Batteries are used to ensure that critical electrical equipment is always on. There are so many places where batteries are used — it is nearly impossible to list them all. There are three main reasons to test battery systems: to insure the supported equipment is adequately backed-up; to prevent unexpected failures by tracking the battery’s health; and to forewarn/predict death.
This application note is the fourth in a series that excerpts useful circuits from Linear Technology magazine to preserve them for posterity; this one highlights ‘power’ circuits from issue VI:1 (February 1996) through issue VIII:4 (November 1998).
This white paper from Amplicon explains in detail the PXI architecture and discusses the benefits that PXI systems present in a variety of industrial applications. PXI — which stands for PCI Extensions for Instrumentation — is a rugged modular test platform specifically designed to allow for flexible, fast multiple instrument synchronised measurements in a reduced footprint compared with the more usual ‘rack and stack’ instruments.
In an increasing trend, telecommunications, networking, audio and instrumentation require low-noise power supplies. In particular, there is interest in low-noise, low-dropout (LDO) linear regulators. These components power noise-sensitive circuitry, circuitry that contains noise-sensitive elements or both. Additionally, to conserve power, particularly in battery-driven apparatus such as cellular telephones, the regulators must operate with low-input-to-output voltages.
The liquid crystal display (LCD) has become ubiquitous. It is in use everywhere, from personal computers of all sizes to point-of-sale terminals as well as instruments, autos and medical apparatus. The LCD utilises a cold cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL) as a light source to backlight the display. The CCFL requires a high-voltage AC supply for operation. Typically, more than 1,000VRMS is required to initiate lamp operation, with sustaining voltages ranging from 200VAC to 800VAC.
The developments in new optical sensing techniques discussed in this white paper from Michell Instruments show how increased sensitivity in detection limits in optical sensing methods — including both chilled mirror for hydrocarbon dew point and laser spectroscopy for moisture measurements — will help processors to meet international standards.
This application note from Linear Technology is intended to educate users on several topics associated with delta-sigma converters and to dispel confusion associated with this one-shot — or no-latency DSTM — architecture. The key topics addressed include speed, noise, PGAs, line frequency, rejection, input current, multiplexing, analogue input range and key features differentiating the LTC2400 from other delta-sigma ADCs.
This application note from Linear Technology discusses circuitry for signal conditioning and power conversion. This includes data converters and signal conditioners, transducer circuits, oscillators and power converters.
