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.
Touchstobe has ADI dropin 12-bit ADC
Articles 12/5/2012 Post a comment
Touchstone Semiconductor has unveiled its first Analog Devices alternate source two-channel, 12-bit, 125-ksps analog-to-digital converter that can be used as a drop-in replacement for the Analog Devices AD7887.
I would like to focus on embedded systems integrated on silicon substrates. These embedded circuits get their power and signals from the outside world.
Q is a dimensionless number. It represents the ratio of the maximum energy stored to the power loss in a system at a given angular frequency, rather than the inverse (DF).
I now hope to cover the comparative advantages and disadvantages of both mechanical and electronic potentiometers.
A growing number of companies are developing products for military purposes or for space exploration. They are being helped by NASA, ESA, SpaceX, and others.
Did you ever wonder how "they" did that, especially when we can only think of doing it the new way with our advanced technologies?
