With up to 24 bits analog-to-digital conversion (ADC) resolution, a flexible sensor front end and a broad range of output interfaces, the ZSSC3240 can be used for nearly all types of resistive and absolute voltage sensor elements, enabling customers to develop complete sensing platforms from a single SSC device.
Micro-machined and silicon-based sensing elements provide mostly non-linear and very small signals, requiring special technologies to convert the sensor signal into a linearized output. The ZSSC3240 SSC facilitates both the design and production of sensor interfaces by providing programmable, highly accurate, wide gain and quantization functions combined with powerful, high-order digital correction and linearization algorithms.
The device has a high-gain analog front end supporting up to 540 volt per volt (V/V). It features an integrated 26-bit DSP for high-precision sensor calibration. The ZSSC3240 SSC is available now in a 4x4mm, 24-lead QFN package.
