Driving high resolution SAR ADCs EET Videos 2/4/2016 Post a comment The LTC®6363 is a low power, low noise, fully differential op amp with rail-to-rail outputs optimized to drive low power SAR ADCs. The LTC6363 draws only 1.9mA supply current in active operation and features a shutdown mode which reduces the current.
Ultralow noise & Ultrahigh PSRR EET Videos 8/4/2015 Post a comment The LT®3042 is a high performance low dropout linear regulator featuring LTC’s ultralow noise and ultrahigh PSRR architecture for powering noise sensitive RF applications.
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.
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
