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!

Every now and then something new comes along that causes you to want to dig down and find out a little more information. Tearing my attention away from Caitlin Jenner for a moment, I thought I'd take a closer look at the remarkable Solar Impulse 2 an airplane powered solely by solar energy.
Some time back, I had to dig out some ancient filter design tools. I needed a special-purpose digital decimation filter for a quite high quality audio communication system.
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) doesnt 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.
