@DrLock: Where is the anti-aliasing filter? If I have to implement it myself external to the chip, then there is no point in making the ports configurable, because I have just locked down the ADC channels.
Thsi topic did come up while I was being briefed on this little beauty -- but rather than me put words into Maxim's (metaphorical) mouth, I'll ask the folks at Maxim to respond ... watch this space.
@AZskibum: Why call it a Swiss Army knife, when it's not trying to be one?
Well, it's one of those chips that can do so many different things in so many different applications -- a bit like a Swiss Army Knife with one of those special attachments for extracting boy scouts from horses' hooves
@David: ...but I forgot to pack it in my checked baggage and they took it off me at Johannesburg airport some years ago...
I hate it when that happens -- I've lost more knives that way -- also when I went down to the courthouse, I forgot I had a knife on my belt -- them made me hide it in the bushes outside before letting me in the building
I saw this chip just the other day and was super excited about it. I even have an application in development where I could use it, but the MAX11300 has one major hole: Where is the anti-aliasing filter? If I have to implement it myself external to the chip, then there is no point in making the ports configurable, because I have just locked down the ADC channels.
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
