App note: Flash analysis techniques and best practices

App note from Infineon on the basics of flash memories and their failure analysis recommendations. Link here (PDF) Nonvolatile memory devices (like Flash) are often used in embedded applications that rely on the storage of system configuration, dynamic data, or both. This data needs to be retained during a power interrupt or power cycle. In […]

App note: Designing with cypress quad SPI (QSPI) F-RAMâ„¢

App note from Infineon about quad SPI, an enhanced SPI protocol that provides four times data throughput at higher frequencies. Link here (PDF) In order to manage the wide range of multimedia, graphics, and other data intensive content, embedded systems have evolved to offer more sophisticated features. These features place extra demands on the often-limited […]

App note: Measuring liquid levels using hall effect sensors

App note from Infineon on methods used in liquid level measurement and how contactless hall effect sensors are the right choice for the job. Link here (PDF) This application note is dedicated to liquid level sensing using non-contacting magnetic sensor technology. First, an overview of some liquid level sensor application requirements are given. Next, we […]
