Electronics and Electrical Engineering Application Notes

Read the latest electronics engineering product design Application Notes.

Interfacing a Differential-Output (Isolated) Amplifier to a Single-Ended Input ADC

Whether you are sensing current in an industrial 3-phase servo motor system, a battery management system for an electric vehicle, or a photo voltaic inverter, it is often necessary to...

Extend Battery Life and Simplify Calibration in Gas Sensing Applications

In a carbon monoxide (CO) gas sensing application, a gas sensor node must continuously monitor the CO gas concentration and generate an alarm if the concentration exceeds a given limit...

Integrated, Current Sensing Analog-to-Digital Converter

The signal chain path for measuring current is typically consistent from system to system. Whether current is measured in a computer, automobile or motor, the common functional blocks used...

Low-Cost, Low-Power, Small Size, 14-bit AFE

Across many segments of the market such as SONAR, thermal cameras, and optical modules there is a need for high-resolution, high-speed, analog-to-digital conversion. Interleaving multiple lower throughput analog-to-digital converters...

Flexible Range ADC with I2C Interface

  The ADC is essentially comprised of an analog comparator and a Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC). The comparator senses the input voltage vs. the DAC output voltage, and subsequently controls whether...

Interfacing High Speed ADCs with xCORE

  This application note shows how to interface high speed ADCs with xCORE devices. It also gives an overview about the advantages of using xCORE buffered I/O ports, clock blocks and xCONNECT communication...

Understanding PulSAR ADC Support Circuitry

Successive approximation register (SAR) analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) use various new techniques for improved resolution. Understanding how these devices work is important in preventing malfunction and erroneous issues. This application note...

Designing With The HMC346MS8G Voltage Variable Attenuator

The HMC346MS8G is an absorptive Voltage Variable Attenuator (VVA) in an 8 lead surface-mount package operating from DC - 8 GHz. It features an on-chip reference attenuator for use with...

RF Sampling ADC With 800 MHz of IBW LTE

The family of ADC32RFx5 is a dual-channel 14-bit analog to digital converter (ADC) and provides 3 Gsps of ADC sample rate. This device has a total of 8 lane JESD204B...

Peak-to-Peak Resolution Versus Effective Resolution

The low bandwidth, high resolution ADCs have a resolu- tion of 16 bits or 24 bits. However, the effective number of bits of a device is limited by noise.This varies...
