Extend Battery Life and Simplify Calibration in Gas Sensing Applications

In a carbon monoxide (CO) gas sensing application, a gas sensor node must continuously monitor the CO gas concentration and generate an alarm if the concentration exceeds a given limit...

Low-Side Current Sense Circuit Integration

Discrete implementations of current sense amplifiers are commonly used for low side current sensing applications. Low-side current sensing is when the voltage is measured across a sense resistor that is...

Integrated, Current Sensing Analog-to-Digital Converter

The signal chain path for measuring current is typically consistent from system to system. Whether current is measured in a computer, automobile or motor, the common functional blocks used...

Design Guidelines for Capacitive Sensing

This application note describes the layout and physical design guidelines used for the capacitive sensing solution proposed in AN1101 Introduction to Capacitive Sensing. The layout and physical design of your...

Amplifying High-Impedance Sensors

Embedded systems contain many types of sensors, used to sense events in the real world. They can be classified according to the role they play in the analog conditioning circuitry...

Distributed Temperature Sensing

Systems with multiple "hot spots" often require several temperature sensors or temperature switches. This application note discusses the use of temperature sensors with analog, digital, and PWM interfaces in such...
