There are many applications for one or two transistors. These include voltage and current amplification. Described here, in part 1 of a series, is an easy to understand way of visualizing the operation of a bipolar transistor in its linear operating region.
The age of proprietary systems and protocols is over. A highly connected world requires vendors that create open interfaces to their systems and work closely together with each other.
Since last year, everybody is dreaming and talking about the Internet of Things, including myself. But that's not enough. We have reached the point where we need to go ahead and put the plans into actions.
A precision full-wave rectifier built with two difference amplifiers and two diodes offers several advantages over traditional designs.
First in a four-part series, Aubrey's blog sets the stage for talking about temperature measurement.
