DLP2010NIR - Request Info.
The DLP2010NIR digital micromirror device (DMD) acts as a spatial light modulator (SLM) to steer near-infrared (NIR) light and create patterns with speed, precision, and efficiency. Featuring high resolution in a compact form factor, the DLP2010NIR DMD is often combined with a grating single element detector to replace expensive InGaAs linear array-based detector designs, leading to high performance, cost-effective portable NIR Spectroscopy solutions. The DLP2010NIR DMD enables wavelength control and programmable spectrum and is well suited for low power mobile applications such as skin analysis, material identification and chemical sensing.

LDC1614 - See LDC1614 Details
The LDC1612 and LDC1614 are 2- and 4-channel, 28-bit inductance to digital converters (LDCs) for inductive sensing solutions. With multiple channels and support for remote sensing, the LDC1612 and LDC1614 enable the performance and reliability benefits of inductive sensing to be realized at minimal cost and power. The products are easy to use, only requiring that the sensor frequency be within 1 kHz and 10 MHz to begin sensing. The wide 1 kHz to 10 MHz sensor frequency range also enables use of very small PCB coils, further reducing sensing solution cost and size.

PGA900 - See PGA900 Details
The PGA900 is a signal conditioner for resistive sensing applications. It can accommodate various sensing element types. The PGA900 conditions its input signals by amplification and digitization through two analog front end channels. With the user programmed software in the on-chip ARM Cortex M0 processor, the PGA900 can perform linearization, temperature compensation, and other user defined compensation algorithms. The conditioned signal can be output as ratiometric voltage, absolute voltage, 4- to 20-mA current loop or PWM. The data and configuration registers can also be accessed through SPI, I2C, UART, and two GPIO ports. In addition, the unique OWI allows communication and configuration through the power supply pin without using additional lines. The PGA900 operating voltage is from 3.3 to 30 V and it can operate in temperatures from –40°C to 150°C.
