The “down to earth” world of analog components and functions is a reality-based counterweight to the relentless. overhyped views of the direction and impact of technology advances.
11 things you need to know about resistors in pulse load applications
Annika Elsen

A three-part series of articles explains how to minimize interference through proper PCB design and layout.
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

Monitoring the heart rate or blood pressure in order to enhance the quality of their life, this is known as Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM)
Wishful Thinking

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  
4/12/2019   Post a comment
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.

GaN enhancement for 48V DC/DC power conversion in servers and automotive
Steve Taranovich

How can you accurately measure this impedance to give reliable lead-off detection in ECGs?
Fast switching transitions can yield some disadvantages. Interference in the frequency range of the switching transitions between approximately 20 MHz and 200 MHz increases dramatically.
The U-channel format consists of an open frame PSU mounted into a U-shaped aluminum chassis.
The primary difference between the speakers I designed and the micro- and mini-speakers that Eminence makes is that the diaphragm is connected directly to the voice coil as opposed to an Aluminum or cardboard 'former' to which the voice coil was connected
