Provide powerful input overvoltage protection for amplifier analog input module

Provide powerful input overvoltage protection for amplifier analog input module

[Guide]A key subsystem in the programmable logic controller is the analog input module, which provides a high-precision front end to measure various sensors. However, in many cases, the amplifier input stage is connected to a remote sensor through a long cable and is susceptible to overvoltage conditions. In this article, I will introduce the basic concepts of operational amplifier (op-amp) […]

Slow rising edge signal of EMC immunity

Slow rising edge signal of EMC immunity

“In EMC design and processing, engineers pay attention to rapidly changing signals, because the rising edge time of these signals is very short. From the perspective of spectrum analysis, there will be more high-frequency harmonics in the signal, leading to EMC design Becomes difficult. Moreover, the fast rising edge signal makes the problems of reflection, crosstalk, electromagnetic radiation, and ground […]
