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.

Sandler has over 30 years of experience in the design and analysis of power conversion equipment for military and space applications.
When analog engineers get together, the discussion always turns technical with a touch of fun. Laptops open up, schematics are surveyed and discussed, good hearty laughter abounds, and fond reminiscing of analog icons no longer with us brings out old stories and some good memories.
It might seem counterintuitive that an active device solution consumes less power than a passive device. Every design engineer knows that a passive crystal resonator (XTAL) doesnít draw power, so why use an oscillator in place of an XTAL in a power sensitive application? The answer becomes clear when total system power is considered.
Google is enhancing the IoT with a technology for companies to communicate with customers. The concept: You are in a shopping mall or on a local street and there are hordes of small Bluetooth radios broadcasting marketing messages to all the Android phones in the area (8 of 10 smartphones are Android).
On July 7, Chuck Murray, Senior Technical Editor for Design News and myself, Steve Taranovich, Editor-in-chief, Planet Analog visited the behind-the-scenes operations of the Orion program at NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston. Orion, a new spacecraft that will carry man into a new era of space exploration.
