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"
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
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.
