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.
Battle-hardened veterans of the electronics industry have heard of the “connected car” so often that they assume it’s a done deal. But do we really know what it takes to get a car connected and what its future entails? Join EE Times editor Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of movers and shakers in the connected car business. Executives from Cisco, Siemens and NXP will share ideas, plans and hopes for connected cars and their future. After the first 30 minutes of the radio show, our listeners will have the opportunity to ask questions via live online chat.
