I working on a design where there will be some five sigma-delta ADCs and several specific level detect inputs each using an LVDS input pair as a comparator. So I'm pretty committed to this working. The LVDS common mode range can work down to 50 mV and I"ll be testing that. I need to sense the voltage across a FET in an H bridge for over current or open load. The ADCs need to have decen...

I don't know why I thought it would be easy. The arithmetic is not so hard by itself. But changing all the equations to normalize the variables is not so easy. Then there is the issue of needing to assure the results don't grow out of range and I hadn't even given thought to the need for saturating arithmetic in some cases. I'm designing a fixed point math engine to do modera

OK, pointy-haired boss question. Given a ZYNQ 7020, speed grade 1. A 3.3 volt i/o bank gets a clock from an LVDS input. We have a resync flop in an i/o cell, clocked by this, with a D input from somewhere. Output is the strongest/fastest 3.3 volt option. About what would be the typical prop delay from the clock to the output pin? Online search yields a lot of words and no numbers. Exp...
