Analog circuits inherently have some inaccuracies; if these exceed the allowable specification, there are three general strategies to dealing with them.
Removing the vuvuzela narrow-band noise was presenting challenges to broadcast engineers
This article discusses how using a single synchronous buck controller can output the most common voltage rails, and accommodate a wide range of operating input voltages from 3V to 40V, and at a reasonable BOM cost.
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
