Embedded Technology magazine features board-level electronics and COTS solutions for design engineers, as well as a variety of product offerings. The January issue of Embedded Technology contains a feature story on “Sensor Interface Design Demystified.” In this article, Dr. Kevin A. Shaw, director of business at Sensor Platforms Inc. (San Jose, CA) discusses, in light of the growth of MEMS (mircoelectromechanical systems), the considerations needed to be taken in sensor interface design. The designer must take into account smaller signals and application in order to develop the proper sensor, and the pit-falls involved. This article covers some of the basics of sensor interface design and gives an overview to the challenges and trade-offs of the possible approaches.
