AES Rome 2013
Monday, May 6, 12:30 — 13:30 (Sala Alighieri)
T13 - Designing for Ultra-Low THD+N in Analog CircuitsPresenter:
Bruce E. Hofer, Audio Precision
A number of factors influence the distortion performance of analog circuits. Among the most important is the quality of components. Models of non-linearity and techniques for estimating distortion and noise will be discussed along with some tips on minimizing their contributions. This presentation is an updated subset of the design track seminar titled “Designing Audio in the 2010s” that was presented at the 2011 New York AES convention. It contains some significant new material that should be of interest to the serious analog design engineer.
