It seems to me that there is a bit of charge injection going to occur and that it may contribute to some forms of noise. That is my understanding of how at least some of the switching filter noise is created. There are probably a few other mechaniss as well.

OK I thought you were referring to sensitivity to noise on the input signal, that should be the same as a continuous time filter.  (Assuming it's under 1/2 the clock frequency.)

Because a lot of switching occurs within the IC and in surrounding circuits, you can get more noise on the output than you would with op-amp-based filter circuits.

Hi Jon,

What exactly do  you mean by "They exhibit greater sensitivity to noise than their op-amp-based filter siblings"?

This was one of the nice way to replace the resistors and it was also very interesting to know about it.

What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
