Determining poles and zeros from those of interconnected two-port networks

My goal is to find the poles and zeros of a large network. Specifically a cascade connection of series C's and shunt L's. One could also consider this a CL Ladder circuit. I am interested in ...

What is the point of this resistor network?

What is the purpose of this resistor network? Why not just use one resistor? or connect the cathode of RA93 diode directly to the mosfet drain (this mosfet is high side of the h-bridge). It seems to ...

Any way to build Analogue Multiplexers using MOSFETs or JFETs or BJTs

Here's my requirement: I need an analogue switch that can do SPST/DPST/DPDT with very low On-Resistance (<10mOhms). There would be current flowing through this switch, albeit in the range of a <...

Using resistor networks as voltage ladder

Are there resistor networks which could function as a pre-made voltage ladder? In other words are there variations on how the resistor network is assembled, ie in series or parallel? I've found these ...
