ZMDI AG introduced a single-chip sensor signal conditioner IC for resistive bridge sensors.
The ZSSC3170 is ZMDI's first device combining a fast and precise sensor conditioning IC with a LIN transceiver. The ZSSC3170 is designed for direct 12V supply provided by the vehicle power system. It enables the development of a complete sensor application with a single IC and helps to save component costs and board space.
Complies with LIN specifications 1.3 / 2.0 / 2.1
Configurable LIN publisher frame content
Data conversion rate of up to 430Hz fully utilizes the maximum LIN channel capacity of 20kbit/s
PWM high-side and low-side switches, support for LIN communication for end-of-line calibration
Digital compensation of offset, gain, temperature effects up to 2nd order, and nonlinearity up to 3rd order. Compensation of temperature sensor offset, gain, and nonlinearity up to 2nd order.
Internal or external temperature reference
Media temperature sensing by diode or RTD
Load dump protection of the LIN pin up to ±40V
Operating temperature range: -40 to 125°C
Extended operating temperature range: ≤150°C
±0.25% FSO @ -20 to 85°C
