Ultrasonic sensing techniques have been popular in smart water meters because the technology avoids any moving parts which are prone to degrade over the lifetime of the product. The MSP430FR6047 microcontroller (MCU) family takes ultrasonic sensing solutions to next level of performance delivering <25ps of accuracy, detection of low flow rates <1 liter/hour and high precision of <5ps.
FPD-Link™ Learning Center is a comprehensive online classroom for system designers integrating FPD-Link™ serializer/deserializer technology into their ADAS or Infotainment applications.

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.
