As applications engineers, we are constantly bombarded with a variety of questions about driving high-speed analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) with differential inputs. Indeed, selecting the right ADC driver and configuration can be challenging. To make the design of robust ADC circuits somewhat easier, we’ve compiled a set of common “road hazards” and solutions.
In determining the safety of improbably small materials known as nanoparticles, special properties associated with some of the very smallest particles may be the key, scientists said on Sunday.
Vishay Intertechnology announced a planar transformer designed for switchmode power supply (SMPS) applications, including flyback, forward, push-pull, and half-bridge converters. The Sfernice PLAC 100 is user-configurable with software supplied by Vishay, which allows designers to
With 10 discrete component functions integrated on one chip, the EPCOS ESD/EMI audio filter (CA04F2FT5AAUD010G) reduces parasitic noise and increases audio quality in portable devices. The filter features low series resistance, comes in a 405, two-fold array package, a cut-off frequency of
The FXA series of ceramic SMD (surface mount device) automotive-grade crystals from Fox Electronics feature a frequency range from 6 MHz to 150 MHz. The crystals have standard frequency stabilities from ±50 ppm to ±100 ppm and operating temperatures from -40°C to 125°C.
The LT3050 voltage linear regulator, from Linear Technology, offers low noise operation of 30µVRMS across a bandwidth range of 10 Hz to 100 kHz. The device delivers up to 100 mA output current with a 340 mV dropout voltage at full load. It features a 2 V to 45 V input voltage range, delivering adjustable output voltages from 0.6 V to 44.5 V.
Cyber criminals are increasingly targeting small and medium-sized businesses that don't have the resources to keep updating their computer security, according to federal authorities. Many of the attacks are being waged by organized cyber groups that are based abroad, and they are able to steal not only credit card numbers, but personal information
Designed to provide localised cooling of 19" rack mounted or desktop equipment, the range of 19” 1U standard fan trays from Verotec consists of two depths--a 250 mm deep unit fitted with three fans and a 350 mm deep unit with six fans. The trays are populated with fans operating from 12 VDC, 24 VDC, or 48 VDC, or 115 VAC or 230 VAC
Microsoft is putting its weight behind a new endeavor to which the software giant has agreed to contribute $1 million. Called the CodePlex Foundation, the nonprofit organization describes its mission as enabling the exchange of code and understanding among software companies and open-source communities.
The national stimulus package passed by Congress in February may have been too enthusiastic about spending money on one particular project: figuring out where broadband Internet access is available and how fast it is.
A 0.2% accuracy power and energy meter certified to meet IEC and ANSI class standards, the Shark100 from Electro Industries has 100BaseT Ethernet capability using Modbus TCP as its standard protocol.
Japanese electronics makers NEC Corp., Casio Computer Co. and Hitachi said Monday they will combine their mobile phone handset-manufacturing operations by April next year in a bid to boost their competitiveness at home and abroad.
Motorola Inc shares rose 6.5 percent on Friday on hopes the company could turn around its loss-making handset business with the new cellphone it developed with Google Inc.
Designed for use in daytime running lights, 1-W OSLON MX ECE and0.5-W SX ECE LEDs from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors provide from 70 to 95 lm and 40 to 60 lm respectively.
China broke ground on its fourth space center Monday, highlighting the country's soaring space ambitions six years after it sent its first man into orbit. The space port on the southern island province of Hainan incorporates a launch site and mission control center for slinging the country's massive new rockets into space carrying satellites and components for a future space station and deep space exploration.
