Norwood, MA (04/05/2011) - Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), a world leader in semiconductors for high-performance signal processing applications, will broadcast Understanding Sampled Data Systems - Part One webcast on April 13, 2011, at 12:00 pm EST. This 60-minute webcast begins a three-part series focusing on the most critical component in modern signal processing circuits, the data converter, which is responsible for converting analog electrical signals into digital signals, which can then be analyzed and manipulated by DSP, microcontrollers, and other embedded processors.
Before using data converters, designers need to understand the fundamentals of sampled data systems, unipolar and bipolar codes, transfer functions, Nyquist theory, and filters. In this first session, these considerations in data conversion, among others, will be discussed. The May webcast will focus on Digital-to-Analog converters, and the June webcast will focus on Analog-to-Digital converters.
Engineers and students new to the field, as well as those more experienced engineers looking for a refresher on converter specifications and selection, will find this webcast very useful.
David Kress, Director of Technical Marketing, Analog Devices, Inc. is a veteran analog applications engineer with over 30 years of experience in the industry.
Register for ADI's "Understanding Sampled Data Systems - Part One" webcast, airing April 13, noon EST at www.analog.com/PR_FUN_DATASAMPLE.
Throughout 2011, Analog Devices is presenting the “Fundamentals of Designing with Semiconductors For Signal Processing Applications,” a monthly webcast series that guides participants through each stage of the basic signal chain, from amplifiers to data converters – those components that convert the analog electronic signal into a digital stream – then to the heart of many modern circuits, the digital processor, and then back to the analog domain. The series also covers what is needed to power today’s circuits, how to make them portable, how to lay them out, as well as provide an introduction to design tools, tips and techniques that help solve design challenges quickly. Each webcast is followed by a Q&A with a technical expert. To learn more about ADI’s online training resources for a variety of design needs, visit http://www.analog.com/pr/webcasts.
