    Blog Post: Design a pre-tracking regulator, part 1: for a positive-output LDO
    Published. February 18, 2019

    By Arief Hernadi and Frank DeStasi The efficiency of a low-dropout regulator (LDO) depends on its input voltage and output voltage, since the input current drawn from the power supply will be equal to the current required at the output of the LDO. Therefore, a higher input and output voltage difference in the LDO translates to a lower efficiency value, and vice versa. An LDO with low efficiency translates into power loss and causes heating inside the device. Sometimes, you are going to need an LDO...

    Back to Basics: Weights and Measures Week 2018
    Published. March 7, 2018

    Happy Weights and Measures Week 2018! What’s “Weights and Measures Week,” you might ask? That’s the week set aside every year to commemorate the signing of the first weights and measures law by President John Adams on March 2, 1799. Unless you love history, you’re probably thinking, “Boring! That was so long ago, it can’t possibly be of interest to me.” Well, read on. Let’s first consider all the things you buy based on weight, measure or count. Milk for your cereal; gasoline...

    Soft Errors - Hard Facts
    Published. July 17, 2018

    I am long overdue to include a blog on the functional safety requirements for software and indeed the functional safety requirements for Verilog code however this isn’t that blog. By soft errors I mean bit flips in RAM or FF that are not caused by hard errors and therefore disappear when the power is cycled. Previously soft errors were largely ignored and reliability predictions concentrated on hard errors but when IEC 61508-2:2010 mentioned soft errors they could no longer be ignored. This...

    Modern cars are well on their way to revolutionizing the automotive industry. Intel’s 2017 whitepaper reports that “the newest cars on the road are equipped with active safety features that help protect drivers and passengers, heads-up displays that makes it easy to read instruments, and in-vehicle infotainment that makes the trip more enjoyable.” But with an IoT-enabled automobile comes greater security risks. And by 2020, analysts estimate that there will be more than 250 million connected...
