MOSFET Failure Protection EET Videos 12/16/2014 Post a comment How do you protect the load and ensure output continues to regulate if a DrMOS or MOSFET failure occurs? In this video, we show how the LTC3774 controller can be used in conjunction with Hot Swap and ideal diode circuits to meet this challenge.
DAC for Demanding Signal Generation EET Videos 12/16/2014 Post a comment The LTC2000 high-speed DAC has low noise and excellent spectral purity for demanding signal-generation applications. This video shows the LTC2000 and LTC6946 high-frequency synthesizer -- a clocking solution with excellent noise and spurious performance.
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 1 comment 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.
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
