Continuing to set the standard for precision amplifiers, Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ:TXN) introduced the first operational amplifier (op amp) to offer both zero-drift and zero-crossover technology. The OPA388 op amp maintains high precision across the entire input range for a variety of industrial applications, including test and measurement, medical and safety equipment, and high-resolution data-acquisition […]READ MORE
The semi-expert techniques for automating amplifier circuit designs calls for a combination of hard specification requirements and judgement margins. A design tool must support these techniques to zero in on the appropriate operational amplifier (op amp) and external components. Figure 1 shows two fundamental circuit examples that implore this type of tool.
Yes, these are simple topologies – but the difficulty is in the detail when selecting amplifiers and external components to meet the performance criteria for the application.
CUI Inc announced a partnership with Lin Engineering, a leading manufacturer of stepper motors, to integrate CUI’s innovative AMT encoder technology with Lin’s latest, high performance motor series.
