By understanding noise issues in your designs, you can identify Intersil products that can reduce noise and improve performance.
In this on-demand webinar you'll learn 3 things:
- What noise is and how it's specified at the component level
- How this noise affects the performance of a signal chain
- How to select components based on signal chain requirements

Intersil's Thermal Noise Calculator (TNC) and Effective Number of Bits (ENOB) Calculator help analyze noise that is present in semiconductor devices as well as noise due to signal processing in data converters.
Using the calculators, you can enter or find all parameters. The calculators also offer indication of consistent parameters, validation to prevent illegal entries, and import, export and graphing functionality.
