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...

Light in the dark

  Knowledge

A new hybrid LED solves the traditional problems of automotive lighting: It avoids dazzling oncoming traffic while ensuring ideal illumination of the road ahead. The high resolution of over 1000 fully electronically controlled LED pixels allows extremely differentiated, active and, therefore, efficient light distribution.
