Market Focus: Isolated Signal Sensing
Customer expectations, as well as changes in standards, are driving the need for improved isolated amplifiers and delta-sigma modulators for current and voltage sensing. These products are fundamental for today’s high-efficiency inverters – necessary in a diverse array of applications from industrial welders to vehicle electrification to green energy solar inverters. Silicon Labs’ new Si892x, Si893x, and Si894x isolated amplifiers and delta-sigma modulators provide high-precision isolated voltage and current measurements with minimal drift over temperature while protecting against high voltage transients. This presentation will provide an overview of this new family that address the latest requirements.
Technical Focus: Total Gain Error Calculation
The most common question we receive from customers is how to calculate overall accuracy. This session will examine static measurement error sources and present examples of how to use the datasheet specifications to estimate the contribution of each of these error sources to the total error of the measurement.
