Buck Converter Concepts Part 2 of 3: LC Low Pass Filters

The LC low pass filter has just two components: an inductor and a capacitor. The inductor and capacitor are connected in series. The input to the filter is fed into the inductor, the output is...


Buck Converter Concepts Part 1 of 3: Frequency Content of Square Waves

Take a square wave with a duty cycle of 0<x<1, a frequency of f, and an amplitude of A. (The minimum value of this square wave is 0.) This signal can be decomposed into its frequency components by...


PRBS (Pseudo-Random Binary Sequence)

In my line of work as a semiconductor test engineer, pseudo-random binary/bit sequences are very useful. They're random-ish streams of bits that can be easily and reliably reproduced using very...


Verilog-AMS: A Personal Reference

In my current role as a design verification engineer, I’m learning Verilog-AMS. I decided to make some notes as I go as a reference for myself. There may be errors in this document; I’m not a...
