risks contingency plans
Risks & Contingency Plans
  • Learning to use DSP and ASIC chips
    • Use analog notch filters
  • Control block responding to incorrect signal
    • Build higher order filter / Use additional filters
    • Use different chip
  • Use of OP-AMP amplifier questionable
    • Use BJT or MOSFET transistors
    • Other amplifier ASICs
marketability
Marketability
