The Myth of Three Capacitor Values

Eric Bogatin, Larry Smith, and Steve Sandler

Many designs today include three different value decoupling capacitors, or when using just one capacitor, a small value like 0.1 uF. These recommendations are based on 50-year-old assumptions that do not apply today. It is time to reconsider these out of date, legacy design guidelines. Read on to learn more.

The Designer’s Guide to: Common Considerations When Selecting a MHz Crystal

Sponsored By Epson

Billions of crystals are manufactured annually to be used in virtually every electronic device. From mobile phones and fitness trackers to cars and cell towers, crystals are the heart beat of products we depend on daily. Crystals are the fundamental building block of electronic oscillator circuits that create an electrical signal with precise frequency. Downlaod the white paper.

Understanding SNDR and All that Goes Into It: Available On-Demand

In this seminar presented by Ransom Stephens, signal to noise and dispersion ratio measurements were used as a lab to understand not only SNDR, but the important quantities that go into it and many other measurements: pulse response and how it relates to features of interconnects like transfer functions and impulse response as well as ISI (inter-symbol interference); waveform fitting, fit deviations, and signal distortion; and measurement of the steady state voltage and pulse peak. In the process, see exactly how SNDR compares electrical signal strength to the combination of random noise and harmonic distortion. View the on-demand presentation today.
