Sun angle sensor simplifies integration
Design How-To  
7/3/2008   Post a comment
Sensors for the measurement of the angle of incident light are required for many applications in vehicles, with air conditioning control being the most important. Available systems, however, can only be accommodated with great difficulty due to limited available space. In addition, they represent a source of optical irritation. The single-chip ASIC-based solution described avoids all these problems.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
