Mixed-signal SoCs were successful at previous process technology nodes despite the persistence of three myths around the economics of analog block implementation in advanced process technologies.
ADC Basics (Part 4): Using delta-sigma ADCs in your design
Articles 11/29/2012 1 comment
We investigate the position of the delta-sigma converter in the signal chain circuit, the overall operation of the delta-sigma converter, the delta-sigma noise shaping phenomena, and the utilization of process gain within the delta-sigma converter.
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.
Infineon MOSFETs have been embedded into PC boards by Schweizer Electronic AG
You now need to adjust component values to achieve some system goal, such as predefined frequency response or time behaviour, and there’s no closed method for working out those values.
As a member of the electronics design community, I am angry and disappointed with the recent deaths of 346 people due to the Boeing MAX 8 design
The theoretical advantages of GaN-based power transistors are now being realized in mainstream system designs. Power supplies for data centers and telecom switching racks are two application areas where GaN transistors show significant improvement in comparison to systems using best-in-class Silicon-based Superjunction devices.
