Differential Amplifier Calculator is a free, downloadable, graphical
differential amplifier design tool that reduces engineering calculation times
from hours to minutes. Using the calculator, engineers designing systems for
communications, instrumentation and medical markets and who use ADI's
high-speed differential amplifiers in their products are able to lower design
risk and improve time to market. An updated, downloadable version of ADI's
ADIsimDiffAmpTM design tool, the ADI Differential Amplifier Calculator automates
several time-consuming calculations required to determine optimal levels for
gain, termination resistors, power dissipation, noise output and input
common-mode voltage. The calculator supports the following high-speed
differential amplifiers: AD8132, AD8137, AD8138, AD8139, ADA4927, ADA4932, ADA4937,
ADA4938 and ADA4939. The design tool's intuitive graphical user interface
features an interactive dashboard that provides engineers with a simple "point
and click" method for quickly and easily adding and changing data. Data changes
appear in real time, providing users the ability to create unlimited "what- if"
In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
