    Published. November 17, 2017

    CASPA is the Chinese American Semiconductor Professional Association. Once a year they have their annual conference and dinner banquet. I ended up getting involved with them a few years ago when I stepped in with 24-hours' notice to moderate a panel session for them, plus they like to get some coverage. So I went along one Saturday recently to the Santa Clara Convention Center.

    Published. June 11, 2012

    Amir, Information about your circuit, your testbench, and the simulator options that you have tried is always useful to provide when asking for assistance with debugging. Here are some things that I look at and have useful in the past. 1) Plot the pulse width versus time to see if the circuit really is in steady state a. My experience is that DC-to-DC Converters need to be closer to periodic steady-state than RF circuits such as an LNA b. You should also check that the pulse width settles to steady...
