The ZSSC3170KIT Evaluation Kit provides the hardware needed for configuration, calibration and evaluation of the ZSSC3170 Sensor Signal Conditioner (SSC) IC. The user's PC can communicate with the ZSSC3170 IC socketed on the ZSSC3170 SSC Evaluation Board via the SSC Communication Board through a USB connection. The Evaluation Kit Software is available on-line for free download.
The Evaluation Board can connect to the user's sensor or to the SSC Sensor Replacement Board (SRB). The SRB provides a replacement for an actual sensor and can be used for the first step of calibration or a dry-run calibration. On the SRB, the simulated resistive sensor signal is controlled by a potentiometer. The kit also includes the small unpopulated Test Board for facilitating user prototypes.
For further information and support for the SSC Communication Board, visit the SSC-CB product page.
Boards can also be ordered separately. To enable product comparisons, this modular kit is compatible with other select Renesas devices. Contact your local sales representative for more information.
A brief introduction and overview of IDT's sensor signal conditioner evaluation kits. Evaluation kits generally consist of three parts: a communication interface board, a device board, and a sensor simulator board - all connected together. A sophisticated software GUI accompanies the kit, enabling an engineer to learn how to use the part rapidly, do quick prototyping, and practice calibrations.
