Deminar: 3 Ways that Analog ICs Can Strengthen Your Design

I take nothing for granted—not my ability to do downward dog, my expertise in nanoPower technology…or analog ICs. Yes, those reliable building blocks are pretty useful in a design, aren’t they? How else would you ensure that your power supplies are on spec, or that the network nodes in your design can communicate without taxing the system microcontroller? By choosing the right analog ICs, you can finish your design stronger…and be the hero on your team.

My good friends at Maxim have been working hard preparing a deminar that promises to deepen your understanding of how analog ICs can make your design more robust. An online seminar + demos all in one hour-long session, "3 Ways that Analog ICs Can Strengthen Your Design" will cover

  • The basics of the CAN differential, the MAX13054A CAN transceiver's three modes of standby, and how its dominant timeout prevents bus lockup
  • The MAX16050, which monitors up to six voltages and sequences up to four voltages
  • A piezoresistive sensor example using the MAX40007 nanoPower op amp, with a spotlight on how the part’s low quiescent current (< 1µA) can preserve battery life for portable electronics

Sign up today for the analog ICs deminar, which happens at 10am PST on Wednesday, May 23 on a computer near you. And if you’re one of the first 300 people to register, you get to choose a free board from one of the three featured in the demos. Sweet deal, if you ask me.
