The world has been told that LEDs are the future, in part because they are economically the right form of long-term lighting and there are environmental benefits as a great aside. Well, maybe the environmental argument is true, but the economical one is not.
Electronic systems can really improve the quality level of our lives. This is the basic idea behind the effort of many big companies in the microelectronics sector in creating smart solutions for a better life.
LEDs are replacing legacy street lighting technologies but demand protection to ensure ROI.
We begin this series of blogs by taking a look at ADIsimADC, which is a quite relevant design tool for Jonathan Harris, an applications engineer in ADI's high-speed ADC group.
The power stage of switching converters can be modeled essentially as a PWM-switch. A switch seems to be far from the kind of circuit element that can be linearized, but it can be. This Part 2 develops a linear model of the PWM-switch
