I’m an analog engineer, lucky enough to spend the last four decades hanging around really smart people. I’ve even managed to remember a few of the things they’ve told me. My goal is to write blogs that concentrate useful information into easily digested ten-minute bites. If you like what you see from me here on EDN, I hope you’ll check out more of my writings on The Signal, on TI’s E2E Community. I’ve been drawn to technology my whole life. I’ve spent more than 40 years as an analog engineer, and I spent 10 years before that dabbling in electronics. I started working for Burr-Brown in Tucson, Arizona early on in my career and have worked for Texas Instruments since the acquisition in 2001. I’ve held various roles – from designer, design manager and product definer to applications manager and business manager. Today I get to spend most of my time helping with customer applications, mentoring colleagues and writing. It’s great fun and I can’t think of a better way to close my career!

One of the more impressive presentations of a gadget at a recent Maker Fair was a floor-mounted four-hoop device with LEDs along each hoop. The hoops were circular in shape as though they were the longitude lines on a globe. When the contraption was rotated and the LEDs driven under computer-based control, a 3D display appeared. The resolution was visibly low but at inventor shows, it is more the idea that counts than its immediate refinement.
Over the next week I am asking our audience to suggest a worthy high school library anywhere in the US
The list of components that make up the iPhone 6S is similar to that of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, according to a teardown of a unit performed by engineering consultants Chipworks.
General decoupling applications require capacitors with a combination of high capacitance and low reactance (i.e., low equivalent series resistance [ESR] and equivalent series inductance [ESL]) in the circuit. The trend in digital applications for greater data throughput at higher speed is being met by lower voltage logic operating at increasing switching speeds.
Most differential field bus technologies, like CAN and RS485, specify a parameter called common-mode voltage. Common-mode voltage refers to the range of bus input voltages, with respect to the transceivers ground, within which the transceiver maintains consistent input receiver thresholds.
