  • Ten years ago, before Internet of Things became a buzzword, our company had a simple idea to make it easier for developers to add complex radio technologies such as Wi-Fi® to their embedded applications. The prospect was mind-blowing. Wireless connectivity would open doors for customers, allowing them to collect data and provide an unlimited range of new services. It was like the early days of th...

  • In my last post, I discussed what an electrical fast transient (EFT) is at a high-level. For part two, let’s explore why EFTs matter and why they should be considered during your design process. Ultimately, EFTs matter for two key reasons: First, acceptable amounts of interference will vary greatly from application to application and could ultimately affect your bottom line. Since testing and robu...

  • Signal integrity, the measure of electrical signal quality, can be visualized by displaying a signal waveform on an oscilloscope. This visualization is commonly known as an eye diagram, and is generated by overlaying the waveform’s positive and negative bits. When superimposed, these bits produce an image that resembles an open eye, hence the name “eye diagram”. Eye diagrams are a useful tool duri...

  • Hello I bought tida00142 for controllling bldc motor for solar car. The exist microprossor is 28035 and ı had 28069 control card. Our motor specs are 2.5kw, 48v, 26 poles and 56 a full load current. Firstly we install motorware software and used kit with 28069 card. We tried instaspin foc and identified motor parameters with sensorless fast algorithm by using instaspin foc gui. After 75% of load m...

  • People mostly associate smart meters with electric meters (e-meters), but after seeing the benefits that smart meters brought to the e-meters market – delivering real-time consumption data to consumers so they could manage their usage and fighting against theft through tamper detection – consumers want the same benefits in water and gas flow meters. One key difference between e-meters and flow met...

  • What about negative impedance, say from an instrumentation amplifier with a series ferrite bead and R/C values at the AINx pin? How does negative impedance, one or more megohm effect acquisition timing? Does the lower or negative source impedance actually improve transient isolation and settling/acquisition times? There must be some kind of trade off involved?

  • Hi Tim. The newest technology laser utilized is a UV/IR type laser. This laser is focused from the back of the wafer into the bulk silicon in the dicing street area. At the focal point the laser generates heat and converts Silicon to polysilicon (~15x40um zone). This zone is under great compression forces from surrounding silicon and creates a high tensile area at the top and bottom of the zone. T...
