Re: Fast Transients
Scott - you're right. In that situation, your job (as the engineer) is to get the problem solved and get the job done - not to be popular. But if we wanted to be popular, we'd be on TV.

Re: Good info on Design West
Oh - just one more of a more general nature, but still good for anyone doing analog design, Hands-On Analog Basics - Beginner Knowledge and Veteran Refresher:

Good info on Design West
Paul - thanks for some good info on power supply considerations with respect to the whole project. And for some good resources to learn more (i.e., Design West). I looked at their various tracks and spotted another one that looks pretty good -Analog Interfaces for Low Power Design:

USB Connectivity
It's one thing to supply 5V for USB, but keep in mind the fifth pin on a mini-USB and micro-USB connectors. In some systems, you need to ties that pin to ground or pull it up to 5V to get your device to charge.

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.
