct. Hybrids can be tuned to give superior specifications, especially in drift over temperature and noise that cannot be reached with a high volume monolithic device.
In this blog we’ll take this one step further and look at driving the ADC power supplies directly from a DC/DC converter.
