It is imperative to understand how a device or system will respond when subjected to radiation so that its operation in the harsh, radiation-rich environment of space can be predicted.
LED controllers and switches improve Matrix Lighting

I was pleasantly surprised that the two most powerful presentations, at MSEC 2018, that will greatly benefit the MEMS industry, were from US Federal Government-funded agencies.
Digital Isolation solutions
Aubrey Kagan 11/2/2018 1 comment
Digital isolation can solve ground loop issues, cater for level shifting, separate dangerous voltages and provide surge isolation. There is a myriad of ways of achieving digital isolation depending on your application and budget. The technology used can be optical, magnetic or capacitive coupling and sometimes a combination.
These days, I often code design equations for filter circuits directly into sequences of Excel cells
The introduction of the solar boat is necessary to preserve our planet, which is mainly covered by water; the autonomous drive option is a pleasant alternative
Leading up to APEC have been a slew of new introductions by various suppliers. I wanted to highlight some of that here on Planet Analog for your information
Could a 16-bit SAR converter application reach a dynamic range of 125 dB at 600 kSPS?
My ‘gut feel’ as an Electronics Engineer tells me that the need for more adequate and intensive pilot training is a strong possibility
