Increased functionality Cars are undergoing an evolution, moving from an electro-mechanical device under the control of a human driver to a completely autonomous vehicle. Today we are getting close to the tipping point, with most new cars equipped with ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems), such as lane tracking, autonomous emergency braking, enhanced vision systems and […]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.
