ZMDI Releases the ZSSC416x Sensor Signal Conditioner Family Combining High-Accuracy Amplification, 16-Bit Precision and SENT 3.0 Output with Optimized Support for ASIL B Applications

DRESDEN, GERMANY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/04/14 -- Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.

ZMD AG (ZMDI), a Dresden-based semiconductor company that specializes in enabling energy-efficient solutions, today announces the ZSSC416x, the first in ZMDI's series of next generation of sensor signal conditioners. As a global supplier of analog and mixed-signal solutions for automotive, industrial, medical, information technology and consumer applications, ZMDI is pleased to introduce a state-of-the-art sensor signal conditioning family capable of measuring single, dual or differential bridge inputs and internal or external temperature sensors. With a wide analog pre-amplification range, the ZSSC416x family is capable of highly accurate amplification and sensor-specific correction for most resistive bridge sensors as well as thermocouple readings. Measured values are provided via the digital SENT 3.0 output or I2C™ (trademark of NXP).

"The ZSSC416x is the first series of products from ZMDI's Next Generation Sensor Signal Conditioner Family designed for ease of integration into our customers' sensor platforms without sacrificing the performance and flexibility needed for the lowest possible system costs," stated Steve Ramdin, Global Product Line Manager for Multi Market Sensor Platforms at ZMDI. In addition to the highest proven performance needed for future products, ZMDI's Next Generation Sensor Signal Conditioner Family ICs offer customers ease of use with a wide range of predefined signal processing configurations and flexible input pin selection for quick integration in a wide variety of applications. Mr. Ramdin added, "Our goal is to make it easy for our customers to build flexible sensor platforms, quickly and at the lowest possible system costs."

Features


--  Full SENT Rev 3.0 compliance
--  Two full bridge sensor inputs; configurable for single, dual or
    differential measurements
--  Internal and external temperature sensing
--  Supply voltage range: 4.75V to 5.25V
--  Overvoltage protection to +/- 18V
--  ADC resolution: 12 to 18 bit
--  Output resolution: 12 bit via SENT and up to 16 bit for I2C™
--  Designed for ASIL B requirements in safety-relevant applications

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.
Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems.
