Analog Design Secrets Your Mother Never Told You
As the performance of modern digital audio technology surpasses the range of human hearing, the weak links in the signal chain are often found in the analog domain. For example, the 120-dB dynamic range achievable by a modern A/D converter is sacrificed when it is fed a noisy signal from a poorly balanced input with insufficient common mode rejection. Thus, in order to achieve the best possible performance at the lowest possible cost, it is important that designers employ good analog engineering practices. This seminar will provide tips and techniques to achieve optimal performance in the analog signal path. Topics to be covered will range from inputs (balanced line and mic level) to outputs (balanced to single-ended), and will include analog signal processing (VCAs, RMS detection, and Analog Engines). The presenters are analog IC design experts from THAT Corporation, the world’s only semiconductor foundry specializing exclusively in pro audio ICs.
