With all of the mergers, acquisitions, and spinoffs going on in the world, I’ve been thinking about writing an article on this subject for several years.

The first reader to guess what the image below is, with the manufacturer name and model number, will get first choice of a list of books to follow. The next five readers to do that will get their choice of the remaining books in order of who is second, third, etc.
Rarely Asked Questions—143: Burned by Low Power? When Lower Current Consumption Can Get You Into Trouble

Linear regulators are fairly simple devices and don’t have too many challenges. With that said, you can still get into trouble with them occasionally.
Freelancing and NDAs (NonDisclosure Agreements)

I have NDA’s to protect my client’s interests however at times they can be limiting to a point where they require adjustment. That’s why I read every NDA in full several times.

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.
As a member of the electronics design community, I am angry and disappointed with the recent deaths of 346 people due to the Boeing MAX 8 design
The theoretical advantages of GaN-based power transistors are now being realized in mainstream system designs. Power supplies for data centers and telecom switching racks are two application areas where GaN transistors show significant improvement in comparison to systems using best-in-class Silicon-based Superjunction devices.
