I am not sure what circumstances you have in mind, but a lot of circuits have a voltage output so if you want an active load you cannot use a voltage load - the current would but infinite - only limited by spurious resistances. With a current load the power into the load will vary linearly with the output voltage. Another (...)

Post #7 reveals that there's some confusion involved with your problem specification.

This is your fundamental "box" for designing startup circuits.
The startup current needs to be large enough to boot the
loop in the worst case, and it needs to be low enough to
not bother the loop setpoint in the "best" case. PVT can
make this a thread-the-needle exercise especially if you
want to stay simple (like diode-steered resistor pullup)

U must not worry about high active load current. Why do you use active load ? Because u can not implement a big resistor in value with a small passive resistor (poly silicon) in dimention in dimension. This is a trade of. U earn in resistor value with small dimension. But u loss in power consumption.

It depends on what type of a diode you mean.
In most cases (rectifier, Zener, etc.) a diode is, no doubt, a passive device. Only in some special cases like with a tunnel diode, when its negative resistance region is used, it can be considered as an ACTIVE device.

This PMOS in LDO can be regarded as a pass transistor of a voltage-controlled current source.
As such, it is like having a load-insensitive (ideally) source resistance (which is a passive element but non-linear). Hence you can also regard this a passive.

Hi everyone. I have a question as follow:
It is well known that the lossy transmission line will induce non-negligible ISI effect on the transmitted digital signal. When a passive equalizer is employed, the ISI effect will be reduced, but inevitable DC-loss will lower the voltage level of signal. For example, the original voltage level is betwee

Did you try to connect the output directly to the 50 ohm input? If you fear to overload the output, place a series resistor. You didn't tell about required level of the 50 ohm signal, but I expect that you will able to use a passive resistor network and don't need a transistor amplifier stage. Otherwise use a common collector follower as buffer amp

I really doubt it will like a DC input. Often PC supplies these days have active or passive PFC built into them, so without an AC input they may not function at all. If this is not the case, and the PC supply just has a rectifier first and then an offline SMPS, then it might work. As for the voltage rating... hard to tell without knowing exactly

The choice of a capacitor in parallel with a battery depends on the capacitor having a lower impedance than the battery.
I think there may be semantic differences in describing voltage noise.
Inductance can cause voltage spikes with rapid chanes in current, and a capacaitor with low ESR, low SRF value will help greatly reduce by the spike current

You should use thermistors (and not varistors as someone suggested. Those are for overvoltage protection). There are 2 kinds NTC (negative temperature coefficient) which means that as the temperature goes up the resistance goes down, and PTC (positive temperature coefficient) where the resistance goes up with temperature. They are cheap, they come
