Analog Wire

  • In my last post , I explained the importance of JESD204B subclasses and reviewed the details of subclass 0 and 1. Today, I’ll explore subclass 2. Subclass 2 Subclass 2 analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and digital-to-analog converters (DACs...
  • Most of the JESD204B standard addresses the data interface between logic devices and converters, so what are the clocking requirements? For JESD204B subclass 1, the clocking requirement is quite simple: use the SYSREF rising edge to mark the device clock...
  • In this blog, I’ll look at a key feature of the JESD204B standard that defines a method to achieve deterministic latency for each link and subsequently multi-device synchronization. Some applications, such as synchronous sampling, multi-channel...
  • This is a guest post written by David Birnbaum, who’s the UX design manager at Immersion Corporation. The spotlight on haptic technology is intensifying as touch screens and touch surfaces without screens start to populate every day household...
  • Industrial system designers working with applications that have exposure to high voltages are required to comply with system-level IEC standards to ensure their end equipment has adequate insulation. These standards, such as IEC 61800-5-1 for adjustable...
  • Welcome back to the Get Connected blog series on Analog Wire ! In the previous post, Interfacing between LVPECL, VML, CML, LVDS, and Sub-LVDS Levels , we took a closer look at how to convert between LVPECL, VML, CML, LVDS and Sub-LVDS interfaces using...
  • Although it can be hard for some people to do two things at once, for electronic communications, it’s just part of the job. In fact, simultaneous two-way communication, referred to as full-duplex transmission, is nothing new. Just as your phone...
  • Are you trying to use an inductive sensor but you have an interfering conductor nearby? This problem can be resolved by inserting a sheet of ferrite material between the interfering metal and the sensor coil. Inductive sensing technology measures proximity...
  • If you’ve ever sat down and designed (from scratch) a discrete 4-20 mA control loop, you may have found it a bit more challenging than it appeared. First, current loop communication (both analog and digital) have been around for many, many years...
  • In a broad sense, “haptics” refers to the feeling of touch. It could be a simple vibration feedback from any human-machine interface, like a smartphone, to recreating surfaces and textures on a tablet screen. Haptics is used to deliver...
