I’d like to take a little more time to look at SETs. There are a few more points that I’d like to cover on the topic before we move on to SEUs.

Ever wonder how we got to 5G? Many earlier discoveries, experiments analyses led to wireless communication, but let’s look at what helped spur wireless radio 90 to 100 years ago.
Understanding current-feedback fully differential amplifiers

There are several features of current-feedback fully differential amplifiers that set them apart from voltage feedback fully differential amplifiers. This article will detail several of these differences and how they impact circuit design
Why are there all these power domains for high speed ADCs?

To understand the proliferation of power domains and supplies, we need to take a trip along ADC history lane. Back in the days when the ADC was just that, an ADC, the sample speeds were slower—in the 10s of MHz—and the amount of digital content was small to nonexistent.

I do not believe that there is anything more powerful in our industry for mentoring prospective young ‘techies’ than a learning tool powered by MATLAB and Simulink software.

This article explains how the latest-generation SiC FETs are ideally suited to new inverter designs with lower losses than IGBTs and proven robustness against short circuits, even at high temperatures and under repetitive stress
There’s a further cool thing you can do with a spreadsheet that most SPICEs can’t. That’s to use the spreadsheet ‘solver’ functionality to adjust component values in the search for a better-fitting circuit – or even to find a set of component values for a circuit you can’t otherwise design.
Infineon MOSFETs have been embedded into PC boards by Schweizer Electronic AG
You now need to adjust component values to achieve some system goal, such as predefined frequency response or time behaviour, and there’s no closed method for working out those values.
