Sometimes a flyer for the IC provides a better features and benefits discussion. Alternatively, the press release for the IC or an article about the IC in a technical magazine may put the features in proper perspective. Ultimately, if you are meeting a design requirement specified by a customer, that may allow you to zero in on required vs nice to have features.
Good point. For those that did not catch yesterday's session, TI Webbench provides signal conditioning for sepcifc sensors in their database and they have alternatives for the ICs in the design so you can zero in on the ocst-perfoemance tradeoff you need.
Just a comment for the WEB moderators - The audio on my computer keeps cutting out. The player button keeps acting like the "Pause" button was pushed. I can sometimes get it going just by hitting the "play" button on the audio control bar, but today was unusually bad. I only got through about half of the slides.
I did try refreshing the screen several times but nothing seems to work.
The 100% solar-powered airplane Solar Impulse 2 is prepping for its upcoming flight, becoming the first plane to fly around the world without using fuel. It's able to do so because of above-average performance by all of the technologies that go into it, especially materials.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
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.
