Dynamic Use of the Disable Pin on an Amplifier
Steve Taranovich 2/28/2018 2 comments
Some operational amplifiers have disable pins and when used correctly, they can yield up to 99% power savings without compromising accuracy. The disable pin is primarily used in static operation (standby mode).

Low Side RDS(on) Current Sensing
Jerry Steele 2/5/2018 Post a comment
Motor drive applications with totem pole outputs often only need to sense current in the low side switch(es) of their phase(s). Including a shunt and an amplifier is a simple and obvious solution, and is really preferred if high accuracy is the objective
The utilization of electronics in medical applications could effectively enhance the quality of life of patients and prevent many cardiovascular distresses: this is confirmed by the result of an observational study, about the CPAP device
This blog series deals with the potential of the utilization of smart electronic ICs in medical care applications; these ICs are produced by companies in the field of semiconductors such as STMicroelectronics which has a broad portfolio of ICs for medical applications
There is rising interest in alternative energy schemes and electric vehicles (EVs) which means there is a growing need in making it possible for power to flow efficiently in both directions.
The industries sector is progressively increasing utilization of IoT technology to make the industrial processes automated in a very intelligent way.
Medical care applications with electronic devices are becoming progressively more important and massively adopted.
