100% citation boost

Nice! Converter Passion just had a 100% boost in scientific citations (known to us) thanks to the tutorial “Time-Interleaved ADCs: Theory and Design” given tomorrow, June 17th, at NEWCAS 2012 by Manar El-Chammas from Texas Instruments, Inc., Dallas, TX.

When we went from zero to one citation I promised to make a list of citations as soon as we reached two, and that list is now found here.

Unfortunately I’ll not make it to NEWCAS 2012, but Converter Passion wishes Dr. El-Chammas and all other conference delegates a really good time there.

Converter Passion Citation Boost

Stuff like this makes a tech-blogging nerd happy …

A very pleasant recent observation is that this blogs scientific citation frequency just improved by ∞ % (from zero to one), thanks to an IWADC paper [1] referring to a Converter Passion post [2]. It may be a humble start, but it was good news to see that someone out there trusts the data on this blog enough to include it as a reference in a scientific publication. To the best of my knowledge that was a first for Converter Passion, but let me know if you get a paper published that cites Converter Passion. Should it become a trend, I might have to compile a list of citations here, but I’ll wait until we have at least two … 😉

Update: Now there are more than one, so I’ve now added a citation list.
