The digitally programmable potentiometer (DPP) has two temperature dependent parameters, writes this now-famous applications guru. The temperature dependence of an analog circuit using a DPP is reduced if the main temperature coefficient can be shifted from the end-to-end resistance of the pot to a more ratiometric value. Catalyst Semiconductor's Chuck Wojslaw gives details.

Today's motion control technology - specifically variable speed motor control - offers a navigation path to the high performing, fuel-efficient vehicles of the future. Running a car from multiple motors (instead of a single fan belt) enables peppy acceleration, precision steering and ride control - all with greater fuel economy. Power management electronics plays a key role, says visionary Alex Lidow.

If there is an analog-to-digital (A/D) converter in the signal path of your signal-condition system, there are three fundamental tools that can be used when assessing the circuit's performance. These include frequency analysis (FFTs), time analysis, and DC analysis techniques. In this tutorial, Microchip Technology's famous apps engineer, Bonnie Baker, offers some waveforms - and advisories for interpreting them.
Engineers note: Capacitors are key to voltage regulator design

Why do LDOs hate ceramic bypass capacitors? Why do LDOs oscillate? Some 99 percent of the "design" problems associated with linear and switching regulators can be traced to the capacitors: the wrong type, the wrong value, or bad physical placement. National Semiconductor's power supply technologist, Chester Simpson offers some long overdue advisories.
