Q5 Interview – Matt Johnson, Fairchild Semiconductor
The latest Q5 interview is now online, with the vp of Signal Path products at Fairchild Semiconductor.
Matt Johnson talks analogue ICs. We ask him about the trend for power efficient design, how high speed serial interface standards – such as uSerdes and USB2.0 – impact signal path design, and analogue chip firm recoveries.
The five questions this week are:
1. How is the trend for more power efficient design influencing the selection and use of analogue ICs by your customers?
2. What developments in signal path ICs such as DACs, filters, amps and switches improve power efficiency?
3. How are high speed serial interface standards such as uSerdes and USB2.0 impacting signal path design?
