My signal is within the instrumentation amplifier’s specified input voltage range, but the output seems saturated. What’s happening? Is the part broken?
How to Measure an Ultracapacitor’s State of Charge & State of Health
Mike Everett 6/25/2014 13 comments
The use of electrochemical energy storage in high-reliability applications, such as those supporting the critical societal needs for reduction in carbon dioxide emissions or stabilizing the aging power grid, generally requires either real-time direct knowledge or at the very least, predicated state of the health of the energy storage device.
IMS2014 – The Preparation
Jonathan Harris 6/23/2014 5 comments
Once again I thought I'd do a series of blogs on my experiences as an applications engineer for a major semiconductor company, Analog Devices, at International Microwave Symposium (IMS).

This is the first in a series of articles that will address the quickly evolving art and science of transmitting useful amounts of power without wires.
Excel-Optimizing Resistor Ratios, Part 1
Aubrey Kagan 6/10/2014 20 comments
I have often wondered whether the practice of using a ratio of two resistors to determine a particular output is a fundamental property of electronics or a concerted effort by designers.
ADC Power Supplies: Inputs
Jonathan Harris 6/2/2014 5 comments
We’ll start by taking a look at the power supply inputs of the ADC, what we typically use to supply power to the ADC, and some of the tradeoffs of the different methods.
Recently, AEye, was demonstrating their LiDAR system at CES in Las Vegas. A man using his new $1,198 Sony camera found that his photographs were damaged after he took pictures of AEye’s LiDAR LASER scanning system
The e-car basic concept is represented by the role of the electronics technology in making the car more comfortable, safe and effectively interacting with the driver. The first characteristic, comfort, is nowadays being dramatically enhanced by the new solution known as Road Noise Control (acronym: RNC) that has been introduced by BOSE during the CES 2019 in Las Vegas
Early microcontrollers had fixed I/O. It may have been possible to connect one of several internal peripherals to the I/O pins, but those pins were restricted and there was never an option of conditioning those outputs
In the not too distant past, if you were seen holding a conversation with a household appliance, you might have run the risk of being committed.
The voltage regulator is a very important part of the power management and the placement of voltage regulator plays an important role in improving the performance.
