The ZSSC3154 Sensor Signal Conditioner (SSC) is optimized for resistive bridge sensor measurements commonly used in air flow sensing applications. To expedite the design of these applications, IDT provides the ZSSC3154 Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor Board for optional use with the ZSSC3154 Evaluation Kit (ordered separately). The MAF Sensor Board is used in place of the kit’s Sensor Replacement Board and demonstrates a basic hot-film flow measurement. The ZSSC3154 is installed in a socket on the kit’s ZSSC3154 Evaluation Board. The kit’s ZSSC3154 Evaluation Software provides a graphical user interface for configuring and calibrating the ZSSC3154 as well as taking sensor measurements and reading registers.
The MAF Sensor Board includes the FS2 Flow Channel Sensor by IST AG, which consists of four temperature-dependent platinum-resistors, all on-chip. Flow direction can also be detected with the FS2 sensors aligned in series to the flow.
To measure higher mass flow volumes, an optional on-board constant temperature anemometer (CTA) can be used.
