T3 - Analog Design in a Digital Environment

Dennis Bohn, Rick Jeffs, & Paul Mathews, Rane Corporation - Mukilteo, WA, USA

This tutorial presents a fast-paced overview of the problems faced by an analog audio designer working in the mixed analog-digital environment found in most pro audio products. A typical mixed analog-digital audio product is examined with respect to the analog design elements necessary to maintain pristine audio performance while satisfying international EMC and safety compliance. Topics include how to bring in low-level signals, maintain fidelity and SNR, provide high gain and buffering, supply clean power, and deliver high quality signals on the output side, all within the context of a hostile environment both inside and outside the product housing. Examples of gotchas and do’s and don’ts in chassis design, circuit design, and circuit board layout highlight the session.
