This column describes the operation of an ideal difference amplifier. It is shown that an ideal difference amplifier (with no resistance mismatches) eliminates the common mode portion of the input voltage and amplifies only the differential mode portion of the input voltage.
The behavior of ultra-high-speed interfaces is complex, involving fast-rise time waveforms and on-die transient phenomena that cause device failure at lower CDM levels.
Solving EMI problems isn’t only about ensuring that a product can meet EMC regulations and standards (although it’s a significant part of the job). Another crucial reason for addressing EMI issues is to enhance product reliability, especially when a product operates in public or industrial areas where there are many different types of noise sources.
A manufacturer of electrical test equipment took an order worth several million dollars for new product to be used worldwide to help service the vehicles manufactured by a major multinational.
This article describes a laboratory experiment that shows the impact of the decoupling capacitors and a PCB trace length on the signal integrity in a CMOS inverter circuit.
This column outlines the steps to consider when embedding ESD detection capabilities into your system and overall design flow.
ANSI Z535.4 is a standard developed by ANSI that relates specifically to product safety signs and labels.
