Or use C0G/NP0 MLCCs.

The piezo effect goes both ways, and while the audible noise problem is a concern, the reverse effect of shock and vibration causing an electrical response can be far nastier to deal with. Any low level analog circuit such as audio or hi-res AtoD measurement needs to be very careful to avoid MLCC's in the signal path. Dave

Modify the URL link due to special character "#" in filename. "#" becomes "%23" the same way a " " becomes a "%20" . Then the link will work. http://www.eetimes.com/ContentEETimes/Documents/Power%20Tip%2349%20July%202012_FINAL.pdf

shame it doesn't work, hope that's fixed soon. I was hoping to read something interesting for once.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
