Preventing voltage fluctuations due to power supply lines
Frederik Dostal  
4/22/2019   Post a comment
In such things as laboratory power supplies or electronic systems, in which various components are connected to longer cables, the regulated voltage is not always particularly accurate at the point where it is needed due to various voltage drops across the interconnection lines.
How to Shrink Your USB Type-C Battery Charger

Wishful Thinking
Aubrey Kagan  
4/17/2019   1 comment

As we deal with the vagaries of life and work, occasionally we come up with an idea to improve the process. If the idea is big enough or the inventor has entrepreneurial leanings there may be an attempt to commercialise the product/process. Sometimes pie-in-the-sky ideas seem too small and are left in a corner of the mind, only to reappear as someone else’s brilliant idea.

Countdown to s-to-z...
The Filter Wizard Remastered

Now, our customer doesn’t want to buy big, expensive, high quality capacitors to build an active filter with this response. So, having established the principle of optimizing in the analogue domain, let’s look at whether need to make any changes in order to use it to create a digital filter – which we’ll be able to implement on the Cypress PSoC 3
An Excelent fit, Sir!

This is the first of two columns showing a simple technique for designing, optimizing and implementing a response-equalizing filter. The second part will look at implementing it on a device such as PSoC3; this part is about the design process.

Nothing New in Power Integrity?
Raj Nair  
3/29/2019   Post a comment
The most common approach to PI management, particularly for droops and other dynamic supply differential variations, is the addition of on-chip decoupling capacitance. Capacitance, local to a load circuit that draws transient supply current, can help fulfill transient charge demand.

In some articles on driving sampling ADCs, you see the settling behaviour at the inputs being tweaked with resistors and capacitors. It’s good to see the subject raised, but the treatment always seems rather empirical to me, and doesn’t explain where all the ringing you see comes from.
