NJU9103 High-Precision Analog Front-End with Configurable Microcontroller for Sensor Signal Processing

  Rutronik

NJRC has developed the new NJU9103 analog front-end (AFE) with built-in PGA that can be used to process analog signals with an amplification of G-512. Not only does the NJU9103 have a wide input range, but it also has very compact dimensions (only 8 pins). In addition, it has an integrated 16-bit ΔΣ type A/D converter with sampling rates from 0.814ksps to 6.51ksps, and the ability to select between...

Fuse protection for up to 48V electrical systems in vehicles

  Knowledge

Due to the acceleration in the electrification of cars, the 12V electrical system is reaching its limits, since an increasing number of mechanical functions are being performed electrically. A 48V sub-electrical system powers high performance consumers. New concepts are therefore required for fuse protection. BOSCH Semiconductors is busy working on the development of an IC for protecting 12V…48V electrical...
