Blog Post: Differential to single ended: What happens when you use only one differential amplifier output / (TI E2E Community)
Many applications require the conversion of a differential signal to single ended. Some common examples are an RF DAC buffer or a coaxial cable driver. Most of the time you can accomplish this with a magnetic transformer, but sometimes a transformer won’t work. If that’s the case, can you use a fully differential amplifier...

Windows CE 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. 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.
