Circuit Centre – Process Control

p10_ProcessControl_thumb1

The microcontroller takes centre stage in the block diagram for a typical process-control application, and it is microcontrollers which are featured in the Application Spotlight section that follows. But the block diagram also highlights the many peripheral functions that support a process-control system, including analogue, communications and protection components, and these can all be found […]

Intersil – ISL26132 and ISL26134 24-bit delta-sigma ADCs feature low-noise output

p14_Intersil_thumb1

ADCs The ISL26132 and ISL26134 from Intersil are complete analogue front-ends for high-resolution measurement applications. These 24-bit delta-sigma ADCs include a very low-noise amplifier and are available with either two (ISL26132) or four (ISL26134) differential multiplexer inputs. The devices offer the same pin-out as the ADS1232 and ADS1234 devices and are functionally compatible with these […]
