Simplify LCD designs and reduce power consumption

Here's a guide to core LCD design considerations in the context of a television remote control application which explain how you can minimize the physical footprint and power consumption of designs...

Two-step calibration of sensor signal conditioners

This guide helps you with the calibration of sensor signal conditioning algorithms implemented in signal conditioners that transmit data in analog form. Note that sensor calibration includes the sense-element non-idealities as...

Design considerations for resolver-to-digital converters in electric vehicles

A resolver is an angular position sensor that is commonly used in harsh, rugged environments. A fully electric vehicle (EV) may use multiple resolvers for a variety of control systems that...

Elite Precision Super-TCXOs for 5G, Small Cell and Time Synchronisation

Have you heard of an elite precision Super-TCXO for 5G, Small Cell and Time Synchronisation? It can stand up to common environmental hazards – airflow, temperature perturbation, vibration, shock, power supply noise...

MOSFET power losses and how they affect power-supply efficiency

Power-supply efficiency is a critical criterion for today’s cloud-infrastructure hardware. The efficiency of the chosen power solutions relates to system power loss and the thermal performance of integrated circuits (ICs), printed...

Enabling new architecture for phased-array radars

Electronically controlling the beam direction of a phased array antenna has been in use since the mid-twentieth century. However, most antennas still rely on analog methods to steer the beam. The...

Simple battery monitoring in ultra-low-power applications

A common requirement in battery-powered applications like metering, handheld or wearable products is to know the charge level of the battery. With this information, the system MCU can estimate the runtime...
