First MEMS Accelerometer with Min/Max Offset Sensitivity to Temperature Enables Predictable and Quantifiable Performance


NORWOOD, Mass. - Analog Devices, Inc. has introduced the industry’s first MEMS accelerometer with Min/Max offset sensitivity over the full temperature range. The ADXL350 3-axis MEMS accelerometer has maximum offset temperature sensitivity of ±0.31 mg/°C on the X/Y axes and ±0.49 mg/°C on the Z axis, guaranteeing predictable and quantifiable performance across the full temperature range of −40 °C to +85 °C. MEMS accelerometers on the market today specify only typical offset sensitivity to temperature, requiring calibration over temperature to maintain accurate sensor readings. The ADXL350 Min/Max offset sensitivity to temperature specifications guarantee known, quantifiable offset sensor measurements even in applications that are subjected to a wide temperature range. Additionally, the ADXL350 offers low noise density enabling designers to obtain valid measurements from applications with a low noise floor ...

Single-Chip RTD-to-Digital Converter Reduces Integration Costs by 50 %


PLANEGG, Germany – Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. announces the industry’s first fully integrated RTD-to-digital converter, a single-chip solution that replaces several discrete components to lower costs by up to 50 %. The MAX31865 offers simple and accurate measurement of temperature, the most commonly measured physical quantity in the industrial space, making it ideal for use in measurement and process control applications. Until now, there was no single-chip resistance temperature detector (RTD) digitizer on the market. The MAX31865 simply and elegantly solves the common industrial design problem of digitizing a platinum RTD (such as a Pt100 or Pt1000) resistance, protects against ±50 V input overvoltages, and detects sensor and cable faults. In addition, the device simplifies resistance measurement by eliminating the precisely matched current sources used for 3-wire sensor connections in conventional designs. The built-in overvoltage protection (OVP) also eliminates the need for external protection circuitry, which lowers cost, reduces board space, and increases factory uptime ...
