Understanding 100% mode in low-power DC/DC converters

This article explains the 100% mode of operation for low‐power DC/DC converters and compares it with other 100%‐mode implementations.

How to parallel two DC/DC converters with digital controllers

This article presents an example of how to implement such functions in a digital controller that does not already have these capabilities built‐in.

Designing a front‐end interface for vibration sensors that monitor machine health

This article provides a step‐by‐step approach to build the knowledge and an understanding of trade‐offs when designing the interface for an IEPE sensor.

A comparative analysis of topologies for a bridgeless-boost PFC circuit

This article provides an evaluation of common bridgeless‐boost PFC topologies, including an assessment of their advantages and a review of design considerations in current application areas.

Analyzing the impact of clock noise on an RF-sampling DAC system

This article describes how to evaluate the impact of clock noise (random noise and clock spurs) on the performance of a high‐speed DAC.
