Garbage in / garbage out: Input filters enhance A/D converter measurements
News & Analysis  
11/27/2002   Post a comment
Analog-to-Digital Converters (A/D converters) are capable of quite impressive noise and distortion performance. However, even the best signal generators and synthesizers produce signals that are not spectrally pure enough to evaluate noise and distortion performance of A/D converters. A National apps guy reminds us that even the best test set ups can benefit from an input filter.
Differential Hall-effect sensors aid rotational speed control
News & Analysis  
11/27/2002   Post a comment
The rotational speed of motors with gear teeth can be precisely monitored and controlled with new-generation Hall-effect sensors. BiCMOS technology provides devices with high-sensitivity and speed, and yet small enough to fit inside motor housings or other tight spaces. Allegro's ace applications engineer explains their principles of operation, and provides a guideline for analog signal conditioning.
