MCP651/2/5 (MCP65X) are the world's first and only op amps to include mCal, an
on-chip calibration circuit that calibrates offset voltage at power-up using an
internal power on-reset detector, or based upon the state of an external
pin. The result is a low initial voltage
offset and a means to minimize drift over time and temperature, which are
extremely important for applications involving instrumentation and sensor
conditioning, because this enables extremely precise measurements. The on-board
calibration circuitry within the MCP65x eliminates the need for external
calibrating components and minimizes software complexity by offering a simple,
single-pin hardware control of the calibration. Relative to a
chopper-stabilized or auto-zeroed amplifier, mCal Technology can provide a more
cost-effective solution and does not have the switching noise inherent to
chopper-stabilized amplifiers. mCal Technology offers a cost-effective, easy-to-use
alternative by eliminating the need for external calibration and can provide a
more cost-effective solution relative to a self-correcting architecture.
These new 3D-printing technologies and printers include some that are truly boundary-breaking: a sophisticated new sub-$10,000, 10-plus materials bioprinter, the first industrial-strength silicone 3D-printing service, and a clever twist on 3D printing and thermoforming for making high-quality realistic models.
Ear-based heart-rate monitoring gained momentum recently, as sensor maker Valencell Inc. announced it has licensed its biometric earpiece technology to Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd for use in so-called “hearable devices.”
