Driving the Future of Automotive Infotainment with Noise Resilient Audio Converters
F. Viemon, H. KUO

The automotive market is driven in recent years by new consumer expectations. Ahead of them, the daily in-vehicle entertainment and connectivity experience, namely automotive infotainment, is becoming as important as traditional criteria: engine performance, safety and look of the vehicle. Automotive infotainment refers to the hardware/software system combining multimedia entertainment (e.g. radio, CD/DVD for audio …

Setup/hold interdependence in the pulsed latch (Spinner cell)

Introduction The frequency of the very large Systems-on-Chip continuously increases over the years. Operating frequencies of up to 1 GHz are common in modern deep sub-micrometer application specific integrated circuits. The verification of timing in VLSI circuits is achieved by means of static timing analysis (STA) tools which rely on data described in the cell …

Small Signal Simulation in the s-Plane
EDN
F.Poullet, G.Depeyrot, F.Espalieu

Small Signal Simulation in the s-Plane Frédéric Poullet, Gilles Depeyrot, Florian Espalieu In analog circuit design, small-signal analysis is one of the first steps for studying the stability of the circuit or obtaining the transfer function (voltage gain, trans-impedance, power rejection, etc.). This analysis linearizes all of the non-linear devices in the circuit; the resultant …
