Product of the Month: First Inductance-to-Digital Converter
Posted in Products, Manufacturing & Prototyping, Electronics, Electronic Components, Power Management, Medical, MDB on Friday, 01 November 2013
Texas Instruments, Dallas, TX, unveiled the industry’s first inductance-to-digital converter (LDC), a new data converter category that uses coils and springs as inductive sensors to deliver higher resolution, increased reliability, and greater flexibility than existing sensing solutions at a lower system cost. Inductive sensing is a contactless sensing technology that can be used to measure the position, motion, or composition of a metal or conductive target, as well as detect the compression, extension, or twist of a spring. Applications for inductive sensing range from simple push buttons, knobs, and on/off switches to high-resolution heart rate monitors, flow meters, and high-speed motor/gear controllers.
