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.
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.
January 2016 Cartoon Caption ContestBob's punishment for missing his deadline was to be tied to his chair tantalizingly close to a disconnected cable, with one hand superglued to his desk and another to his chin, while the pages from his wall calendar were slowly torn away.122 comments
