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"
Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.
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 discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
