What are the hardware latencies associated with PRU?

In this application report from Texas Instruments, the hardware latencies associated with PRU-initiated memory reads are explored. The PRU is a scalar processor, processing each instruction sequentially. With the exception of memory read instructions, all PRU instructions execute in a single cycle.

Automotive brushed DC motor driver with fault reporting

The DRV8872-Q1 device from Texas Instruments is a brushed DC (BDC) motor driver for infotainment, HUD projector adjustment, motorised shifter knobs, and piezo horn drivers. Two logic inputs control the H-bridge driver, which consists of four N-channel MOSFETs that provide bidirectional control of motors up to 3.6A peak current.

So tell me, what exactly are S-parameters anyway?

Modern high-speed analogue-to-digital converters (ADCs) have enabled the direct sampling of radio frequency (RF) signals, which in many cases eliminates the need for mixing stages while increasing system flexibility and capability. Traditionally, ADC signal and clock inputs have been represented by lumped element models. But for RF sampling converters, this approach is inadequate.
