Product How-to: Analog integration drives factory integration
Advances in analog and mixed-signal ICs have contributed greatly to unprecedented combinations of factory productivity, efficiency, quality, and safety.
Product How-to: Balancing the major elements of an isolator for safety's sake
Today, digital isolators offer advantages in performance, size, cost, power efficiency and integration.
SAE AS5643 and IEEE1394 deliver flexible deterministic solution for aerospace and defense applications
AS5643 coupled with IEEE-1394 Asynchronous Stream capability provides a programmable rate-based (time-sliced) protocol with a rate determined by a control computer, also known as a Vehicle Management Computer.
Further into the alphabet with interleaved ADCs
In my article earlier this year on EDN entitled "The ABCs of Interleaved ADCs" I discussed the basics of interleaving. The many benefits of interleaving were presented which spanned across many market segments from communications to measurement equipment to military/aerospace.
Finally, a practical approach to space
If government and popular support for further manned space exploration is to be regenerated a new technical approach is needed.
Measure inductance & capacitance over a wide range
Measure inductors and capacitors over a very wide range of values with this simple circuit.
TV tuner standards keep digital TV and LTE from colliding
One of the challenges to the ongoing country-by-country switchover from analog to digital television (DTV) is just emerging: the possibility of television interference due to close proximity of the digital terrestrial TV ultra-high frequency (UHF) band with LTE frequency bands.
How an LCD controller drives an LCD glass
Liquid Crystal Displays (or LCDs) are widely used these days for visual display of data. They are controlled by a microcontroller/microprocessor.
