Accelerating Sensor System Development with Reference Designs and Open Source Software
This tutorial will analyze the design and subsequent improvements made to an optical liquid analysis platform, focusing on the benefits of using standard hardware and open-source software frameworks to accelerate all phases of system design, from proof of concept to production. Application of these frameworks to other sensor technologies such as temperature, angular rate, acceleration, and general-purpose analog input / output, will also be presented and demonstrated.

Sneak Peek At Our Demos:

Reduce EMI with Silent Switcher µModule Regulator

ADI’s new 36Vin, 60Vin multioutput Silent Switcher® μModule regulators features wide operating frequency range which minimizes EMI/EMC emission making them ideal for noise sensitive applications such as medical imaging, wireless communication, and Test & Measurement applications.

Over-The-Top Precision Bi-directional Current Sensing

Get ready to Amplify your application with the ADA4099-1! This 5th generation Over-The-Top amplifier now provides 2x the speed without compromising the power! You still get ADI’s industry leading precision and the ability to survive the harshest inputs, but we have worked hard to improve the stability and the noise performance over previous generations. Stop by our booth to see for yourself how we are converting amperes to bits.

Ultra Low Power Accelerometer for Wearables, Vitals Monitoring, and Motion-Enabled Smart Systems

The ADXL367 is an ultralow power, 3-axis MEMS accelerometer that consumes only 0.8 µA at a 100 Hz output data rate and 160 nA when in motion-triggered wake-up mode. Unlike accelerometers that use power duty cycling to achieve low power consumption, the ADXL367 does not alias input signals by under sampling; it samples the full bandwidth of the sensor at all data rates. The ADXL367 brings value in terms of power consumption while maintaining excellent noise performance. This power consumption applies not only in standby mode (when the part is inactive), but also in wakeup mode and measurement mode as well. The ADXL367 outshines the competition in each of these modes to allow customer to create motion-activated systems that consume as little power as possible.

New Integrated AMR Angle Sensor with Signal Conditioning and Differential Outputs

The ADA4570 Demo includes the sensor evaluation board with a hand rotary magnet assembly allowing the user to position and rotate a dipole magnet in front of the ADA4570 sensor. The sensor detects the angular rotation of the corresponding magnet fields and delivers amplified differential cosine and sine output signals. The magnetic angle (α) calculated from the SIN and COS differential outputs represents the physical orientation of the magnet with respect to the ADA4570 in the 0° to 180° measurement range.

Vibration Development Platform for Seismic, Building, and Construction Monitoring

The CN0501 development platform provides 3-axis of wideband accelerometer and alternative Geophone inputs which are simultaneously sampled and recorded in the digital domain. Applications range from seismic monitoring, building monitoring, even blasting or drilling applications where sensitive vibrations need to be measured and analyzed. The CN0501 development platform features high performance sensors, data acquisition, and power components needed to measure the event, along with open-source software and Python libraries to help visualize, post-process, and analyze the data.

Physical Measurements to Actionable Data

Analog performance of sensors and data acquisition devices is only part of the story - in order for system designers to take advantage of these technologies, hardware reference designs must be simple, low-cost, compatible with industry-standard platforms (like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, ZedBoard, etc.) and easy to modify. Even after hardware connectivity has been established, it is useless without software support - generic device drivers, and example top-level applications. We will be demonstrating a range of complete sensing, signal chain, and signal generation solutions running on both Linux and microcontroller platforms.

Trusted Measurement Unit Dead Reckoning

See how ADI’s IMU technology is capable of delivering in the event of a GNSS outage in autonomous (self-driving) applications.

High-Performance DC and AC Contactless Current Sensing Path

Current sensing solutions have long relied on shunt-based devices, but the increased use of contactless technologies has exposed limitations in bandwidth and DC sensing capability. The ideal tech solution is one that allows for both AC and DC current measurement, coupled with fault detection and diagnostic ability. Thanks to Analog Devices' in-house AMR process and our signal chain and systems expertise, the limitations of current sensing systems can be overcome. This demo will showcase ADI’s ADAF1080 AMR solution, with a focus on integration into sustainable technologies such as solar, wind and EV batteries.

Optical Liquid Analysis in a Flash with ADPD4101

Introducing a single optical platform that can be easily configured and customized to produce consistently high sensitivity and robust optical measurements. Rapidly applying optical measurements to liquid analysis enables simplified field deployment in industrial and instrumentation applications such as environmental and process monitoring. The CN0503 optical platform reference design showcases application of 4 liquid analysis measurement channels using the ADPD4101 highly integrated photometric front end with 100dB SNR. Users can run out-of-the-box fluorescence, absorbance, and scattering measurements with easy configurability to demonstrate common water quality parameters including colorimetric pH, turbidity, and various ions or compounds with high SNR and robust operation in ambient light.

Condition-Based Monitoring Development Platform - CN0549

Machine condition-based monitoring (CbM) by means of vibration sensing is growing in importance in industrial applications. To provide an accurate representation of machinery that needs monitoring, large datasets must be collected to determine a baseline operating point for the equipment in both normal operating modes and failure conditions. An algorithm or threshold detection routine can be created to provide the correct analysis for this equipment.

Using MEMS devices, we are demonstrating how CbM requires capturing full bandwidth data to ensure that all harmonics, aliasing, and other mechanical interactions in both the time and frequency domain are accounted. This data collection requires a high-performance sensor and data acquisition (DAQ) system that can provide high fidelity, real-time data into a data analysis tool or application.

High-resolution 3D Time-of-Flight

Learn how ADI's high-resolution and ultra-precise time-of flight technology enables portable 3D dimensioning for the logistics and retail markets, among others. Our point and click dimensioning technology enables rapid and accurate measurements for use by couriers, fulfillment centers, warehouses, retail and other applications. The ability to capture accurate volumetric data early in the chain of custody allows for efficiency planning along the entire route of the package leading to significant cost savings. Volume information can also be used to optimally utilize storage space in a warehouse or semi trailer.

Condition Based Monitoring (CBM) of industrial Equipment, Assets and Structures: Presented by Arrow

Watch and learn how you can extend the life time of your equipment, reduce unplanned downtime, cut maintenance costs and unlock potential energy savings. Our iCOMOX Condition Based Monitoring demonstration monitors operating conditions from the surface of the equipment to identify potential faults and reduce risks associated with equipment operation and maintenance.
