Diff-Amp Uses a Resistor Network
Dennis Feucht 4/14/2016 3 comments
Low-cost integrated resistor networks can be used to implement a low-parts-count two-op-amp differential amplifier with low common-mode gain. Integrated onto a common substrate and processed together, resistors of integrated networks match well and are an alternative solution to discrete resistors, especially for amplifiers with a wide common-mode input voltage range.
The Benson High-School Electronics Class Rose Festival Prank

Every year, a big festival is held in Portland, Oregon - the Silicon Forest - that is not quite as famous as the Pasadena Rose Parade, though its parade was carried on network television in the 1960s, when I was in high-school. In the mid-‘60s, Benson Polytechnic High School was rated nationally as number two behind the Bronx School of Science in New York
The triboelectric effect is defined as a small amount of static electricity generated by the contact and movement of surfaces, used to generate energy that is collected and stored to power sensors and electronics at very low power
The utilization of electronics in medical applications could effectively enhance the quality of life of patients and prevent many cardiovascular distresses: this is confirmed by the result of an observational study, about the CPAP device
This blog series deals with the potential of the utilization of smart electronic ICs in medical care applications; these ICs are produced by companies in the field of semiconductors such as STMicroelectronics which has a broad portfolio of ICs for medical applications
There is rising interest in alternative energy schemes and electric vehicles (EVs) which means there is a growing need in making it possible for power to flow efficiently in both directions.
The industries sector is progressively increasing utilization of IoT technology to make the industrial processes automated in a very intelligent way.
