Simulation of Temperature Sensors - Developing a digital thermometer faster and easier

Created by Alain Stas, Product Marketing Engineer for Non-Linear Resistors, Vishay | Co-author: Bert Weiss, Technical Support Resistors, Rutronik |   Knowledge

Patients, Sunday roasts, shower or aquarium water – their temperature is increasingly measured using digital thermometers instead of analog ones. The choice of temperature sensor is decisive for their development. A free simulation program makes this task much easier, while helping to save time and money.

MPU & Memory - A perfect couple

Created by Isabell Weinlein, Product Sales Manager Memories and Zibo Su, Product Sales Manager (jun.) Microcontrollers |   Knowledge

The demands placed by the market on visualization applications are forever increasing. The trend is moving away from microcontrollers toward high-performance microprocessors. The RZ/A and RZ/G series from Renesas are optimized for visualization applications. However, since the blocks are not equipped with a program memory, they require external memory media. But which processor suits which memory best?

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

Created by Qi Zhang, Technical Support Engineer at Rutronik |   Knowledge

With the NJU9103, NJRC has developed a new analog front end (AFE) with integrated PGA that can be used to process analog signals with a gain of G-512. By combining the NJU9103 with an STM32F429 microcontroller from STMicroelectronics, a budget sensor signal processing system can be assembled with relative ease. The arrangement works much like an oscilloscope, but can also output additional information on...
