  1. Designers often use thermistors rather than other temperature sensors because thermistors offer high sensitivity, compactness, low cost, and small time constants. But most thermistors' resistance-versus-temperature characteristics are highly ...

  2. The simple ADC in Figure 1 is perfect for getting analog signals into a purely digital microcontroller. Using just five surface-mount parts, you can assemble it for less than 50 cents (1000), which is approximately half the cost of a ...

  3. For safety reasons, a motor that drives a safety-critical electromechanical assembly often includes an electromagnetic brake on its drive shaft. The brake typically comprises a solenoid coil that actuates a mechanical clutch, and, when you power ...

  4. Circuits Oscillators Analog Devices AD5231 AD5232 AD8510
    Digital potentiometers are versatile devices; you can use them in many filtering and waveform-generation applications. This Design Idea describes an oscillator in which setting the resistance of two digital potentiometers independently programs the ...

  1. Circuits Oscillators Nexperia 74HCU04 74AHCU04
    You sometimes need an inexpensive VCO that can produce evenly spaced three-phase outputs over a wide frequency range. You could use tracking all-phase filters with only one oscillator, but this technique is difficult to implement and offers limited ...

  2. Deadband circuits find applications in servo-control systems. A precision current source and a half-wave inverting rectifier form a positive deadband circuit (Figure 1). The REF01 , IC 1 , is a precision 10 V voltage reference. It forms a precision ...

  4. A typical window comparator uses two comparators and a single op amp to determine whether a voltage is inside or outside a boundary region. Figure 1 shows a typical implementation. IC 1 is an inverting op amp with a gain of 1. V REF and V REF ...

  5. You use high-side current monitoring in many battery-powered products that require accurate monitoring of load current, charger current, or both. In applications for nonportable designs, high-side-current monitoring serves as a power-supply ...

  6. If you use a function generator, you may occasionally require a sine-wave output at a higher frequency than the generator can provide. If your function generator also produces a triangle-wave output, you can use a frequency doubler to extend the ...
