Analog Wire

  • Welcome to the fifth installment of the Get Connected blog series here on Analog Wire ! In my previous post we explored some techniques for measuring random jitter and the components of deterministic jitter in the lab. In this post, we will discuss MLVDS...
  • What’s all this CAN FD stuff anyway? Full duplex? Frequency domain? Fire department? No, actually it is the latest development in the CAN world. FD stands for F lexible D ata-rate and was introduced to the world a couple years ago in a white paper...
  • Whether or not you were ever “afraid” to ask about any of the TINA-TI topics we discussed in Part 1 or in Part 2 of this Analog Wire series, I’m hoping that you find my next topic, noise analysis using TINA-TI , useful in your day to...
  • Welcome to the fourth installment of the Get Connected blog series here on Analog Wire ! In my previous post we explored jitter from a high level examining random jitter (RJ) and the components of deterministic jitter (DJ) that all come together to make...
  • TI recently unveiled a couple of JESD204B digital-to-analog converters (DACs) that include a first-of-its-kind feature for high-speed, quad-channel DACs: the summation block. Located in the signal path after the interpolation filters and complex mixers...
  • PCI Express ® (PCIe®) is an industry leading standard input/output (I/O) technology. It is one of the most commonly used I/O interface in servers, personal computers and other applications. Through the years the standard has evolved to accommodate...
  • 1080p video screen resolution is in almost every home, and like technology does these days, it’s quickly evolving to the next step: 4k video. This presents many challenges for our designer friends, especially in content creation. With the high bandwidth...
  • You need to design a basic op amp circuit at a low supply voltage and are tempted to use that high-voltage, low cost op-amp to save money. But will it work? I’ll show you how to tell. l started with the LM324 device as my example because it is...
  • Welcome to the third installment of the Get Connected blog series here on Analog Wire! In this post, we will be discussing jitter from a high level, as this is a very complex topic and could not be completely covered in detail in a single blog post. ...
  • If you have anything to do with high-speed data capture designs using an FPGA, you’ve probably heard the new buzz word, ‘ JESD204B ’. In my role here at TI, I’ve seen a lot of engineers request information on the JESD204B interface...
