Sensor-to-Serial Communications with a Screwdriver

6B-Series I/O Modules Accept Variety of Inputs, Drive Current Loops; Provide Conditioning, Scaling, Linearizing, and Digitized Output

The 6B series of configurable digitizing signal-conditioning modules, an evolutionary step beyond the Analog Devices 3B and 5B analog signal-conditioner families, includes an a/d converter, microcontroller, memory and serial communications within each module. The key to making it practical is surface-mount technology. Read full article
