A standard PSoC can be configured to provide a linear feedback shift register, which is turn can be provide a digital pseudo-random sequence which, with appropriate filtering, yields white-noise source covering the audio band....More
Learn about the top test challenges Engineers face when testing serial buses. In this 40-page paper, we cover 10 of today’s most common serial buses including USB, SPI, Ethernet, CAN, LIN and more...More
2013 saw its share of innovations, both evolutionary and revolutionary. So which ones will have the greatest impact on technology in 2014 and beyond? After a hard look back at the past 12 months, our editors have chosen their picks for the Best Electronic Design of 2013 in their respective beats.
This analytical and graphical technique allows engineers to determine, in closed form, the output of an RC filter driven by a PWM pulse train. It is based on the principle that current and voltage cannot change instantaneously in a real-world circuit, and the endpoint of one time phase or state of a circuit is the beginning point for the next phase....More
When evaluating the dynamic performance of precision ADCs using FFT analysis, coherent sampling provides the best results. In cases where coherent sampling cannot be achieved, a window function with low-side lobes is required to resolve the noise and harmonic components in the frequency spectrum....More
