CEITEC, a Brazilian company that develops and produces application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) today announced the final development phase of a new integrated circuit (IC) for multiple logistics applications
As applications engineers supporting ADI’s compact, low-cost, gravity-sensitive iMEMs accelerometers, we get to hear lots of creative ideas about how to employ accelerometers in useful ways; but sometimes the suggestions violate physical laws! We’ve rated some of these ideas on an informal scale, from “real” to “dream land”:
With the industrial and instrumentation market becoming more competitive, circuit designers continually face new challenges to design products faster, with fewer iterations, and incorporating a wider range of mixed-signal technologies including analog, digital, power, and RF. In addressing these challenges, reference circuits provide
