It is very frustrating to read a product announcement such as this...and then go to the mfr's website (in this case www.maxim-ic.com) only to discover that the announced part number cannot be found on the site! Manufacturers: If you don't have any info on a product, don't advertise it!!!
@littlemac: You're right. This was an error on our part. Our policy is not to mention a part without at least a preliminary data sheet.
We have now posted the information on the two missing parts:
http://www.maximintegrated.com/MAX31865 -- RTD-to-Digital Converter
http://www.maximintegrated.com/MAX78638 -- Three Phase Energy Measurement and Motor Diagnostics Device
Thank you for taking us to task. We are fixing our procedures to prevent recurrence.
-- Moe Rubenzahl, Executive Director of Internet Marketing, Maxim Integrated
The info seems done in a hurry, a wry smile at this : "Status: Not Recommended for New Designs " Really ?
- and still no Data, just a landing page with errors. So I have no idea of the package, or price, of the MAX78638
Yes, it's a preliminary part. We don't like to pre-announce parts but there are a few exceptions.
Click the link to be notified when a full data sheet is available. You'll get an automatic e-mail when more data is available.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
