A simple introduction shows what the noise floor principles are and how technology currently relies heavily on synchronizing to a noise-free clock
The main subject of the blog is heating with firewood. Although itís not directly related to analog engineering, Iíll think youíll be able to identify with at least one engineer who fits the stereotype described within
High-performance, passive radar and sonar systems offer enhanced stealth potential, but also place major demands on the analog sensor and front end channels, as well as the digital signal-processing algorithms.
The reliance of society on electronics invokes fear in terms of what happens when an Electromagnetic Pulse, or EMP disables these electronics. This conversation came up recently.
Some ideal operational amplifier (often op-amp or opamp) configurations assume that the feedback resistors exhibit perfect matching. In practice, resistor nonidealities can affect various circuit parameters such as common mode rejection ratio (CMRR), harmonic distortion, and stability.
