High Speed Signal Chain University is your portal to relevant training material on High Speed Data Converters and High Speed Amplifiers including topics related to RF Sampling Converters, JESD204B SerDes standard, and RF Fundamentals.
The Getting Started with Current Sense Amplifiers series helps engineers learn how to maximize the performance achieved when measuring current with a current sense amplifier (also called a current shunt monitor).
This is a series of short videos, each addressing a different topic. While intended as a series to be viewed in order, each session is stand-alone and can be viewed without the need to watch it all if there is a specific topic you are interested in learning more about.
This training series demonstrates the usage of TINA-TI, the free SPICE simulator from Texas Instruments. The course has 12 videos, beginning with an introduction and showing the basic usage of the GUI and the simulator. The course shows several examples of the basic features and some of the more complex features that TINA-TI provides. Additionally, the course shows several practical applications of the tool and how it can be used to solve engineering problems.

This training series discusses the key requirements of local oscillator in microwave/RF and GHz clocks in radio applications. The topics covered establish the key relationships between the requirements of a signal source and their impact in a radio system. After this training, you will be armed with the ability to understand the system requirements of your customer and how they pertain to a signal source so you can engage with your customer in a very meaningful way.
Delta-sigma analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) are oversampling converters typically used in applications requiring higher resolution. However, ADCs do not work by themselves. In fact, they require several key components around them, including a front-end amplifier, a voltage reference, a clock source, power supplies, and a good layout. Many devices integrate these features together with the ADC to offer a complete system solution, which simplifies the design for customers and minimizes board space.
Mitigating switching regulator EMI and noise is seen by engineers as a black art. Mess with the feng shui of the PCB layout too much, and the system may not pass CISPR standards. Because of this, many power designers simply turn to linear regulators as a guaranteed way to avoid the headache of reducing emissions.
Applications Engineer Jason Tao discusses PFC basics, topology comparisons and design considerations to achieve a cost-optimized and efficient PFC design.
