Energy Harvesting Applications EET Videos 3/21/2014 Post a comment New developments in ultra-low-power microcontrollers with their high level of integration are enabling monitoring systems that draw sub-milliwatts of power. The LTC®3588-1 is a complete solution to energy harvesting systems.
What Is Digital Power System Management? EET Videos 2/10/2014 Post a comment Digital power or digital power system management (PSM) allows systems designers to simplify and accelerate system characterization and optimization during prototyping, deployment, and field operation.
What Is Linduino? EET Videos 2/10/2014 1 comment The Linduino development platform consists of an Arduino compatible development board, as well as a large library of example firmware. The Linduino One is fully USB isolated and is meant to provide a stable hardware development platform.
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.
