length of diffusion lod
Are you referring to Length of Diffusion effect? Well, it's a phenomenon that is causing some detrimental effects on some circuit performance in deep sub-micron process (0.13um and below). I am not a process guy, so I may not be able to explain the exact reason behind...
pulse-width modulated sine wave
Hi, I read it from "The Designer's Guide to Spice and Spectre", that we are able to find the THD of a pulse-width modulated sine wave using the Fourier Integral method by Spectre. The book also mentioned that Fourier integral is not subjected to aliasing.
Well, not true. If it's an ideal THD, you should get -infinity theorectically. Try using a smaller time step to get the THD of an ideal sine wave. You will notice that the THD improves as the time step gets smaller. Try and see.
adc snr matlab
Hi, I have some question regarding the script I got. Part of it is as follows:
% Create the minimum, 4-term Blackman-Harris window for FFT
for i=1:Nt %where Nt is the no. of FFT bins...
Hi, I was wondering if it is neccessary to do a stability check on the circuit in hold mode? My thinking is that since there is a holding capacitor in the feedback loop, the loop is broken (from dc point of view). And also the capacitor is there to hold the charges and there should not be any...
I am currently designing a crystal oscillator. From crystal datasheet, there is usually a specification known as drive level. Is the drive level of the crystal determined by the crystal or is it determined by the oscillator circuit design? Thank you.
I am a new to xtal oscillator design and I hope I can find some useful tips here regarding the start-up transient simulation. I found this website quite useful: https://email@example.com/spice/xtal/clapp.htm. However, when I tried to use the method in my...
Thanks, I see your point.
By the way, do you happen to know how to determine whether the complex poles reside in the LHP or RHP by looking at the relationship among the coefficients of the cubic equation?
I have derived a transfer function containing 3 poles. All the coefficients are positive but from matlab analysis, there is one LHP real pole and a pair of RHP complex poles. Previously, I have a misconception that a cubic equation having all +ve coeff will yield all poles in the LHP. Could...
Try to find a common point between the two loops, if such a point exists. Then break the loops at that particular point to analyze the loop stability. If such a analysis is too difficult, run a transient analysis. Hopefully you won't see ringings in the waveform.
Re: problems about chopper amplifier analysis with pss+pnois
Just curious about the pnoise plot. From papers I read about chopper stabilization method, the 1/f noise of the PSD of chopper amplifier should be shifted to odd harmonics of chopping frequency. But in the PSD plot, I could still see...
Re: LDO question
The ability to suppress the power supply noise depends on the bandwidth of the loop gain. Once the loop gain starts to drop, the loop can no longer rejects power supply noise effectively. The 3dB bandwidth of the loop is determined by the pole at the output of the error amp...
Re: LDO question
It really depends on how large your power transistor is. If the power MOS is large, you might need to add a buffer stage to push the non-dominant pole further. And also, adding buffer will help to improve your power supply ripple rejection.
