The internet got all kinds of angry at Apple recently. It turns out, Apple slows down the processor’s clock frequency on older iPhones. The internet took this as an opportunity to jump on “Evil Apple” for what it perceived as a marketing ploy to get people to upgrade. But, the internet was wrong.   As it turns out, this was simply a case of… (Show more)

Sniffing the airDogs do it all the time. But there is much more in the air than just smells. There are RF signals of all kinds all around us. How do we 'sniff' these signals out of the air so that we can observe them on an oscilloscope? Sniffing where you can’t probeProbing electrical voltage signals in a circuit is typically achieved using an… (Show more)

Written by David Liu Routine electrical tests are time-consuming Routine electrical tests can be mundane and quite time-consuming, especially when you’re required to repeat the same test procedure with just one or two parameter changes. Take the testing of a DC-DC converter, for example. In the diagram below, you’ll notice that setup requires a… (Show more)

Hey readers!   For today’s blog we decided to do something a bit different. I’m a big fan of the New York Times crossword puzzle (Monday record time 4m35s, let me know yours below) and thought this would be a fun way to share that with all of you. Grab a cup of coffee and give this puzzle a try! Let us know in the comments if you’d like to see… (Show more)

If you are dealing with more than a couple tens of amperes of AC current and want to make flexible current measurements, consider the Rogowski current probe.   A Rogowski coil is an electrical transducer used for measuring AC currents such as high-speed transients, pulsed currents of a power device, or power line sinusoidal currents at 50 or 60… (Show more)

To measure current with an oscilloscope, you have to use a current probe. The problem is, there are so many types of current probes available now, and it’s hard to know when to use what. When you think about current probing, there are three main categories that most applications fit into: High current General purpose Low current Each of the… (Show more)

Recently I was visiting the SIPI lab (Signal Integrity and Power Integrity) of a large corporation showing them how to make some solid power integrity measurements that they could trust (check out this application note if you’d like some tips). We had just finished making some ripple and noise measurements on one of the key supplies inside their… (Show more)
