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.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
