Here is new edition of Electronic Design magazine February 2014. In this issue, you can read latest news and technical information needed by electronic engineers and engineering managers through the magazine. Here are featured articles for this month.
Development Tools Move To The Cloud
Ubiquitous high-speed Internet access has radically increased the number of cloud-based apps available for smartphones, tablets, and PCs. Most of these apps are relatively simple compared to development tools, but tools have migrated to the cloud too. This approach offers many advantages and disadvantages for developers and vendors alike
Today’s Oscilloscopes Tackle Evolving Communications Standards
Oscilloscopes have grown beyond basic time-domain tools and are now available with many automatic functions to speed and simplify a wider range of measurements, with an eye on the growing range of wireless specifications.
Understanding Distributed Antenna Systems (DASs)
DAS technology has been around for more than 20 years. But now, the need to do more with fewer assets is driving innovation in DASs and optical networks.
Design Wideband RF Front Ends For GSPS Converters
Passive front ends are best for ADCs operating at gigasamples per second in today’s industrial applications.
Circuit Meets Challenges Of Fast, High-Current NiCd Charging
This simple circuit supports charging of NiCd cells at high rates (1C) while avoiding common problems caused by overheating or overcharging which can degrade performance and even damage the cells. The design uses low-cost thermistors and a non-critical, basic op amp, while the article explains how to calculate critical resistor values to match the cell or battery-pack size.
