Jan 25 - Part 5. Today’s Smart Sensors
Continuing Education Center 
1/25/2013  187 comments
This tutorial provides information on what sensors are available today and insight into the types of sensors that are under development.
Jan 24 - Part 4. Transitioning From Analog Sensing to the Digital Control World
Continuing Education Center 
1/24/2013  223 comments
If you are not familiar with the problems that are involved with applying the output of an analog sensor to a digital control system, find out from our expert in this session.
Jan 23 - Part 3. A Case Study of Smart Sensor Development.
Continuing Education Center 
1/23/2013  224 comments
In this tutorial, our lecturer discusses the development of a smart sensor from concept (including the physics of the base sensor) through the design tradeoffs and manufacturability issues to deployment.
Jan 22 - Part 2. Basics of Sensor Compensation for Capacitive Sensors.
Continuing Education Center 
1/22/2013  213 comments
This tutorial explores the techniques and available options that simplify users’ design-in of capacitive sensors, which have more complex requirements than piezoresistive sensors.
Jan 21 - Part 1. Basics of Sensor Compensation for Piezoresistive Sensors.
Continuing Education Center 
1/21/2013  175 comments
In this session our expert addresses calibration, linearization, and signal integrity techniques for perhaps the most common sensing technique, piezoresistive sensors.
Jan 18 - Part 5. Advanced Example Designs
Continuing Education Center 
1/18/2013  204 comments
The review of some example designs with widely different low-power requirements will help solidify the main concepts and capabilities the modern low-power MCUs offer designers. The key low-power requirements of each design will be identified and matched with the key MCU capabilities needed to create efficient implementations.
Jan 17 - Part 4. Extending Battery Lifetime
Continuing Education Center 
1/17/2013  207 comments
Once the key concepts and capabilities of low-power MCUs are understood it is sometimes critical to use them to achieve a target battery lifetime. Understanding both the key concepts behind extending battery lifetime and the techniques for estimating battery lifetime is critical in achieving the most aggressive design requirements.
Jan 16 - Part 3. Low-Power Peripherals
Continuing Education Center 
1/16/2013  224 comments
Once the MCU low-power modes are understood it is important to understand how to most efficiently use the MCU peripherals. Modern low-power MCUs have special peripheral features that can assist in reducing power. A detailed look at these features is required to create more efficient designs.
Jan 15 - Part 2. Low-Power Modes in Detail
Continuing Education Center 
1/15/2013  246 comments
Effective use of the low-power modes (like Sleep, Stop, Snooze, and Standby) in modern MCUs is one of the most important ways to achieve the most power-efficient design. Knowing when and how to use these modes requires a detailed look at the advantages and disadvantages of these capabilities.
Jan 14 - Part 1. Introduction: Low-Power MCU Concepts & Capabilities
Continuing Education Center 
1/14/2013  282 comments
Modern MCUs have a variety of features that support very low-power operation. In order to get the most out of these new capabilities we will first review common concepts (like special low-power operating modes) and common capabilities (like special peripheral operations) that most modern low-power MCUs share.
