ZMDI ZSSC3017 Sensor Signal Conditioning Integrated Circuit

ZMDI announced the ZSSC3017 16-bit sensor signal conditioning IC (SSC). The ZMDI ZSSC3017 features high accuracy amplification, 16-bit precision analog-to-digital conversion, and an 18-bit DSP for linearization and calibration functions. The CMOS device is ideal for altimeter/barometer systems, data merging with GPS receivers, medical gas and infusion pumps, and robotics. The ZSSC3017 is available as die for wafer bonding or in a TSSOP14 package. Packaged parts are priced at 1.13 Euro / 1.59 US$ in volumes of 10k. Samples and wafer material are available now.
