Fully-Differential Amplifiers and the Leading Edge in Electronics
Dennis Feucht 9/7/2018 2 comments
Semiconductor companies have now had fully-differential amplifiers in their product lines for a few years, though these amplifiers have been in leading-edge electronics for decades. These diff-amps are differential not only at their input but also at their output, doubling output range.

This is a throw-together project using junk box parts that can be useful whenever an interesting-looking waveform is needed for a demonstration or for the beginnings of a video test generator or curve tracer.

In an era of collapsing economies, waning affluence, and too much garbage amid scarcity, a characteristic that is part of the engineering character - resourcefulness - is due to come back in vogue, as we are challenged to optimize the use of limited resources.
The Shape of Electronics Expertise
Dennis Feucht 9/11/2017 2 comments
As we progress in our acquisition of electronics skills, we occasionally reflect on the “shape” that our knowledge and skills are taking. This article is an overview of basic decisions that “sculpt” our know-how and some of the consequences of the shape of it.
There are many important companies operating in the electronics field that are massively investing in GaN technology
The EMP is no more damaging than to the power grid than a lightning strike.
Let’s take a look at some recent achievements in related mmW RADAR IC developments
Continuing the chat from last time, we turn now to a circuit-related topic, that of current waveforms. The typical converter input waveform is shown with a static (dc) component and a ripple (ac) component
Is it possible to design a complete RTD module with overvoltage protection?
