Industrial Automation - Demonstrating Field Instrumentation and Process Control Solutions
A Complete Loop Powered HART Smart Transmitter Reference Design:
An industrial solution for smart transmitter and HART applications is demonstrated showing a complete Hart reference design which is compliance tested, verified and registered as an approved HART solution with the HART Communication Foundation. This highlights the excellent low power capabilities of the featured parts.
The demonstration validates the benefits of HART, for enhanced system diagnostic capabilities, like over-temperature or under voltage. It addresses the challenges of smart transmitter design such as low power together with enhanced functionality, resolution and accuracy leading to enhanced end system productivity and reduced component size to fit restricted space constraints.
AD5421 - Loop powered DAC with Intelligent power management AD5700 - HART Communication modem ADuCM360 - High resolution, low powered converter technology
A Process Control High Speed Multichannel Analog Front End:
This application demonstrates a complete 16-bit, high speed data acquisition system-on-chip. Utilizing ADI proprietary iCMOS® high-voltage industrial process technology to handle the full range of industrial signal levels, providing a complete factory pre-calibrated and tested signal chain. This solution addresses traditional analog signal-conditioning challenges that were once a standard part of the system design process. The ADuCM360 Cortex M3 is used for communication, while the integrated, high resolution 24-Bit ADCs can be used for monitoring system parameters without the need of external signal conditioning.
