Energy consumption is critical for battery-powered, connected devices. While many embedded systems developers are well versed in optimizing code, conserving energy for Internet of things (IoT) devices requires a more comprehensive approach.
The LTC2358 octal ADC adds FET-input analog buffers to the performance and flexibility of the LTC2348. These buffers allow the signal conditioning to be designed around the needs of the signal, rather than the needs of the ADC.
Solid-state lighting, predominantly in the form of semiconductor-based LEDs, continues to supplant conventional and less energy efficient forms of lighting such as incandescent, compact fluorescent and gas discharge lamps.
The 2.4 GHz, 802.15.4/Proprietary Wireless Transceiver PMOD board (EVAL-ADF7242-PMDZ) is designed to support RF to FPGA or processor applications system that utilizes PMOD-compatible expansion ports configurable for SPI communication (PACKET MODE).
Galvanic (ohmic) isolation between the sensor and the rest of the electronics is critical for signal integrity, system protection, and user safety, but designers have to pick from three main isolation technologies: magnetic, optical, and capacitive barriers.
Demonstration circuit 2641A is a single output synchronous buck converter featuring the LTC7801EUFD in the 24-lead QFN package. The input voltage range is from 16 V to 100 V and the output is 12 V/10 A.
The core of most maker projects is digital, but sensors tend to be analog devices that require signal processing to interface with the processor analog inputs. Issues of low signal amplitude, offset voltages, or interfering signals can complicate a maker’s design processor.
