The SD-15900 two-speed synchro or resolver combiner works in conjunction with any two synchro- or resolver-to-digital converters. The SD-15900 device combines the digital information from the coarse S/D channel and the digital information from the fine S/D channel, resulting in up to 22 bits of angular data. The combiner and S/D converters can be powered by a single 5V dc power supply. The small size of the components and the high accuracy obtainable with two-speed combinations make the combiner targeted for use in high-performance military and industrial position-control systems.
