    How to design an AC coupled differential input comparator

    Hello, I need to design a differential comparator with maximum of 100V common mode range, with 200mV is hystersis, AC coupled, 10KHz Bandwidth. This is to detect pulse inputs. It would be great help if anyone can suggest design steps. Thanks in Advance!

    Why Voltage reference is overshooting to 3.5V from 2.5V when it is used to bias opamp

    Hi All, We are using one voltage reference 2.5V to bias two AC-Coupled non-inverting amplifiers with gains 4 and 50. But, i could see that output is oscillating. Vref is found to be overshooting to a value of 3.6V from 2.5V. I am suspecting it is operational amplifier stability issue. But, if i...

    Do the Ferrite clamps attenuate wanted differential signals like ethernet signals?

    Do the Ferrite clamps attenuate wanted differential signals also like ethernet signals? I mean, i wanted to attenuate common mode radition and hence i am planning to use a ferrite bead with high impedance. I bother whether it can effect my differential signal since the working frequency is close...

    Ethernet magnetics selection guide

    Hello, I need select a ethernet magnetics for my application of 10/100BaseT. Please suggest me how to start the magnetics selection and what are the parameters that are to be considered whiel selecting magnetics? When do we use 1.25:1 magnetics instead of 1:1 magnetics? When do we use RJ45...

    What are the errors that can be calibrated in an ADC?

    Hello, I am starter in ADC design. While I am going through ADC specifications, i found that ENOB =12 though it is 16 bit ADC. Then what is the specific reason for using 16 bit ADC than 12 bit ADC? Can not we use an 12-bit ADC without any missing codes? For any ADC, what are the parameters that...

    Thermal Bump test design guide

    Hello All, I have to design a product which has to go through thermal Shock test. Can you guide me on this how to start design for proper protection for this test. I have read that using less Tg conformal coating materials and reducing thermal resistance of PCB can reduce thermal shock...

    impedance vs characterstic impedance

    Hi, Is there any difference between impedance and charasteric impedance? As per my understaning, impedance depends on frequency, but charasteric impedance is independent of frequency. So, i am assuming that both are not same. Please comment on this.

    Differntial mode currnts and EM radiation

    Hello, I have read that common mode currents are primarily responsible for most of the radiation problems. Does it mean that differential mode current will cause any issue in radiation point of view? In radiation susceptibility, will it cause differential current in the design or only common...

    Query on optocoupler with diode in series

    Hello, In our design, we used existing schematics for opto-coupler circuit. It has one diode (D1) (whose Vr = 1500 V) in series to photo diode of opto-coupler. Photo diode current is limited to 1.1mA with current limiting resistor of 200K ohm. This circuit is to monitor 230Vac line voltage...

    Diffference between Totem pole and push pull outputs

    Hello All, My design needs to connect 4 outputs of an IC to drive single RESET pin. I do not have open dran/collector output pins available. Can i use push pull or totem pole outputs pins (all tied together to drive RESET input of another MCU? What is the difference between Totem pole and push...

    Can a different power supply plane be a Return path for a signal in trace?

    Hello All, Can we use different power plane as reference for a signal which uses different power supply? I think using ground plane as reference is always best, if not possible, we need to use any reference power plane as reference but that power plane has to be tightly coupled to ground with...
