@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.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
