To meet system requirements, engineers need to understand the noise performance of all the analog peripherals in the signal chain, including the ADC. In this part of the article series, we will talk about the effect of noise on an ADCís output.
I have received an invitation by ROHM to a Paddock Tour which will be held at the venue of Formula E in their Brooklyn, New York race on July 12. This is part of the eventís worldwide racing tour.
High voltage, high speed with high slew rate with low noise are not all easy parameters to achieve in a single amplifier
Todayís circuit designers usually will need to design with analog circuitry on their boards, even if the core circuitry is Processor-based or a power supply design, MEMS/sensor or such. The
A seemingly simple circuit with only two components, an op-amp and a feedback resistor, is commonly used to convert a current to a voltage. This circuit is familiar as a photodetector or impedance-meter current-sense amplifier.
Recently, I found that the area of hysteretic control offered me a change to look in a new area that simplifies control loop design to a degree
