Between Discrete & Integrated Circuits

Somewhere in time and the manufacturing space, there existed circuit devices that were more sophisticated and complex than discrete components, but not quite integrated circuits. They were called hybrids. Today's surface-mount technology draws from them.
ASICs vs. Semi-Discrete Design

Is it possible to make "one-size fits all" ASICs? Is an ASIC that's just right for your application actually a custom IC?

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
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.
