  • Blog Post: Power up: 6 power management trends to address growing energy requirements  /  (TI E2E Community)

    As our world becomes increasingly reliant on technology, global energy consumption is growing dramatically. Driven by many applications – including data centers, automotive and industrial – global consumer spending on electricity has neared spending on oil products. (1) To support these trends, designers are utilizing...

  • RC Extraction Problem with GPDK045  /  (Jack Erickson's Blog)

    Hi All, I am working with Cadence provided GPDK045 technology. Our course admin has installed the latest version of it (Aug 2017). Still the PDK has bugs and cannot run very basic functionality like RCX extraction. Some user also faced exactly the same error 2 years ago. The solution recommended then was to download the...

  • Analog Signal Conditioning for Accurate Measurements

    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.

  • Determining an Effective Analog Sampling Rate

    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.

  • Differential Nonlinearity in Analog Measurements

    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.
