Overview

The ZSSC3135 is a member of the ZSSC313x product family of CMOS integrated circuits designed for automotive and industrial sensor applications. All family members are well suited for highly accurate amplification and sensor-specific correction of resistive bridge sensor signals. An internal 16-bit RISC microcontroller running a correction algorithm compensates sensor offset, sensitivity, temperature drift, and nonlinearity of the connected sensor element. The required calibration coefficients are stored by the single-pass calibration procedure in an on-chip EEPROM. The ZSSC3135 is specially designed for piezo-resistive bridge sensor elements. The amplification stage with an analog gain of 105 in combination with the optional temperature compensation using an external temperature sensor fits the requirements of piezo-resistive sensor applications perfectly.

  • Adjustable to nearly all resistive bridge sensor types, analog gain of 105, overall gain up to 420
  • Sample rate up to 200 Hz
  • ADC resolution 13/14 bit
  • Safety functionality sensor connection
  • External temperature sensor
  • Digital compensation of sensor offset, sensitivity, temperature drift and nonlinearity
  • Output options: ratiometric analog voltage output (5% to 95% maximum, 12.4 bit resolution) or ZACwire™ (digital one-wire-interface)
  • Sensor biasing by voltage
  • High voltage protection up to 33V
  • Supply current: max. 5.5mA
  • Reverse polarity and short circuit protection
  • Operation temperature range as wide as -40°C to +150°C
  • Traceability by user-defined EEPROM entries

IDT Sensor Signal Conditioner (SSC) Evaluation Kit Overview

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.
