ZMD offers smart sensor signal conditioner ICs for industrial pressure sensing applications
ZSSC3131, ZSSC3135, ZSSC3136 and ZSSC3138
ZMD has introduced four smart-sensor signal conditioner ICs that are designed for the signal conditioning of resistive-bridge sensing elements, such as silicon or ceramic-based piezo-resistive transducers or thin-/thick-film or gauge-type sensor elements.
The ZSSC3131, ZSSC3135, ZSSC3136 and ZSSC3138 are suitable for automotive and industrial pressure-sensing applications, such as HVAC, cooling, pneumatic brakes and other hydraulic systems.
According to the company, the different feature sets allow for applications including under and over pressure switches for hydraulic and pneumatic systems, as well as failsafe, SIL-compliant switches and high-accuracy pressure monitoring systems for HVAC and pneumatic brake applications.
Diagnostics functions range from a basic sensor connectivity check with the ZSSC3135 and ZSSC3138, to a complete set of SIL-compliant sensor diagnostics with the ZSSC3136.
ZMD has introduced two new ZLED low-voltage ICs, incorporating low-noise, constant-frequency charge pump DC/DC converters that can drive up to four (ZLED7012) or six (ZLED7022) strings of LEDs.
ZMD AG has introduced a 16-bit sensor signal-conditioning IC (SSC) that is suitable for altimeter/barometer systems, data merging with GPS receivers, medical gas and infusion pumps and robotics.
ZMD has launched the ZMD41211, a multifunction temperature logger and smart-label radio-frequency identification (RFID) integrated circuit (IC).
This application note from Linear Technology is a compendium of ‘power circuits’ from the first five years of Linear Technology, and contains circuits that can power almost any system you can imagine, from desktop computer systems to micropower systems for portable and handheld equipment. Also included here are circuits that provide 300W or more of power-factor-corrected DC from a universal input. Battery chargers are included, some that charge several battery types, some that are optimised ...
