Noise Monitor: Simple Ideas Can Be Winners
Analog Angle  
6/27/2018   1 comment
Simple problem-solving ideas can be potential winners; todayís low-cost sensors and simple I/O interfacing make many of these ideas very feasible at low R&D and BOM cost.
The Allure and Risk of Second Sources

Second and alternate sources are both a luxury and risk for designers, so great care in listing them is mandatory.
Smart Mobility: Electronics technology applied to smart mobility with low impact to the environment, Part 12

6/26/2018   Post a comment
Solar panels are integrated into homes; their task is to convert daylight into electrical power and to store this energy in order to feed the house itself and, in the case that the energy supplied is enough to satisfy the demand of the users, to introduce this energy into the Utility power network.

The new trend for wheel transportation of people and materials is the electric solution because it has a low impact on the environment both in terms of pollution of the air, unlike the gaseous emissions of the combustion engine, and in terms of acoustic pollution, due to the low noise electric motor
Bode Plots and Compensation Networks

GaN (acronym for Gallium Nitride) material is a very promising substrate especially for 5G applications
Single Event Effects (SEEs) with High Speed ADCs: Single Event Upset (SEU)
Jonathan Harris

Technically an SET could also be considered as an SEU for a high speed ADC since it is likely that an ion strike could cause an SEU that results in a transient event that we would call an SET.

High voltage, high speed with high slew rate with low noise are not all easy parameters to achieve in a single amplifier
New tutorial tools for analog design: Op Amp and ADC Cookbooks
Steve Taranovich  
6/16/2018   Post a comment
Todayís circuit designers usually will need to design with analog circuitry on their boards, even if the core circuitry is Processor-based or a power supply design, MEMS/sensor or such. The
Seemingly Simple Circuits: Transresistance Amplifier, Part 1-- Approximating Op-Amps
Dennis Feucht  
6/16/2018   1 comment
A seemingly simple circuit with only two components, an op-amp and a feedback resistor, is commonly used to convert a current to a voltage. This circuit is familiar as a photodetector or impedance-meter current-sense amplifier.
Hysteretic Control: An old technology makes a comeback
Scott Deuty  
6/12/2018   6 comments
Recently, I found that the area of hysteretic control offered me a change to look in a new area that simplifies control loop design to a degree

Oscilloscope triggering circuits can be adapted to other applications, as precision synchronizers.
Designing with Chip Capacitors for High-Voltage Safety and Reliability
Rudy Ramos  
6/3/2018   1 comment
High-voltage Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitors (MLCCs) are great for roles such as coupling, DC blocking, snubbing, or power-supply resonators. There are barriers to miniaturization, however.
Journeying a long way from 1972 PONG
Steve Taranovich  
6/3/2018   Post a comment
Mr. Ted Dabney passed away recently, but he and his colleagues used a handful of inexpensive TV components to create the first commercial video game, Computer Space in 1971 which ultimately led to PONG.
Image Reject Mixers Demystified
Signal Chain Basics  
6/1/2018   1 comment
The need to translate frequencies up or down is a basic signal-chain need. The key component used to do this is the mixer, which essentially multiplies two signals together
