Application Note from ADI
>> Application Note AN-835, "Understanding High-Speed ADC Testing and Evaluation," defines overrange recovery as the time required for an ADC to recover to the rated accuracy after an input transient moves from 10% above positive full 

I truly like Application Notes from ADI, world-class and exceptionally produced. The same goes for the datasheets. Overranged converters and converters have been the domain of the firm as they control that sector. Overranged converter is one thing I try to avoid. I prefer to be within the range by scaling appropriately.

There are 150 engineering schools in the state of Kerala with graduates leaving India for the allure of companies elsewhere in the world. The state of Kerala wants to keep these engineers right there in this region where they have graduated and is trying to create a “Silicon Valley” in India.
For decades, electronics product innovation has been incremental in nature, relying largely on the next generation of semiconductors to deliver performance improvement. For almost 50 years Moore’s Law has delivered 2x performance (power or cost) improvement in semiconductors every 18 months, outpacing any product or system level innovation cycle that could be achieved by even the most ambitious hardware teams. What has evolved is a “sit & wait” approach, to product innovation. However it is now clear that Moore’s law is broken, and the implications are profound for hardware designers.
You’re in a small company that needs to turn a product quick. Nobody in the company has any power supply design experience yet you need to drive LEDs from a universal (US and European) wall input voltage. What do you do?
The phrase “Time of Flight” has come up quite a few times in recent weeks. I think it is important to understand what this relates to and more importantly, what it relates to in today’s latest electronics developments.
