  • Understanding MLX90614 On-Chip Digital Filters

    Posted Jan 26, 2015 By Melexis
    This application note presents the MLX90614 on-chip digital signal filters focusing on the on-chip signal-filtering feature part of the integrated circuit. It also describes the filter configuration with the EVB/SW90614, the two filters – FIR and IIR and the overall settling time of the two filters.
  • RS-485 COMMUNICATIONS MICRO PLC CARD

    Posted Jan 26, 2015 By Maxim
    Industry 4.0 marks the fourth industrial revolution, characterized by distributed, intelligent control systems. Breaking from a past with large, centralized programmable-logic controllers, Industry 4.0 allows for highly configurable, highly modular factories that accept an ever-increasing number of sensor inputs and operate at a higher output than before. The ultra-small PLC, or Micro PLC, lies...
  • Combining Capacitive Sensing and LED Lighting - Pt. 4

    Posted Jan 26, 2015 By EEWeb
    In the previous installment, we explored how to overcome common challenges faced when designing systems with capacitive sensing and LED lighting. This edition will address low-power design considerations for such applications. In order to optimize power consumption, capacitive sensors are typically scanned in a repeated scan-sleep-scan-sleep routine. The sensors are scanned at a specific...

  • Cost-effective IGBT Gate Drive Design

    Posted Jan 23, 2015 By Avago Technologies
    The ACPL-337J is an advanced highly integrated gate drive optocoupler, designed to ISOLATE, DRIVE, PROTECT and FEEDBACK the IGBT’s operational status. It has a rail-to-rail output that can deliver 4A of maximum current capable of driving high power IGBT directly. The integrated DESAT detection protects the IGBT during short circuit condition and the isolated feedback reports this fault to the...
  • Avago Optocouplers in Intrinsic Safety Applications

    Posted Jan 23, 2015 By Avago Technologies
    The IECEx is a certification system which verifies compliance with IEC international standards relating to equipment for use in explosive atmospheres. The safety requirement for equipment under IECEx is based on the description in the international standards IEC 60079 series. IEC 60079-11 specifies the construction and testing of intrinsically safe apparatus intended for use in an explosive...
  • Gate Drive Optocoupler w/ Integrated Flyback Controller

    Posted Jan 23, 2015 By Avago Technologies
    The new ACPL-302J is a smart gate drive optocoupler that improves isolated power supply and simplifies gate drive design. The ACPL-302J features an integrated flyback controller for DC-DC converters and a fullset of fail-safe IGBT diagnostics, protection, and fault reporting, providing a complete cost-eeffective gate drive solution (Figure 1). With a 2.5A rail-to-rail output, the device is ideal...
