How to Estimate Voltage Spikes from Layout Parasitic Inductance in Switched-Mode Power Supplies 
We showed you how to deal with layout parasitic inductance in our previous video entitled “How to design DC-to-DC power converters”, but a frequently asked question was “When should I start to worry about layout parasitics inductance? Is there a quick rule of thumb that says kind of ‘Caution: Further investigation’s needed?’” The answer is yes and this follow up video is about how to make these estimates.

How to Match RF Impedance Effectively By Optimally Selecting SMT Devices 
This video demonstrates a very effective RF impedance matching methodology with SMT devices that helps RF engineers save time and cost. With this methodology, RF engineers can start to match the design with a list of good combinations of SMT devices which satisfies the target impedance and loss specifications instead of trying out unlimited possibilities at the workbench. This methodology should work very well with typical wireless or mobile product designs such as smart phones.
