  • Homebrew loop gain test transformer (EDN News)
    <p>You can purchase test equipment that will allow you to examine the loop gain and loop phase properties of an operating feedback loop and, that purchased equipment will deliver useful results over a very wide range of frequencies. However, the feedback loops in the power supplies I&#8217;ve encountered only needed to be characterized over fairly limited frequency ranges. That being the case, going &#8220;homebrew&#8221; with some low-cost components worked out quite well.</p> <p>Loop gain and ...

  • Software development model for the ISO/SAE 21434 standard (EDN News)
    <p>In the functional safety world, once a system is developed, it remains protected as long as the system is in service. In contrast, the security world demands that software must continue to defend a system against constantly evolving methods of attack long after a product is released. With the explosion in demand for in-vehicle connectivity, non-critical systems such as entertainment now share the same communications infrastructure as critical steering, braking and control systems, driving aut...
