Sponsored Technology Content Resistor Noise Can be Deafening, and Hard to ReduceIn Partnership with Analog Devices
It may not be the amplifier causing the trouble, analyze where the noise is actually coming from. Remarkably often the problem is not the amplifier, though, but the thermal noise generated by one of more of the three resistors that set the amplifier gain and provide bias current compensation.

At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
