For the love of data-converters


I have a good friend that uses the most loving expressions when describing IC design projects. Hopefully I will have him guest blogging here any time soon. Either way, this blog is for you if you are truly passionate about data-converter application and IC design or just want to find out if you can be someday. Even if you hate the very thought of it, but your boss still doesn’t let you move on to RF-IC or digital ASIC design, you will hopefully find some bits and pieces here that will make your working day more endurable.

Scanning the vast span of the blogosphere, I actually couldn’t find any blogs focusing entirely on analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters where like-minded professionals could meet and discuss technical and more light-hearted aspects of data converter design and application. If you find any, please post or send me links to them.

I did find blogs about old tools , knitting, German vases [by a good friend] and about collecting veteran tractors like the beautiful Minneapolis Moline [I actually have one of those in my barn]. But not even one ADC or DAC blog? I almost can’t believe it. In this day and age that must be close to sensational. Talk about being marginalized! 🙂

No more so. Welcome to share your Converter Passion here and now.
