VRM Modeling: A Strategy to Survive the Collision of Three Worlds

By Steve Sandler, Larry Smith, and Eric Bogatin

This paper reviews four levels of VRM models that VRM designers, board level interconnect designers, semiconductor designers, and product managers often use to explore design tradeoffs throughout the PDN system. The choice of which one to use involves considering engineers’ levels of expertise and what problems they expect to analyze. Some tradeoffs and relative merits of the models are described.

Radio Equipment Directive for Sound and TV Broadcast Receivers

By Rohde & Schwarz

One of the key differences between the R&TTE directive and the new radio equipment directive (RED) is the inclusion of sound and TV broadcast receivers. The ETSI EN 303 340 standard is applicable to digital terrestrial television broad-cast receivers supporting DVB-T and/or DVB-T2 signals. Download the app note to learn more.
