Designing for Field Instruments in Industrial Automation

This webcast will provide an overview of field instrumentation with a focus on specifics and trends in this market segment. Using a 4-20mA loop powered pressure transmitter as an example, the webcast will present details of system requirements, map them into the system architecture and circuit diagram, discuss the typical design challenges, and how today’s ICs provide solutions to those challenges.
