Analyzing inductive noise in power grids News & Analysis 9/4/2003 Post a comment In any chip design, large, rapidly changing currents in a circuit block can cause large inductive voltage changes in a low resistance power grid. These voltage changes propagate across the chip with very little attenuation causing timing errors, increased stress in thin gate oxides and, in extreme cases, complete circuit failure. This article from eeDesign.com, by a device physicist and simulation expert, provides designers with an overview of the techniques needed to analyze resistive, inductiv
A disciplined Linear defies downturn News & Analysis 9/1/2003 Post a comment It's no exaggeration to say Linear Technology Corp. has all the bases covered. Name an electronics market" automotive, communications, computing, consumer, industrial, medical, or military" and the supplier of the high-performance analog ICs is there, in many cases with single-source, high-margin products.
As we unveil EE Times’ 2015 Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. Panelists Dan Armbrust (investment firm Silicon Catalyst), Andrew Kau (venture capital firm Walden International), and Stan Boland (successful serial entrepreneur, former CEO of Neul, Icera) join in the live debate.
