It can be a maddening (and time-consuming) task to compare data across vendors to get a real comparison between possible solutions. Between “marketesse” and just plain deception and/or errors, how can you see through these and normalize critical specs across vendors to get real comparisons.

Having contributed to the development and product launch of over 150 high-speed amplifiers from 1985 forward, the level of detail and tradeoffs going into product datasheets and simulation models probably exceeds the wildest imaginings of the end-system designers. Here you will learn some of the hidden background for (and often confusing) specifications along with what to look out for in characterization curves and vendor simulation models.
