Small-power motor drives such as fan motors, dishwashers, circulation pumps, and major applications are constrained by challenging form-factors and lower standby current. There are a large number of customers adopting smart power module solutions that reduce the mechanical heatsink needed plus the number of screws previously needed for the discrete ...

Previous articles in Planet Analog make mention of the "aliasing effect." Most EEs agree in the importance of the aliasing effect as a noise source and take for granted that anti-aliasing filters are a key part in the signal chain path. But, what is the aliasing effect? Where does it come from? Why does oversampling followed by digital filtering and ...

One of the strategic design considerations for integration of microcomputers into measurement instruments is how to relate the electronic circuits of the instrument to the microcomputer (μC) and user interface. A general model of μC-based instruments is shown below in block diagram form:
