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...
Sure, most modern homes have much more advanced water heating systems than a big tank with an electric heater element. Systems that work on ‘point of use’ heating concepts that heat the water as it is being delivered, not heating up a large storage container for later use. One day I hope to live in […]...

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
Today, the ability to track the orientation or position of a device is a common feature in many portable and wearable products. Computing the orientation is a non-trivial task that
The number of Wearable Technology and Internet of Everything devices is projected to be in the billions over the next 10 years. Primary batteries that must be discarded are not the right powering solution. New solid state batteries that are charged using Energy Harvesting or Wireless Charging will be used.
Windows CE (a.k.a. Windows Embedded Compact), originally released in 1996, can be an attractive alternative to the full Windows operating system offering system designers the ability to control power, size, and cost in a new product. For example, the runtime license cost of the CE operating system alone can save as much as $150 over the license cost for standard Windows. Additionally, the componentized nature of CE is recognized as more stable and reliable than the Windows for desktop machines.
