Whatever your applications design(s) digital multimeter, oscilloscope, on-board charger (OBC), plug-in battery for hybrid or electric vehicles, power supply for a motor drives, etc. it needs to include overcurrent protection.
SPICE Models for Ceramic Capacitors ... (Nearly) Better Than the Real Thing?

No SPICE model can be better than the real measurements performed on electronic components, which are sometimes patiently gathered over the course of weeks and years.
Digital Temperature Sensing with the Aid of LTspice

Before you start building a digital temperature sensing circuit, you must take the pure mechanical aspects (not treated in this article) and the electro-thermal aspects of your design into account. To that end, there are several important questions to consider.
A New Trilogy of LTSpice Circuits With NTC Thermistors, PART III: A Last Burst of LTSpice Simulations for Temperature Control Circuits (LTC1040, LT8391 and more)

Although it is common knowledge that their efficiency is poor, Peltier thermoelectric elements are considered the most versatile cooling elements; they are used in a wide range of applications, such as laser diode cooling systems or portable fridge coolers, as well as automotive thermoelectric generators.

A three-part series of articles explains how to minimize interference through proper PCB design and layout.
In such things as laboratory power supplies or electronic systems, in which various components are connected to longer cables, the regulated voltage is not always particularly accurate at the point where it is needed due to various voltage drops across the interconnection lines.
There area plethora of USB Type-C articles out there, but this is the first one I have seen with a really neat design architecture to shrink the board footprint with a high level of integration.
The required selectivity of a customer design implied four-pole filters with about 10% bandwidth (passband width about 10% of the centre frequency). There was a catch---a tight power budget
Monitoring the heart rate or blood pressure in order to enhance the quality of their life, this is known as Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM)
