Blog Post: Stress-induced outbursts: Microphonics in ceramic capacitors (Part 1) / (TI E2E Community)
While working on a low-noise amplifier circuit for an upcoming TI Designs reference design , I was caught off-guard by some interesting behavior. Casually moving the printed circuit board (PCB) on my workbench caused the output voltage to jump! Fascinated, I decided to perform a highly scientific test: I tapped on the PCB...

This white paper, written by Vlad Konopelko, Product Marketing Manager, North America, for Pentair’s Schroff brand, introduces seven essential mechanical structure and protection standards and design considerations for specifying a reliable 19” electronics cabinet solution for non-IT applications
As signaling rates continue to increase, maintaining signal integrity has become a much greater challenge for developers. Migrating a system to a next-generation interface operating at 5, 8, 10, or 12 Gbps brings with it increased sensitivity to attenuation and jitter that can severely curtail reach and reliability.
Precision is at the heart of every diagnostic device. The precision of a system is the degree to which the system will consistently provide the same result given the same operating conditions. Precision is crucial – whether a system is a complex magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sensor, an embedded tire pressure sensor, or a low-cost blood glucose meter – because it serves as the foundation for both accuracy and reliability. For example, if a meter’s readings between two equivalent samples vary significantly, it will be difficult for the system to determine an appropriate response.
