It's not just 50 ohms: Some termination tips for differential and single-ended amplifiers Blog 7/24/2002 Post a comment Most designers know that it is necessary to terminate a high-speed circuit to avoid reflection. Termination has been applied to digital, communication, RF, and analog circuits for decades. It is easy to place a 50 ohm resistor on an input and think that the job is done. The errors produced by incorrect understanding of termination are subtle and may go unnoticed. The designer may compensate for them by "tweaking" the circuit, when only a little forethought will yield the correct response from th
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
