Product Details

The MAX35101 is a time-to-digital converter with built-in amplifier and comparator targeted as a complete analog front-end (AFE) solution for the ultrasonic heat meter and flow meter markets.

With a time measurement accuracy of 20ps and automatic differential time-of-flight (TOF) measurement, this device makes for simplified computation of liquid flow. Early edge detection ensures measurements are made with consistent wave patterns to greatly improve accuracy and eliminate erroneous measurements.

Multihit capability with stop-enable windowing allows the device to be fine-tuned for the application. Internal analog switches, an autozero amplifier/comparator, real-time clock (RTC), and programmable receiver sensitivity provide the analog interface and control for a minimal electrical bill of material solution. The RTC provides an event timing mode that is configurable and runs cyclic algorithms to minimize microprocessor interactivity and increase battery life.

Built-in arithmetic logic unit provides TOF difference measurements. A programmable receiver hit accumulator can be utilized to minimize the host microprocessor access and thus minimize current consumption.

For temperature measurement, the MAX35101 supports up to four (4) 2-wire PT1000/500 platinum resistive temperature detectors (RTD).

A simple 4-wire SPI interface allows any microcontroller to effectively configure the device for its intended measurement.

On-board 8KB user flash allows the MAX35101 to be nonvolatile-configurable and provide nonvolatile energy use data to be logged. Configuration can be recalled anytime with a SPI command.
