Exactly. For typical headset applications, you only care about distortion at lower power levels: less than 2mW power to the load. SNR, on the other hand, is important across the dynamic range.

I guess for this application you don't need better distortion because the consumer won't be able to hear it. SNR is something they would hear and complain about if they were using the product in a quiet environment. If the SNR was low the user would notice it at lower volume settings.

Hello, Hughston. My name is Robert Rich, and I'm in the analog communications group at TI. I've got an answer to your question. The TLV320DAC3202 was designed for portable headset applications like media players, where typical average power levels are 0.1 to 2mW for a 32 ohm headset. Headset loads range between 16 to 150 ohms, and OEMs add a series resistor between the output of the headset amplifier and the load for acoustic safety reasons. The large swing of 1VRMS at the ball of the IC guarantees adequate power to the load even when the series resistor is added.

So this chip will put out 1 Vrms but the THD curves are show for 10 to 15 mW and the THD is listed at 68 dB for 20 mW into 16 ohms. I think I would rather see what the THD numbers are for higher drive levels. I wonder how good the part really has to be for a consumer audio product? The SNR looks good enough but maybe not the THD.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
