The latest issue of AudioDesignLine contains two articles that might be of interest to radio amateurs:
- Resistors: Strengths and weaknesses of common types discusses wirewound, thin film, thick film, and metal foil resistors. The discussion focuses on chip resistors, but a lot of the discussion also applies to through-hole components.
- Bridging the Divide (Part 1): DAC Introduction covers basic DAC operation and key definitions, along with common DAC topologies. Parts 2 and 3 will discuss implementation, errors and noise, and applications.
