A Baker's Dozen: Real Analog Solutions for Digital Designers by Bonnie Baker

By Bonnie Baker

This e-book has been written to aid electronic engineers who desire a few uncomplicated analog instruments of their toolbox. For practising electronic engineers, scholars, educators and hands-on managers who're searching for the analog beginning they should deal with their day-by-day engineering difficulties, it will function a helpful connection with the nuts-and-bolts of process analog layout in a electronic world.

This e-book is a hands-on designer's advisor to crucial subject matters in analog electronics - equivalent to Analog-to-Digital and Digital-to-Analog conversion, operational amplifiers, filters, and integrating analog and electronic platforms. The presentation is customized for engineers who're basically skilled and/or trained in electronic circuit layout. This ebook will train such readers the best way to "think analog" while it's the top option to their challenge. distinctive cognizance can also be given to basic subject matters, similar to noise and the way to exploit analog attempt and size apparatus, which are frequently missed in different analog titles aimed toward specialist engineers.

  • Extensive use of case-histories and genuine layout examples
  • Offers electronic designers the appropriate analog "tool" for the task at hand
  • Conversational, annecdotal "tone" is especially simply available by way of scholars and practitioners alike

23 CHAPTER 2 The Basics Behind Analog-to-Digital Converters CHAPTER 2 The Basics Behind Analog-to-Digital Converters The analog-to-digital converter (ADC) is always in the back seat of the station wagon, looking at the analog signal through the rear window. In a way, I am soft on this device because this is where I was in my family’s station wagon throughout my childhood, being one of six children. The controller, in the front seat, can see the results of the converter’s labor, but the question is, can those results be counted on?

The parasitic elements of a standard resistor are parallel capacitance (CP) and series inductance (LS). 00 MΩ ± 1% LS ≈ 5 nH CP ≈ 0. 5 pF CP The fact is, I never worry about the parasitic capacitance until I started designing transimpedance, optical, photodiode-sensing circuits. 14. If blindly built (without concern for the parasitic capacitance), this photosensing circuit can mysteriously sing like a bird (oscillate) without too much effort. This oscillation is usually caused by an inappropriate choice of CF, but it can also be caused by that phantom capacitor, CP.

The basic topology of the PGA stage is a differential switched capacitor amplifier. The switched capacitive topology uses a combination of oversampling and capacitor gain to achieve the possible gains of 1, 2, 4, 8 and 16. With this stage, the signal is clocked in on the rising edge of the sampling clock and transferred by the falling edge of the sampling clock to a second group of capacitors. For a PGA gain of one, the next rising clock edge sends the first signal forward to the modulator section of the A/D converter as well as sampling a second input signal.
