Current-mode instrumentation amplifier enhances piezoelectric accelerometer
10.17.2018 Circuits

A typical piezoelectric sensor comprises a disk of PZT-5A ceramic material with metallized electrodes on its surfaces. Applying electrically conductive epoxy to the electrodes connects external wiring to the sensor. An insulating adhesive attaches the assembly to the structure under test and isolates the sensor from ground-referenced potentials...

Fast PWM DAC has no ripple
Fast PWM DAC has no ripple
10.16.2018 Circuits

The enduring simplicity of PWM DACs will always earn them a place in the designer’s cookbook, but slow response time and the problem of PWM ripple tend to limit their appeal and utility. The usual way of attenuating PWM ripple, an RC low pass filter, can never succeed in completely eliminating it, and only makes output settling time agonizingly slow if you try...
