8-bit MCUs just keep getting better and more integrated. Extension Media's Chris A. Ciufo interviews Microchip's 8-bit MCU guru Greg Robinson. Among the new "intelligent analog" PIC16F170X/171X family's best features: two internal Op Amps and Zero Cross Detect--both analog features reduce board space and BOM cost. 10-bit ADC and 8-bit DACs plus a programmable pin crossbar make these 8-bangers some of the most innovative in the market.
8-bit MCU runs inductive cooktop demo. Microchip's Greg Robinson, 8-bit MCU director, shows Extension Media's Chris A. Ciufo the new PIC16F170X/171X in a "smart" kitchen. This device not only takes the heat...it controls it!
NXP offers the worlds lowest power consumption touch and proximity sensors available on the market. Our capacitive sensors offer industry-leading robustness to EMC, making NXP a worldwide leader in low power capacitive touch sensors.
A collaborative effort by Washington State University researchers, US Geological Survey, and NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab might hold the key to predicting volcanic eruptions.
This device uses MEMS based rate gyro sensors mounted to a gimbaled camera rig to measure the angular rate of the camera's rotation. The gyro signals are amplified to drive DC servo motors coupled to the camera's rotational axes. As a gyro measures the cameras rotation about an axis, the corresponding servo motor applies an opposing torque on the platform to oppose camera rotation.
Demo of ShapeAccelArray™ (SAA), a new monitoring technology that allows engineers to visualize movement in the ground or in solid structures, simply by connecting to the Internet.
NSF funded movie about MEMS manufacturing. MEMS includes Texas Instruments' packaging of DLP technology; Hewlett Packard's fabrication of the thermal inkjet print heads; and Freescale's design of sensors. Silicon Run Productions worked with their advisory committee and MEMS Industry Group (MIG) to include a variety of MEMS devices and their applications.
