Without sensors, there can be no Internet of Things (IoT). The fact that they require power is often overlooked. Not much, mind you – but they cannot work without it. The latest switching regulators allow sensors to be powered for much longer using batteries. Even from a 4–20mA current loop, it is possible to produce three times as much power.
NJU9103 is an Analog Front End (AFE) with an integrated PGA (Programmable Gain Amplifier) that can be used to process analog signals with an amplification of G-512. Being able to configure the front end with a microcontroller via a serial peripheral interface ensures an array of
An ever-increasing number of safety and comfort features in automotive applications are equipped with an electric actuator. This has also led to a rise in the number of low-power motors. A highly integrated motor controller IC from Micronas for all of these automotive motors is now available.
Intel® developed a new form factor class with the primary use-case target towards data centers - the "Ruler" also known as Enterprise & Datacenter Storage Form Factor (EDSFF). The "Ruler" form factor was designed to fully optimize rack efficiency while at the same time offer a solution that deals effectively with the data-centric world.
