Hi Charles, Based on the TI link you provided for additonal information, they provide a wealth of hardware, software, and reference design tools for the engineer to get hands-on knowledge about their product. I was really impress TI has built a model to be simulated in Webench for a first hand investigation of their AFE system without plopping down dollars for physical hardware. Nice article!
Thanks, Mrdon. The applications for this technology appear to be immense. Virtually every commercial building and even most homes have some kind of gas detection system. I think TI is on the right track.
Welcome Charles, TI and Analoge Devices seem to be the leaders in developing Sensor on the Chip technology. The Mining Industry would definitely benefit from this gas detection system technology in monitoring the air quality of underground mines.
If you’re designing a handheld device or industrial machine that will employ a user interface, then you’ll want to check out the upcoming Design News Continuing Education Center course, "Engineering Principles Behind Advanced User Interface Technologies.”
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
