ZMD AG introduced a class-leading 16-bit sensor signal conditioning IC (SSC). Developed for resistive bridge sensors, the ZSSC3017 combines high accuracy amplification, 16-bit precision analog-to-digital conversion, and an 18-bit DSP for linearization and calibration functions. The highly integrated CMOS device offers performance accurate enough for altimeter/barometer systems, data merging with GPS receivers, medical gas and […]
Randy Frank discusses differences in signal conditioning circuitry.
Austriamicrosystems has expanded its interface product portfolio with the AS1716, a sensor designed for interfacing to piezo electronic capacitive sensors. It operates from a single 4,5 V to 5,5 V supply and provides differential inputs, a first order low pass filter to cut off the high frequency noise components, differential to single ended conversion, programmable […]
