ADCs for high dynamic range – successive-approximation or sigma-delta? September 01, 2014 ADCs for high dynamic range – successive-approximation or sigma-delta? Maithil Pachchigar, an applications engineer with Analog Devices Inc., looks at trade-offs that must be considered when choosing between two different types of ADC. Read more How to kill an ultracapacitor August 25, 2014 How to kill an ultracapacitor Mike Everett, CTO at Maxwell Technologies, gives an overview of how to cause an ultracapacitor to fail and assesses it to be difficult. Read more Overcoming disorientation: Practical ways to assemble MEMS inertial sensors August 13, 2014 Overcoming disorientation: Practical ways to assemble MEMS inertial sensors In this article we describe how MEMS inertial sensors, e.g., gyroscopes and accelerometers, can help someone or something to overcome spatial disorientation. We explain how external forces and movement will impact system operation, and how component placement and mounting conditions—spatial relationships—directly ... Read more The Filter Wizard: Just add a transistor or clipping me softly August 12, 2014 The Filter Wizard: Just add a transistor or clipping me softly Kendall Castor-Perry of Cypress Semiconductor, otherwise known as The Filter Wizard, looks at a minimal component method of mitigating noise in an oversampled audio system. Read more A new breed of analog design tools August 11, 2014 A new breed of analog design tools Erin Mannas, a marketing manager at Maxim Integrated Products Inc. looks at design tools for multi-rail, multi-load, multi-chip power systems. Read more MEMS imitates logic August 04, 2014 MEMS imitates logic There were those that said history would not repeat itself. But evidence continues to accumulate that the MEMS sector will follow a similar path to CMOS logic. Read more LED lighting: unintended effects in public lighting July 31, 2014 LED lighting: unintended effects in public lighting Luca Difalco, a vice president of marketing for STMicroelectronics, considers the unintended consequences that may come from turning to LEDs for street lighting. Read more Sensor footprint evolution: Does size matter? July 30, 2014 Sensor footprint evolution: Does size matter? Steve Barraclough, senior director of product management at Bosch Sensortec, reckons that sensor size matters in the market – but mainly in opening up new applications. In the case of inertial MEMS sensors that is likely to be opening up wearable applications rather than winning mobile design slots. ... Read more IoT: sensor fusion or confusion? July 29, 2014 IoT: sensor fusion or confusion? Jay Esfandyari, ST's director of MEMS product marketing, thinks about sensor fusion and where it can lead. Read more The Filter Wizard: 'three-legs' and the 4-20 mA current loop July 24, 2014 The Filter Wizard: 'three-legs' and the 4-20 mA current loop Kendall Castor-Perry of Cypress Semiconductor, otherwise known as The Filter Wizard, looks at some tricks for implementing a 4 to 20mA loop systems Read more
