This installment will provide an overview of the physics of failure associated with voltage bias at the gate electrode of gallium nitride (GaN) field effect transistors (FETs).
Adapters which transform old interfaces into new ones will be essential in 2017, but is the quality there?
When selecting the feedback resistor (RF) for single-ended voltage feedback and a fully differential amplifier, consideration needs to be given to the system requirements. There are trade-offs in the selection of RF, which include power dissipation, bandwidth, and stability.
For high-speed ADCs, there is a tradeoff between performance, sample rate and power. Time interleave uses multiple ADCs sampling at different times to increase the effective sample rate, while providing the performance of a slower sample rate ADC.
A passive hardware solution is often much easier to implement than one based on a sophisticated active device; when that option is removed, frustration often follows.
