    One question about the guardring for latch up prevention

    One chip has three segments: 1) I/O pad ring (including one supply pin = VEXT, let's say 3V) 2) Core circuit (in VDD domain, let's say 1.8V) 3) One internal regulator (which generates VDD from VEXT). If putting two guardrings between the "I/O pad ring" and the "Core circuit", in order to...

    The best way to simulate full-diff opamp with sc-cmfb?

    Does anybody know how to do the AC simulation for fully-differential OTA with sc-cmfb? This is what I have heard: 1) use vcvs to model the sc-cmfb; however, what should I put the gain for the vcvs? A very large value? Please look at the attachment for the schematic. 2) Use the pac (in...

    Bond bare die directly on PCB

    bare die Hi, Does anybody have the experience to bond the bare die on PCB directly? I bonded a die (delta sigma ADC) on PCB directly, without putting "conductive adhesive" between the die's backside contact and the PCB's ground. Currently, the noise level is too high (about 20dB DR lost)...
