20-Bit 1Msps 0.5ppm INL SAR ADC EET Videos 10/15/2013 Post a comment The LTC®2378-20 is a versatile general purpose ADC that provides state-of-the-art performance at any sampling rate up to 1MHz. In this video, we will show that it is ADC non-linearity, as opposed to noise, that ultimately limits the measurement accuracy that can be achieved with an ADC.
LTpowerCAD II: A Design Tool for Switching Regulators EET Videos 10/15/2013 2 comments Switching power supply design can often be a challenging and time-consuming experience. Typically this requires knowledge of aspects such as control loop compensation, IC operation and capabilities, filtering, and even power loss mechanisms related to DC/DC switching regulators.
Cable Drop Compensator Improves Load Regulation EET Videos 6/4/2013 Post a comment Power distribution systems such as USB are ubiquitous. They can be found in automotive dashboards, home charging systems and office equipment. Cellphones, electric toothbrushes, PC printers and personal computers all use battery chargers.
Switcher Power Loss EET Videos 4/3/2012 Post a comment Efficiency is a misleading number for comparison of switching regulators. The efficiency number can be manipulated by the input and output voltage, while power loss is more tightly tied to the actual circuit. This video explains why.
Virtual Remote Sense EET Videos 11/29/2010 Post a comment Compensating for unknown wire drops without remote sensing wires is now possible. The LT4180 continuously modulates the power supply output current to interrogate the line drop.
Energy Harvesting Applications EET Videos 8/27/2010 Post a comment New developments in ultralow power microcontrollers with their high level of integration are enabling monitoring systems which draw sub milliwatts of power. The LTC®3588-1 is a complete solution to energy harvesting systems.
Blog Doing Math in FPGAs Tom Burke 24 comments For a recent project, I explored doing "real" (that is, non-integer) math on a Spartan 3 FPGA. FPGAs, by their nature, do integer math. That is, there's no floating-point ...
