Blog Post: Cap-drop offline power supply for light-load applications made SIMPLE / (TI E2E Community)
Low-power applications such as e-meters often require a simple offline power supply, where 3.3V powers up a microcontroller and charges a lithium-ion battery to 4.2V. You can do this with a mains frequency power transformer or with a complex AC/DC offline power supply. Both approaches have well-known disadvantages related...
Mobile Future Forward Update / (Always On Real)
Dear friends, Over the past couple of years, I have talked a lot about the “Connected Intelligence” Era which is a superset of the Industrial Internet and IoT. We already have plenty of data points to indicate the rise of the next technology era enabled by sensors and software. While consumer gizmos get [...]...
When I think back back just a few years ago, there were only a handful of devices that noticeably responded to changes in their environment by sensing the presence of something or a change in position. Not that these were the only ones, but these were the ones that were part of my regular “consumer” interaction...

Do you need some sort of circuit between your sensor and an analog-to-digital converter? Before you make any connections, get the electrical specifications for the analog-to-digital converter (ADC) and for the sensor or sensors in your system. The explanation in this white paper will help you understand what you need and why you need it.
How often should your equipment make measurements? This question often arises when people draft plans to automatically measure a physical quantity such as temperature, pressure, acidity, liquid level, and so on. You can approach this problem in several ways, from an educated guess to a mathematical analysis of your system. The examples in this white paper use temperature measurements because people measure temperature more than any other physical characteristic.
In most applications, linearity in analog measurements is more important than absolute precision. Ideally, in an A/D converter the digital value ramps smoothly as the input increases across its entire range. The deviation from ideal operation is a function of each ADC’s particular architecture and is expressed as differential nonlinearity (DNL). Find out how DNL is determined and the effect it has on making accurate measurements in this white paper.
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
