The Next Wave of Computerization

IoT, FinFETs, and the Tools We Need

The air is a perfect 72 degrees. The water is calm for now, but breakers dot the horizon. The time for the next mondo wave isn’t here now, but it will be soon. In this week’s fish fry, we’re surfing our way to the next big computational wave with a little help from David Dutton (CEO – Silvaco) and Lisa Minwell from eSilicon. David and I discuss why we will see a lot more design requirements coming out of middle nodes, why on-board power will be more important than ever before, and a little bit about why our design tools will be the key to our future success in IoT. In the second half of our episode, Lisa Minwell and I chat about the components of a successful IP company and where 2.5D (and 2.1D) designs will find their foothold in the future.

How to Measure the Power Supply Rejection Ratio for LDOs

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

Noise on power supplies typically propagates to the output and is typically unwanted in applications like precision measurement and RF communication. LDOs reject AC noise based on their power-supply rejection ratio (PSRR). PSRR is a function of noise frequency and input-to-output voltage difference & its values are not consistently presented in manufacturers' data sheets. This app note shows the steps to determine the PSRR of Maxim's MAX38902A/B, equipping readers to perform their own PSRR measurements.
