How to Measure Shared On-Die Power Rails

By David Maliniak and Eric Bogatin

If you're taking power-rail measurements on a semiconductor die that is appropriately instrumented with sense lines and a direct connection to the die's core PDN, you're in pretty good shape. But what if that's not the case? If the die's I/O power rails are shared by the core power rails, here's a way to get your core power-rail measurements anyway.

New High-performance Oscilloscope From Rohde & Schwarz

Rohde & Schwarz introduced the new high-performance R&S RTP oscilloscope. During the development of the new oscilloscope family, the focus was on measurement accuracy, speed, a wide range of functions and future-proof technology. The R&S RTP oscilloscope combines signal integrity with a high acquisition rate.


Dialog Semiconductor Enters Growing Haptics Market with Ultra Low Power and Compact Haptic IC

Dialog Semiconductor plc, a provider of highly integrated power management, AC/DC power conversion, charging, and Bluetooth® low energy technology, unveiled the DA7280, a new Haptic Driver Integrated Circuit (IC).




Concepts of Signal Integrity: Impedance

By Mentor
Without a thorough understanding of the impedance values that a signal encounters along the way, designers cannot maintain good signal quality from source to receiver. This paper defines the difference between characteristic and instantaneous impedance and explores the essential principles of impedance and design-controlled impedance.

Best IoT Board Design Practices: Balancing Density, Cost, Low Power, and Mixed Signal

IoT applications with an embedded controller, sensors, actuators and a wireless interface are proliferating in many applications. Most of these designs are cost driven, low power driven and with a specific form factor. We'll introduce the seven most important design guidelines useful for all IoT boards which reduce the chance of SI/PI and EMI problems.
