Automotive applications for low-cost sensor networking can be addressed with the SAE J2716 SENT (Single Edge Nibble Transmission) protocol. The point-to-point network approach transmits signal values from a sensor to a microcontroller or digital signal processor. At the same time, many automotive safety applications are requiring automotive safety integrity level (ASIL) qualification. To address these […]
Designed for low-power operation, ZMDI’s ZSSC3123 complements the small size and lower power consumption capabilities of capacitive sensors. The chip delivers 14-bit resolution and 0.25 % accuracy over a wide range of sensor capacitances and temperatures. Operating power consumption is 60 µA with a sleep mode to lower to less than 1µA. The IC has […]
If you have found the right pressure sensor for your application but it needs addition signal conditioning, the ZMDI ZSSC3008 may solve your problem. The first requirement is a pressure sensor with an intrinsically low temperature coefficient (TC). If that’s the case, the rest of the IC’s features come into play. These features include offset […]
ZMDI’s ZSSC3122 is capacitive sensor signal conditioner with wide-dynamic-range and low power consumption. The chip delivers 14-bit resolution and 0.25% full-scale-output accuracy. The signal conditioning circuit has an operating current as low as 60 µA over the entire voltage range of 1.8V to 5.5V. A built-in sleep mode lowers current consumption to <1 µA for […]
Depending on the system, different sensor interfaces are required. For example, in automotive applications, Controller Area Network (CAN) or Local Interconnect Network (LIN) are common networks for communicating sensor data. However, the SAE J2716 SENT (for Single Edge Nibble Transmission) protocol has been developed and companies have started to introduce products that meet it. In […]
